    Clear Channel's La Preciosa stations nationwide will observe the “A Day Without A Latino” boycott by silencing all on-air staff on Monday, May 1.

    The national initiative is designed as an immigrant work and school boycott to protest controversial Bush administration immigration reforms.

    Spanish-language variety stations participating include KBFP Bakersfield, Calif.; KEGL Dallas; KFSO Fresno, Calif.; WGBT Greensboro, N.C.; KWID Las Vegas; WLPP Louisville, Ky.; KMRQ Modesto, Calif.; KPRC Monterey, Calif.; KDIF Riverside, Calif.; KNFX Rochester, Minn.; XOCL San Diego; KSJO San Francisco-San Jose; KMSY San Luis Obispo, Calif.; KPSE Santa Barbara, Calif.; KWSL Sioux City, Iowa; KTZR Tucson, Ariz.; and KIZS Tulsa, Okla.

    “As the morning host for the La Preciosa Network, words are my life,” Alex “El Genio” Lucas said in a release, “But sometimes silence makes a bigger point. Many of our listeners will be observing 'A Day without a Latino' — our silence is a way of saying, ‘We hear you.'” :lalala:

    Wish they'd do that here. A day of peace without Mexican restaurant music at the jobsite. One could only hope ......
