    Location 2100 Maple Los Angeles, CA INTERESTING POINTS: 1. Interesting that this group has the recourses to rent a permanent facility. (even if it is in downtown) 2. Note the mural there is a man holding a Palestinian flag, leading a group of Hispanic people. 3. This facility just opened this month. Downtown Los Angeles is unbelievably dirty. Trash everywhere and just dirt. Very few light posts so it is dark and creepy. The meeting was supposed to start at 6:00 but at 7;15 a gang looking crowd was developing and since I was alone, I thought it best to...

    Senator Barack Obama is now the Democratic nominee for President of the United States of America. This seems like a good time to consider who this man is. Here are some quotes from his autobiographies Dreams of My Father and The Audacity of Hope that might help Americans and the rest of the world get a sense of this man who is one general election away from the Oval Office. Before you read them consider that Henry Kissinger once remarked that presidents come into office and leave office the the same men. The job is too demanding to permit opportunities...

    A riot at a federal penitentiary in Three Rivers this morning has left one prisoner dead and 22 others injured.

He was serving a 54-month sentence for violating his federal supervision related to a conviction on charges of possession with intent to distribute marijuana and being in this country illegally after being previously deported to Mexico.

(Photo by Motoya Nakamura)     PORTLAND, Ore. — For much of the past 40 years, the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan — or, Movement of Chicano Students of Aztlan — has been criticized as racist and radical. Members sparked riots. Key philosophies, such as "For the race, everything; for those outside the race, nothing," even rejected non-Mexicans.But...

    MEXICO CITY -- Mexico's Congress was swayed Tuesday by a 7-year-old boy on a mission to save his mom. Second-grader Saul Arellano, a U.S. citizen, appeared in Mexico's 500-member Chamber of Deputies to plead for help in lobbying Washington to stop the deportation of his mother, an illegal immigrant who has taken refuge in a Chicago church. His efforts paid off with a resolution calling on the Bush administration to suspend the deportation of Elvira Arellano and any other illegal immigrant parents of U.S. citizens. If the U.S. agrees, it would "create a precedent that will benefit more than 4.9...

    Cruz Bustamante, radical Chicano nationalist? Hardly the first impression one gets of California's Democratic lieutenant governor, a portly, balding man who favors bookish spectacles and business suits. But with Bustamante now in contention to be the successor to Gray Davis if the governor is recalled Oct. 7, some conservative activists are questioning his racial beliefs, pointing to his membership, as a student at Fresno State College decades ago, in the Chicano student group MEChA. In recent weeks these critics have been spreading their message on the Internet and on conservative talk radio, and this week they got national exposure on...

    Can You Help America? Are you willing to give five minutes or more of your time to think about a solution to a very costly problem that exists in every State in the Union? If you listen to Rush Limbaugh on TV or on his radio show, you will hear him discuss how dumb and ineffective Democrats can be. He has been saying that the Democrats are only good at whining about problems, not at fixing problems. Rush says the Republicans are the only party that actually fixes problems. Do you believe this? is overflowing with Republicans isn't it?...
