The Eugene Protest: Part Quatro

The best part of this protest was the counter-protestors who showed up. The usual bunch was there at the begining:


As you can see, "their" side of the street is empty at this point. But soon word got out to the MECHA boys and they started showing up. The Che t-shirts, sideways hats, dreadlocks, and a general lack of maturity were their trademarks.


As Greg from Oregon Billboard so aptly put it: "They forgot to put the word 'central' betwen the 'all' and 'Americans.'"


I would attempt to talk to these guys and they would turn their backs to me or stare off into space... much like a three year old who is ignoring you while in time-out. This is also when they started actively taking pictures of us.


The woman in the red (yes, that is a woman) threatened to break my camera if I took her picture...

NOTE: My camera is still in one piece...


I guess that these people were too stupid to realize that I am putting my own picture up as they insisted on taking pictures and making video the whole time. You will also notice that it's not just criminal aliens that these bright young students defend, they also defend rutheless killers.


At several points I was taking pictures of them taking pictures of us while we were taking pictures of them. Does that make sense? I would also note that the legendary "hard working" status that Mexicans enjoy might be a farse, this guy fell asleep while protesting!
NOTE: He may be an American but almost everyone in this group chooses to identify themselves as Mexican. (they don't understand the concept of citizenship or the difference between nationality and race)


The balding guy in the blue is University of Oregon professor Bob Bussel. He can be contacted HERE (make sure you put his name in the subject line) He is joining in on a song of "we shall overcome" or a chant of "we were here first." He also had a problem with my lack of "respect" for people... he didn't think that I should call illegal aliens criminals. When I asked if they were criminals he acted like it was just something that was a matter of opinion. He had no problem with the "respect" of people who called me "fucker" or screamed at me.

The girl in the front of the picture just likes chanting in my face. I think she sees me as an authority figure and I represent her parents who won't let her smoke pot or something. Just a guess...

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the excellent coverage on the protest yesterday. We appreciate all the hard work you have done!

I just wrote Bob Bussel asking him just what it is he wants to overcome - if I hear back from him, I'll let you know what he has to say.

Keep up the good work!

EL PLAN DE AZTLÁN
El Plan Espiritual de Aztlán
In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal "gringo" invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlán from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny.

We are free and sovereign to determine those tasks which are justly called for by our house, our land, the sweat of our brows, and by our hearts. Aztlán belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. We do not recognize capricious frontiers on the bronze continent

Brotherhood unites us, and love for our brothers makes us a people whose time has come and who struggles against the foreigner "gabacho" who exploits our riches and destroys our culture. With our heart in our hands and our hands in the soil, we declare the independence of our mestizo nation. We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlán.

For La Raza to do. Fuera de La Raza nada.


Program
El Plan Espiritual de Aztlán sets the theme that the Chicanos (La Raza de Bronze) must use their nationalism as the key or common denominator for mass mobilization and organization. Once we are committed to the idea and philosophy of El Plan de Aztlán, we can only conclude that social, economic, cultural, and political independence is the only road to total liberation from oppression, exploitation, and racism. Our struggle then must be for the control of our barrios, campos, pueblos, lands, our economy, our culture, and our political life. El Plan commits all levels of Chicano society - the barrio, the campo, the ranchero, the writer, the teacher, the worker, the professional - to La Causa.

Nationalism
Nationalism as the key to organization transcends all religious, political, class, and economic factions or boundaries. Nationalism is the common denominator that all members of La Raza can agree upon.



Organizational Goals
1. UNITY in the thinking of our people concerning the barrios, the pueblo, the campo, the land, the poor, the middle class, the professional-all committed to the liberation of La Raza.

2. ECONOMY: economic control of our lives and our communities can only come about by driving the exploiter out of our communities, our pueblos, and our lands and by controlling and developing our own talents, sweat, and resources. Cultural background and values which ignore materialism and embrace humanism will contribute to the act of cooperative buying and the distribution of resources and production to sustain an economic base for healthy growth and development Lands rightfully ours will be fought for and defended. Land and realty ownership will be acquired by the community for the people's welfare. Economic ties of responsibility must be secured by nationalism and the Chicano defense units.

3. EDUCATION must be relative to our people, i.e., history, culture, bilingual education, contributions, etc. Community control of our schools, our teachers, our administrators, our counselors, and our programs.

4. INSTITUTIONS shall serve our people by providing the service necessary for a full life and their welfare on the basis of restitution, not handouts or beggar's crumbs. Restitution for past economic slavery, political exploitation, ethnic and cultural psychological destruction and denial of civil and human rights. Institutions in our community which do not serve the people have no place in the community. The institutions belong to the people.

