Self-Introduction to Sacramento Area Latino Community Events Yahoo Group

Octubre 27, 2006 @9:55 AM ~ Hola Gente! I got an Email from Hermana Nancy with Sacra-Zapatistas about this new group, then, called Hermana Maria and we talked a bit.
I was born and raised in Sacramento, now live by Southside Park and joined this group this morning. My style is to be Honest, Open and Willing to change. That is HOW my personal progressive program works.
I am employed part-time as a Health Care Worker and am on-call at the Salvation Army Homeless Shelter; work with a Christian Ministry called CASA that helps homeless addicts seeking progressive recovery from drug addiction; am in the process of building up a political-educational party called Humane Liberation Party; and am a Monitor for the Aztlannet_News Yahoo Group, among other social humane activities.
Join Up!
The Sacramento Area Latino Community Events Yahoo Group is really needed now more than ever here in Sacra in order to utilize Internet Power for our gente!
Website and Email Address=
I have a straight up radical global overview in these reactionary xenophobic times inside the United States and believe we are already living under a mature authoritarian fascism.

We Latinos are responsible for our own community education and our own liberation in harmony with all people’s liberation struggles worldwide.

We need to build up a community-based infrastructure; relate to the people’s basic needs; and build up working coalitions with our natural allies.
FYI: There is a progressive Sacra website that has been around for a long time related to progressive events on the local level that you may want to check out:
Friday, Oct 27, 4 - 6pm, Join Cindy Sheehan in protesting Bush & his wars. 16th & Broadway, Sac. 916-444-8314;
With all that has happened this year in terms of immigrant rights, our marches and rallies, and other continued efforts, it is time to ratchet up our collective struggles for Latino Liberation. We are not asleep. We are wide awake and need to wake up all our gente!

Liberation Now!!!

Our Marathon ~ By Peta-de-Aztlan

Our recovery is like running a real-life marathon
A long-distance journey all the way to the Finish Line
When we win sober without dope, booze or fine wine.
Living a good life just as it comes one day at a time.

In our marathon are pits, traps and land mines.
Dark demons, devious devils and assorted sneaky swine
Memories of madness can yank us back out on slimy snacks
Haunting ghosts that remind us of dope fiend tracks.

Each step forward brings us closer to where we aim to be.
Sometimes we might slip up and land hard on our knees.
So keep prayed up to Almighty God with honest heartfelt pleas.
Know it is not always wise to do as we damn well please.

Take your time, pace your self and don’t go all out at full speed.
Slow down to a steady trot in a moment of need.
We can just walk it, staying on out feet, one step at a time.
Sometimes we might even crawl, but keep going through it all!

Our fellow runners may die out from exhaustion
Go down in depression, give up and quit with a weak heart.
Understand this breathing in-and-out business is a real life art!
Keep your eyes on the prize and keep your head up to the skies!

Keep in conscious contact with our Loving Great Creator
Enjoy the beauty on the journey in this real-life theater!
When you pass the Finish Line, look forward to the future feeling fine.
Then, look back and encourage newcomers behind you coming up the line.

Make steady progress moving on one day and night at a time.
As long as it works for your own program it don’t have to rhyme.
Stay with the real winners, cut loose spiraling down spinners.
And treasure good health as your greatest wealth!

    Richard> Response: Remember who your enemies are...

