Pablo Paredes discussing a "241 mile quest for peace starting in Tijuana, Mexico, going through the Marine Corps Depot at Camp Pendleton to the Cesar Chavez burial site in La Paz, CA, culminating in The Mission district of San Francisco with a memorial ceremony and blood drive". Starting March 12, ending March 27, 2006 and inspired by Gandhi's Salt March (also 241 miles in length) to free India from the British, the walk brought out community support in small and large communities. This photo was taken in Los Angeles at the South Central Farm following a large rally against the Iraq war in downtown L.A.

1n 2004, Navy Petty Officer Pablo Paredes refused orders to board the amphibious assault ship Bonhomme Richard and was court-martialed for his resistance to the war (read more
