Remembering the Chicano Moratorium, part of the Spirit of Bandung series sponsored by Third World Resistance and International League of People’s Struggle
On August 29,1970, over 30,000 Chicanos marched in the streets of LA to call an end to war in Vietnam. They understood that Chicanos were fighting an imperialist war that did not benefit their people in any way and they could not take part in it while the same forces telling them to fight in Vietnam were also attacking their folks here at home. Today Chicanos still understand the need to stand against imperialist wars in in Palestine, the Philippines, Ayotzinapa, and Ferguson. During this powerful panel we will explore Xicana historical and current connections to Third World anti-imperialist struggles and how we can strengthen ties of solidarity that lead to collective liberation.
Speakers include: Gabriel Hernandez, Nancy Hernandez, Raquel Jimenez, and Prishny Murillo
