Esther and Jessica of Cal Poly Pomona (wearing MEChA shirts)meet Sal Castro on the streets of LA Thurday August 17 at approx 9pm. Sal was invited by Gloria Molina to attend the DNC. Sal Castro, a highschool teacher at Belmont HS was arrested in 1968 for conspiracy as he advised and helped Chicana and Chicano students organize protest against the racist education system. One year later as a result of these blowouts, MEChA was founded... what a coincidence. See link on bottom for more history on Sal Castro and the Chicano Movement.
