    Police brutality against Mexican Americans "smacks of genocide," MAYO Executive Director Carlos Guerra told the United Press International, "and we are standing up to make sure that our feelings are understood and that we will not stand for police murders anymore where the shooting of people takes place without justice."
    Following the quiet rally, protesters also conducted a selective boycott of certain Pharr merchants opposed to MAYO and the farm union.
