Mission Statement: The Mission of the May 19th Movement is to identify indigenous leadership from the oppressed working class communities of Los Angeles and run these leaders as Independent Candidates in the 2011 Los Angeles City Council elections in the 8th and 9th council districts. These independent candidates will represent the interest the interest of their communities, not for the interest of the status quo. We already have these rights as guarantee by the Declaration of Human Rights. The problem is that there is lack of political will and organization to effect these rights.
