47th National Chicano Moratorium Commemoration

Saturday Aug. 26, 2017 11a


Build Self Determination

Resist white supremacy

On August 29, 1970 over 30,000 Raza and supporters marched peacefully against the war in Vietnam and oppressive policies. The peaceful march through ELA arrived at Laguna Park (renamed Ruben Salazar Park) for a rally and program that was raided without warning by the Sheriffs, hundreds were arrested and injured, Three were killed by the Sheriffs, Lynn Ward-Brown Beret, Angel Diaz-Brown Beret and journalist Ruben Salazar.

The 47th Commemoration continues to honor this historical event by opposing the ongoing oppressive policies that are reversing many laws protecting not just Chicanos, Mexicanos, Latinos, but all people. At the center of these oppressive policies is white supremacy whose roots were established by European white supremacy.

Join the Marcha Y Rally, 9:00 AM from Atlantic Park, 570 S. Atlantic Blvd., & 6th St., to Ruben Salazar Park, 3864 Whittier Blvd., and Ditman Ave., for 12:30 PM Rally.
