Soglin, state Rep. Chris Taylor, Norm Stockwell, John Nicolas and the Kailin family — a family representing Clarence Kailin, one of the soldiers honored on the historical marker that remembers the Voluntarios Internacionales de la Libertad — all attended the event.
“The only wish I have for those who desecrated this monument is that they come forward. Not to be arrested, I’m not interested in that. I’d like them to come forward and explain to us what they are thinking,” Soglin said in a speech during the vigil.
