California ferret owners dug in their claws Thursday to demand legalization of their pets. While some "walked" empty leashes to symbolize a state ban on the cute, weasel-like creature, others braved a California law and brought their furry friends out in the open. "I think the thing we need to do is inform people about ferrets, because there's a lot of misinformation out there," said Chris Kibler, 35. "It's like any animal.

If all social protest movements need a martyr, the free-the-ferrets campaign in California may finally have found one: Rocky. The 2 1/2-year-old pet and boon companion of Pat Wright, chairman and founder of San Diego-based Ferrets Anonymous, was put to death by order of county health officials here after biting a television cameraman at a pro-ferrets rally last month.

The Persian Gulf War continues to stir anti-war sentiment across the country and the Southland. In San Diego, a weekly vigil and march at Balboa Park drew between 1,000 to 1,500 people Sunday. The Coalition for Peace in the Middle East, a San Diego-based organization, has sponsored the weekly vigils in an area between the lily pond and the fountain in the park. Those who called for an end to the war marched with placards filled with anti-war messages and the peace symbol.

Anti-abortion lawyer Cyrus Zal, slapped with a 90-day jail term by a judge, was ordered to report to jail by a San Diego appeals court that found the sentence justified. Zal had appealed the sentence stemming from a contempt of court citation El Cajon Municipal Court Judge Larrie R. Brainard imposed at a February trial. But the 4th District Court of Appeal rejected the appeal and ordered the Folsom-based lawyer to report to the San Diego County jail on June 15.

Nearly 500 people, including garment workers, and labor and environmental leaders, joined Thursday at the U.S.-Mexico border to protest the proposed North American Free Trade Agreement. Chanting "$4 a day, no way!" the demonstration against the trade agreement was one of the largest thus far in San Diego County, which analysts say will feel the most immediate impact from the agreement.

A year ago, Carlos Nava bought five acres in Boulevard in the hope that its pristine air would soothe his failing lungs. Now Nava is adding his halting voice to the outcry against a hazardous waste incinerator proposed for southeast San Diego County. "I feel a duty to bring my lungs and my voice as testimony to what chemicals can do," Nava said softly, his words punctuated by sharp gasps.

Employing a decisive show of force after a night of massive looting and marauding, San Francisco police Friday night squashed a scheduled demonstration by arresting about 200 startled protesters even before they had a chance to organize. In sharp contrast to initially sluggish law enforcement tactics in Los Angeles, police warned would-be demonstrators gathering at nightfall in the heavily Latino Mission district that they would be arrested unless they dispersed. Officers then promptly herded the predominantly youthful crowd into a circle, surrounded them and slapped plastic cuffs on their wrists.

More than 1,000 people gathered along the U.S.-Mexico border Friday and jointly turned on their vehicle headlights at dusk to show their dissatisfaction with the continued flow of illegal immigrants from Latin America. It was the largest turnout to date in the protest, organized by a loose coalition of area residents who want to dramatize what they consider a lack of control along the notoriously porous international boundary.
