Bus loads of farmers and farm workers from the Central Valley and the Central Coast descended on the state capitol this morning to take part in a Latino-sponsored water rally as reported by the Sacramento Bee.  The purpose of the rally was to bring attention to the state’s severe water shortage and the effect it is having.  Shouts of, “No water – no jobs!” rang loud and clear and were accompanied by signs that read, “Sin agua=no ay future” (No water, No future).
