Francisco Aguirre

The members M. Meo and H. Soles of the Cascadia Chapter stood shoulder to shoulder with the Lutheran Church, the director for Hispanic affairs for the state of Oregon, and over 100 community groups in solidarity with the nonviolent community organizer Francisco Aguirre, who is being ‘short-listed’ for deportation because he has lived a constructive life.

The gentleman is an organizer, and an effective one, among the Hispanic community of Portland. That explains why an irregularity of some 20 years ago even is on the table at all; that is what our demonstration asked be forgotten and forgiven, given the productive career Mister Aguirre has pursued for the past couple of decades in his adoptive land.

The website will post photographic evidence when and if they become available.
