Spanish-Language DJs Don't Support Economic Boycott

Hoy, Posted: Apr 30, 2007

LOS ANGELES The country's most popular Spanish-language radio
personalities are not supporting the day-long economic boycott over
immigration policy, reports the April 26 edition of Spanish-language
newspaper Hoy. Eddie Sotelo, popularly known as El Piolin, spoke out on
air in favor of last years May 1 Great American Boycott. This year
however, Sotelo said he respected the planned boycott but would not
participate because he believes it hurts the United States more than it
helps. Another popular radio host, Renn Almendrez Coello, or 'El Cucuy',
told Hoy recently that he would not support a boycott either. El Pioln has
focused his efforts on a campaign to collect one million letters to
President Bush and U.S. Congress in favor of immigration reform. The
letter can be found at www.yoapoyolareformamigratoria.com
