HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE:
On August 29, 1970, 20,000 Chicana/os marched against the Vietnam War and the high casualty rate of Chicanos in East Los Angeles.

The peaceful protest was attacked by the LA Police and LA Sheriffs Departments. Hundreds were arrested, beaten, and/or tear gassed; and three people were killed: Ruben Salazar, Lynn Ward, and Angel Diaz.

The people fought back against this police brutality and a rebellion followed. This is our Chicano Memorial Day of Resistance August 29. This is why we ask you to take action by:

Tell the Republican leaders in the House of Representatives: Legalization for All! Stop the Deportations! Don’t militarize the border, No more US Wars, Stop targeting immigrants especially Chicanos and Latinos for military recruitment.

Thursday, August 29: Call the House Leader John Boehner!

Take action for legalization now/stop the deportations!
On Thursday, August 29, be sure to make your call!