5. SELF-DEFENSE of the community must rely on the combined strength of the people. The front line defense will come from the barrios, the campos, the pueblos, and the ranchitos. Their involvement as protectors of their people will be given respect and dignity. They in turn offer their responsibility and their lives for their people. Those who place themselves in the front ranks for their people do so out of love and carnalismo. Those institutions which are fattened by our brothers to provide employment and political pork barrels for the gringo will do so only as acts of liberation and for La Causa. For the very young there will no longer be acts of juvenile delinquency, but revolutionary acts.

6. CULTURAL values of our people strengthen our identity and the moral backbone of the movement. Our culture unites and educates the family of La Raza towards liberation with one heart and one mind. We must insure that our writers, poets, musicians, and artists produce literature and art that is appealing to our people and relates to our revolutionary culture. Our cultural values of life, family, and home will serve as a powerful weapon to defeat the gringo dollar value system and encourage the process of love and brotherhood.

7. POLITICAL LIBERATION can only come through indepen-dent action on our part, since the two-party system is the same animal with two heads that feed from the same trough. Where we are a majority, we will control; where we are a minority, we will represent a pressure group; nationally, we will represent one party: La Familia de La Raza!

Action

1. Awareness and distribution of El Plan Espiritual de Aztlán. Presented at every meeting, demonstration, confrontation, courthouse, institution, administration, church, school, tree, building, car, and every place of human existence.

2. September 16, on the birthdate of Mexican Independence, a national walk-out by all Chicanos of all colleges and schools to be sustained until the complete revision of the educational system: its policy makers, administration, its curriculum, and its personnel to meet the needs of our community.

3. Self-Defense against the occupying forces of the oppressors at every school, every available man, woman, and child.

4. Community nationalization and organization of all Chicanos: El Plan Espiritual de Aztlán.

5. Economic program to drive the exploiter out of our community and a welding together of our people's combined resources to control their own production through cooperative effort.

6. Creation of an independent local, regional, and national political party.

A nation autonomous and free - culturally, socially, economically, and politically- will make its own decisions on the usage of our lands, the taxation of our goods, the utilization of our bodies for war, the determination of justice (reward and punishment), and the profit of our sweat.

El Plan de Aztlán is the plan of liberation!

Thanks Bobbi!

And Jack, it call all be summed up by one line:

For La Raza to do. Fuera de La Raza nada.

For the race everything. For those outside the race nothing.

Daniel: Ask that idiot Professor if he gets that line?

Diversity,an PC BS is as Savage say's is insanity when all you have to do is read the "MANIFESTO".

Some of the groups like CAIR and Mecha ARE NOT interested in diversity at all, an the professor can I guess just take his licks from each group...lose his head with one, his job with the other.

Thomas said...

After reading the Maifesto posted by the ubiquitus "Anonymous", all I can say is - folks, remove your heads from wherever you've planted them and realize that America is being invaded! Not only do the Islamonazis want to take over the US to impose 'sharia' [that is, the imposition of Islamic rule according to the Koran, for those who don't know the term], but the racists ['La Raza'- The Race] from the south of us want the same, the overthrow of the USA.

We are "at war" here, folks. Like it or not.

Bobbi said...

Daniel,
Rick Hickey is hosting the Richard Sturm show next Saturday. Has he asked you to be a guest? I was going to write and ask him to do that, but can't find his address. You'd make a great addition to the show.
Also, do you know how I can get Jan Margosian's email?
Thanks

"With our heart in our hands and our hands in the soil, we declare the independence of our mestizo nation."

Huh? Is there some cultural significance to burying their hearts?

The above is 1000 percent correct.

WAR....WIN OR DIE, it's that simple, one wants us dead,if we don't convert, the other wants us out....PERIOD, WTF IS THERE ABOUT THIS THE LEFT IS MISSING?

Deport every last one of those law breaking illegal alien sponges. Azatlan my ass. This is our country. You have done nothing to advance civilization. Mexico and Central America are third word corrupt cesspools and have been for hundreds of years. That is what you have accomplished as a people, now go back and fix that mess before you try and sneak in here and claim what we have. Since you have absolutly no respect for our laws, you deserve nothing and you will get nothing!

We will not stand for it any more and if you keep pushing, we are going to push back and you will all end up back where you came from.

You are right on point with the illegals ... we are not seeing what can take place here a balkenization sooner than anyone thinks when people are having to take lower paying jobs(third world style)and all the drugs coming from MEXICO ruining our families and future of our children and adults.
Keep this in the news, maybe someday before it's too late people will see what is happening to the United States.
