Turning Points

In October 1994, more than 70,000 people converged to protest the impeding
passage of California's statewide initiative, Proposition 187.  Many observers
believe that the defiant display by protesters of Mexican flags inflamed anti-immigrant sentiment and contributed to the initiative's subsequent passage.
