With the upcoming anniversary of the August 29, 1970 Chicano Moratorium in Los Angeles, the largest antiwar protest ever in the Chicano/Mexicano community, speakers Carlos Montes and Charley Trujillo discuss and reflect on the mobilization of the Chicano community in the sixties and seventies against the Vietnam War and the similarities we see today in the continued targeting of the Latino and other immigrant and minority communities for military service.
Carlos Montes is an Immigrant Rights and Anti-War activist based in Los Angeles. He is one of the original organizers of the East LA school walkouts and of the first original Chicano Moratorium.
Charley Trujillo is a local Award-winning Author and Vietnam War Veteran
