Demonstrators meet in Phoenix to rally for social justice and to protest what they call an "out-of-touch" government. Organized by Equality Arizona and Phoenix Pride, the rally follows the veto of a bill considered discriminatory against LGBT people.

Introduction
BARRIOZONA Magazine Grassroots Journalism www.barriozona.com "History is about to change" Published in Arizona to the world wide web. Editor: Eduardo Barraza www.barriozona.com editor(at)barriozona.com
Barriozona is published by the Hispanic Institute of Social Issues and began as a print publication in December 2002. In the Spring of 2006, Barriozona debuted as an E-zine or on-line magazine to reach a wider audience. Barriozona is primarily focused on presenting information about the different struggles faced by members of the generally called Latino/Hispanic community in the United States.

Recognizing that many people are marginalized from society and lack the means of being heard, Barriozona emphasizes on publishing stories that in many cases are largerly ignored -voluntarily or involuntarily- by the so called mainstream or corporate media. Barriozona does not pretend to be the voice of the people or speak for the people. We strongly believe that every human being has his or her own unique and powerful voice, their own points of view, as well as and his or her own way and ability to express their feelings and opinions. Barriozona doesn't give a voice, rather presents the voices of men and women who are not in any way "voiceless" but unable to be heard for or are ignored for many social, political or other reasons.

Over the years Barriozona has been published, it has been able to fulfill this living and ongoing mission. Barriozona Wiki now is opening the door for individuals who don't want just to be heard, but who want to go a step further to document their own stories, experiences and to give their account of their times and strugless. Barriozona's vision is evolving and expanding and this Wiki is the most recent way to create a community of contributors who with their experiences and their voices can document a contemporary struggle.

It is necessary to clarify that this Wiki is not an individual blog or a site for anonymous users to vent their frustrations or anger, but a virtual space for people who are serious about collaborating in a community erffort.
