Permit requested for Navajo march in border town


Organizers from the Navajo Nation are planning a peaceful march in Farmington, New Mexico, to call attention to racism in border towns.

Duane "Chili" Yazzie, the president of the Shiprock Chapter, said the march is not a protest. He said it will commemorate people who have been affected by violence in places like Farmington.

Yazzie said details of the September 2 march are still being worked out. A permit has been requested from the city.

A second march is being planned at a later date.
