In the midst of pending additional budget cuts to public education, anti-war protestors took to the street explaining their belief that funding for the war in the Middle East could be used instead for education and jobs.
Though only a handful of people came out to hold signs and chant messages demanding peace, money for education and jobs, and not against the soldiers but against the war, many cars traveling through Monte Vista Crossings honked in support of their signs promoting peace.
Allen Mendoza, 20 of Turlock, has been organizing a few peace rallies throughout the last year.
Mendoza has said in the past that these rallies can include people peacefully protesting all kinds of issues for the sake of unity and peace.
Mendoza has not been discouraged by low turnouts and will continue his efforts to support unity and peace with a May 2nd march from Turlock Downtown’s Central Park to Monte Vista Crossings and back.
