Protests Turn Violent At Pajaro Valley High

Santa Cruz Sentinal

Nearly 1,000 high school students came precariously close to clashing with dozens of officers armed with batons Tuesday after a demonstration on immigration rights turned into a tense standoff above Highway 1 near Pajaro Valley High School and ended with five arrests.

The demonstration was one of many held across the country to coincide with the first day of immigration reform talks by the U.S. Senate. It was the second protest staged by Watsonville students in as many days.
