Poor people do not have the money the supporters of Proposition N and R have. We do not have the 2 million dollars they spent to promote these Propositions. But what we do have is power. People power. We can march with our feet and we can vote. And we can beat them with numbers, not money. This is what hundreds people did on Saturday, November 2, 2002.
