The Chicano Moratorium brought together 30,000 people – mainly from the Mexican American communities in the Los Angeles area – to protest the Vietnam War and “racism towards people of Mexican heritage”.
In many ways this was the birth of the modern Chicano rights movement, now so prominent in the the illegal immigration debate.
The movement was guided by Communist Party USA members like Bert Corona and Alinsky inspired socialist sympathizers like Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta.
The following is an interview of Chicano Moratorium leader Rosalio Munoz about the significance of the Aug. 29, 1970 protest, then and now. Munoz is now chair of the Communist Party’s Mexican-American Equality Commission, the Party body charged with organizing Latino protest movements, voter registration drives and delivering the Mexican-American vote to the Democratic party.

well said anonymous. How many black Hatian orphanes did oil rich Mexico adopt? Oh the poor whinner state is corupt so it cannot do anything to help anyone out.And God forbid the Viva La Raza (La Racist) state allow any African immigration. Not sure which I despise more the La Racist state or the a-s kissing white fairies in America who are so self abusive they like it that their are race based scholarships for Hispanic illegals. Race based scholarships that they cannot get themselves because their mommas white.
I guess I know. I respect a strong advisary. I despise the self abusive white fairies more. What do you think?
It is time we apply communist principles to these Mexican communists.
While "nations" consist of a community of people of the same race, same religion, and speak the same language (as we still find in Mexico), communism regards those in its society as being equal regardless of race, color, creed, or national orgin.
Why are there only Mexicans in Mexico? Why should Mexico only belong to Mexicans?
We need to demand that Mexico be integrated. We need to ship in blacks, whites, asians, and everything not "Mexican". They practice "racism" in Mexico. By their own admission, this must stop.
What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
If Arizona was annexed back as an appendage of Mexico with the Mexican economy, where would these people want to "escape" to then? Utah, Montana, Canada?