    Domingo @1:46 AM
    Gracias Richard ~
    Oue enemies are the mega-global corporations, the fascist state power structure, the fascist-minded military machine and all their fanatical flunkeys, then, as Carlos hinted at there is the enemy within aka: agent provacateurs.
    I was hoping to get more of a response and feedback about my essay itself and wish others in this group would present their personal psycho-social ideas about the concept of Latino LIberation either through an essay, a blog post or a well thought out Email.
    The main idea in my essay:
    Analysis on Latino Liberation Inside the United States: was:
    "... the old Chicano Movement will have to shed its old skin of reactionary nationalism and come to embrace scientific democratic socialism, along with the peoples of Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba and other liberated territories of Latin America in opposition to the Amerikan Empire."
    We need to unite with other Latinos throughout the USA, in Mexico, Central America and South America as Latinos.
    Plus, we need to come together with our natural allies who are other oppressed suffering peoples from different cultural backgrounds. We should not let our own prejudices and any remnants of racism keep us divided.
    I hope someday soon some of us connected with Aztlannet can get together as a junta in for our own Aztlannet-type conference, to exchange ideas, work on some plans and get to know each other face to face.
    I want to see a new Latino Libeation Movement built up in harmony with all other progressive liberation movements.

    Life upon Mother Earth, its interlocked global economy and even Internet Power has altered the dynamics and mechanics between peoples. New situations call for new analyses.
    I first got involved in the 'movimiento' in my teens and know I am getting to be a real viejo, though, I am still in pretty good physical shape and pretty well preserved. I am not a veerano as I know the war rages on!!!
    I remember the ol' War on Poverty days when President Johnson was in the White House, the volatile Vietnam War days and how the government would throw some crumbs to us like hungry dogs and some of fools fell for it and fought each other over 'crumbs from the banquet table', including Blacks and Browns here in Sacramento.
    In real life, on the street level, sometimes friends become enemies and enemies become friends. It ain't all cut and dry in a gift-wrapped package.
    A lot of life has to do with how we handle ourselves in our relations with others. Then, there are critical class enemies whose class interests are inherently opposed to ous own survival-based class interests.
    Distinctions must be made and contradictions must be truly analyzed and resolved in terms of clearly-defined distinctions between antagonic and non-antagonistic contradictions.

    Creating unity really has to do with getting to know our companeros in real life, how they think, how they operate under pressure, in the thick of battle or in a crisis situation. It is one thing to type from the comfort of my command post here with a loaded Remington shotgun in the corner and being out in the streets in a real firefight with the local neo-Gestapo.
    Ideally, we get to know who are local comapneros are by coming together, by communicating together and by really working together on common plans, programs and projects.
    Since we are both in Sacramenot we ought to get together soon for some cafe and compare mental notes.
    Keep in mind that we are still going through the after-shocks and dust settling from the big immigrant rights marches and rallies this year. It showed us the great power we have and our far greater potential. We have barely tapped the top.
    Nonetheless, protracted social liberation movements are mobilized, staged and manufactured by vanguad leadership, trained cadres and masses of people, not by automatic reflexes or sudden spurts of inspiration.
    Fortunately, we are not starting from scratch. In a collective sense, we have a great wealth of experience already paid for by the blood, sweat and tears of many others in earlier times.
    Sometimes once loyal partisans get burned out, bought off, filtered away or out-sourced out of the struggles before us.

    It is the natural ebb and flow of liberation struggles, coming closer to our calculations at time and at other times receding further away in a constant state of flux.
    Our struggle goes on, the movement moves forward and we must be armed with clarity, courage and conviction along with an undying faith in our people in conjunction with our vanguard elements involved in building up infrastructure.
    Remember, the anatomy of a power base of operations involves three elements:
    1. Personality
    2. Organization
    3. Capital

    Carlos ~ Are you the expert who says what can be what?
    Damn, did I forget to get your permission? Do I have to have a Dr.
    from Amerika's educational system before my name first? The power to define ourselves as we see fit is a key part of self-determination.
    I want to utilize a common term that many of us gente' can relate to easily instead of always having to use all these many terms for La Raza Cosmica. The term 'Latinos' works for me.
    I will use continue to use the term Latinos and for me in a given context it can include indigenous people. Was there or was there not a Latino Congress?
    This is an example of the Old Vanguard Traditional Thinking that holds us back from achieving greater unity. How many of the Brailian people are indigenous? Where did the term indigenous come from? Indians are really from India. Keep growing in your own consciousness. ~ Peta
    P.S. I did not use the term 'moniker'. Don't tear stuff out of context.

