Arizona outline.jpgThe latest protest over the Arizona immigration law will take place at this week’s Marlins-Diamondbacks series:

Immigrant rights activists from throughout South Florida plan to
gather at Sun Life Stadium in North Miami-Dade to distribute fliers and
hold up protest signs during the baseball game between the Arizona
Diamondbacks and the Florida Marlins starting at 7:10 p.m.

María Rodríguez, executive director of Florida Immigrant
Coalition, one of the groups involved in planning the protest,
called on all immigration activists last week to join the
protest.

There are a lot of immigration activists in south Florida, so you can bet there will be hundreds of people at the Marlins-Diamondbacks game. 

It may be slightly disruptive, but if the Marlins are smart they’ll actually let them into the park, thereby tripling attendance for the actual game.
