Description: Five people walk down a street carrying white banners. Photo focuses on a banner carried by two women reading "Salvadorean walk for peace in Central America." A flag and another banner is carried behind them. Photo caption reads: Thirty refugees from El Salvador, all of whom face deportation to their homeland and possible murder at the hands of death squads, are marching up the Peninsula from San Jose to San Francsico in a 'walk for peace' which they said is a protest against American policy in El Salvador and a commemoration of the murder of some 50,000 people there since 1980 by right-wing death squads and government forces. They're pictured in Palo Alto yesterday, and will reach San Francsico Saturday.
