Pittsburgh City Paper Prints Spanish Issue in Response to Proposed Law

In response to a proposed law to make English the official language of Pennsylvania, a special Spanish edition of Pittsburgh City Paper is on newsstands this week:

“It’s your own nightmare vision” of a City Paper in Spanish, [editor Chris] Potter said, “to raise a voice in protests to that kind of attitude and show the ways in which Latinos in Western Pennsylvania contribute to the community, in the arts, restaurants, and music.”

Besides stories on Latino restaurants, music and culture, the free weekly has a piece on Mexico, Pa., a tiny town in Juniata County, which has experienced an influx of Spanish residents, plus an editorial by Mr. Potter blasting “the endless campaign against ‘illegal immigration.’ ”

The complete digital edition of El Seminal De Pittsburgh can be found here.
