I took some pix of the statue of Senator Hoar in front of
City Hall, since the immigration rally will be there and
people have pointed out that Hoar was a major
advocate of human rights.
If you're blogging or otherwise writing about the
rally, I hope these pix come in handy. You don't have to
credit me if you use them.
"He was long noted as a fighter against political corruption, and
campaigned for the rights of African Americans and Native Americans.
He argued in the Senate in favor of Women's suffrage as early as 1886.
With the Spanish-American War, Hoar became one of the Senate's most
outspoken opponents of the Imperialism of the William McKinley
administration. He denounced the Philippine-American War, calling for
allowing independence of the Philippines. He also denounced the U.S.
intervention in Panama."