    Carlos Pelayo <> wrote:
    If you choose to use Latino as an all inclusive moniker, you are wrong in including Chicanos and the Indigenous Peoples. The other monikers describe the peoples and their politics who still cling to their Mother Conquerer, Spain, England, France, Netherlands and Portugal. These "latinos" et al are not looking towards liberation but accomadation with all their collaborating schemes both political and cultural, cultural nationalists. Do not insult the indigenous peoples who are actively resisiting the european colonizers for over 514 years, not since 1821, 1848 or any other neocolonial revolts that have resulted in more of the same. The narrow nationalists and cultural nationalists who have defined Chicanismo and the Chicano Movementhave done so in way to disguise their defection from the peoples and legitimisize their politic of accomadation/assimilation.

    Analysis on Latino Liberation Inside the United States: By Peter S. Lopez


    October 18, 2006

    The term ‘Latino

    I utilize the general term ‘Latinos’ as an inclusive term to refer to the diversity of all of La Raza Cosmica: Chicanos, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Latin Americans and all indigenous native peoples of the Americas including Central America and Latin America of non-European extraction.

    We require a common term to describe ourselves as a distinct people despite our great diversity as a unique beautiful people of Mother Earth. Let our scholarly Chicano pundits argue about this terminology until doomsday, as we continue to die in the hot deserts, wide fields and blind alleys of Amerika!

    2006 ~ Ano of the Grande Marcha

    The year 2006 has been an historic year for Latinos inside the United States. For us, the big events that happened earlier this year have been the great immigrant rights marches and rallies witnessed by millions of people worldwide in support of Mexican immigrants with the proclamation of the humane ideal that immigrant rights are ultimately humane rights!

    The once proposed racist-xenophobic Sensenbrenner Bill and many other historical events and elements converged together and triggered this spiritual awakening and ‘woke up’ a lot of us, especially Mexican immigrants but also many Chicano elders. Repression breeds resistance!

    Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006: The Meaning of the May Day Marches and the Future of the Immigrant Rights Movement

    The New Immigrant Rights Movement

    As of this hump day, there has been a long lull in relation to the immigrant rights movement, but traditional leadership should have expected this social phenomena. There has not been a lot of the basic essential groundwork that still needs to be done, which is, basic community education, mass mobilization and organizational building. We have not done our own homework over the last few decades and are getting poor grades as a result. If you plant no seeds nothing will grow. As you sow, so shall ye reap!

    Naturally and historically, the majority of immigrants in the U.S.A. are from old Mexico. The U.S. southwest is the homeland of Mexicans and still called ‘Aztlan’ and considered our land by many of us. We have been here, we will always be there and we are not all going back to what is now the territory of Mexico. Some say we here inside the continental U.S.A. are already in Occupied Mexico, though, any idea of a separate Chicano Nation is insane and only further confuses the real set of ‘issues in question’ before us today.

    Many so-called ‘illegal immigrants’ inside the United States are just trying to live real quiet anonymous lives, continue to work hard here for the exploiters, aim to keep their blood families together and simply want to be left alone to live out their lives in relative peace. The only sane solution to the endless ‘immigration debate’ is General Amnesty for the odd-12 million immigrants who are already here now inside the continental United States.

    Many neo-Minutemen White racists with their ol’ KKK mentality, plagued with phony patriotism, have fake amnesia as they pretend to forget that indigenous peoples are the original owners of these ancient lands, not White Europeans. Red-white and blue flag-draped phony American patriots should not mistake an ancient people’s kindness for weakness, especially if those racist Americans fail to practice the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance clause “… with liberty and justice for all!”

