No Crete Detention Center Rally April 1, 2012

People opposed to a proposed Detention Center in Crete are marching from Chicago to Crete to draw attention to the issue.  The marchers left Our Lady of Guadalupe in Chicago on Friday, March 30, 2012.  Marchers plan to arrive in Crete at noon on April 1, 2012 and will march through Crete to the site of the proposed Detention Center.