    The Unfinished Mexican Revolution

    Stupidity is the orphan stepchild of ignorance. Mexicans are not stupid and never have been stupid, as some stupid White racists and xenophobic haters may still believe. In fact, Mexicans will identify with a violent armed people’s revolution in memory of Emiliano Zapata and Pancho Villa for their liberation before participating in mere spontaneous counter-productive street riots. Armed revolution is in our blood.

    Link= The Mexican Revolution of 1910

    Mexico is still a neo-colony of U.S. imperialism. Many Mexicans seek to escape the misery of poverty in Mexico by immigrating to the United States.

    Recall: the future Presidency of Lopez Obrador was stolen by the illegitimate Mexican government with U.S. corporate backing and the original Mexican revolution is still unfinished business.

    Wednesday, September 6th, 2006: Mexico Court Declares Calderon Winner of Disputed Election, Lopez Obrador Vows to Form Parallel Gov't

    Keep in mind that the Bush rogue regime is itself an illegitimate government stolen by fraud, deception and corporate deciders in 2000 and 2004. President Bush and his Oval Office Cabal are international war criminals themselves, should be arrested and prosecuted in an international court of law and they are still waging an unjust losing war in Iraq!

    Ultimately, it is up to our Mexican brothers and sisters in and from Mexico to continue to come out with their own independent vanguard leadership, along with our ready help, able assistance and global networking. Each of us have our own plans and priorities, though, we should have shared humane principles.

    The Defunct Chicano Movement

    The old Chicano Movement is a dead horse and needs to be revitalized in a completely new way if it is to ever have any real relevancy again. It had key major failures and failed to reach out and fully incorporate into its struggles Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans and other Latinos. Many Mexicans do not trust the old guard of the Chicano Movement to look after their special interests and rightly so. Many of our local youth do not even call themselves Chicanos or even Chicano-Americans. They identify with hip-hop more than Chicanismo!

    In the late 60’s and early 70’s, a lot of the initial revolutionary thrust of the Chicano Movement was defused and sidetracked by narrow-minded Chicano cultural nationalism. Colorful art murals, cultural trinkets and other nationalist trappings cannot create a real nation that has its territorial integrity respected. Some Chicanos made a good hustle of living off the Movimiento; others infiltrated into the pig system and then forgot they had done so!

    True power is the dual capacity to define and transform connected reality. The climax of real power is ownership and control of the land and all the institution thereon, along with a fully equipped standing army!

    Latino Liberation Now!

    Chicanos inside the United States are in a key geographical situation to help spread the growth and development of new forms of struggles and new battlefronts arm-in-arm with other positive hard-core warriors of all colors and backgrounds. However, the old Chicano Movement will have to shed its old skin of reactionary nationalism and come to embrace scientific democratic socialism, along with the peoples of Venezuela, Bolivia, Cuba and other liberated territories of Latin America in opposition to the Amerikan Empire.

    President Chavez's Speech to the United Nations: Friday, Sep 16, 2005

    We as Chicanos need to think in terms of ‘Latino Liberation’ in conjunction with the humane liberation of all peoples worldwide. Armed with courage, we must all take the great leap forward to worldwide socialism as the only real alternative political-economic system to corporate capitalism, no matter what Amerikan Fascist propaganda tells you!

    Main Entry: so·cial·ism
    Pronunciation: 'sO-sh&-"li-z&m
    Function: noun
    1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods
    2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state
    3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done

    For us Latinos, the whole unjust Amerikan occupation of Iraq has not escaped our attention or the obvious fact that many people of Iraq are brown-skinned as we are. We are aware of the rants and raves of the Bush Regime in its bogus war on terror. The fascist war on terror is a hidden weapon of mass distraction from our own urgent need to build up a strong Latino Liberation Movement inside the United States in harmony with all progressive social liberation movements.

    Our White comrades do not face the same racism, repression and surface profiling that we do as non-White peoples in a White dominated urban society. Fortunately, our common interests are far greater than any surface differences.

    Many of us Latinos live daily in real terror of deportation in certain social settings. We can make the relevant connections and inter-connections. Can you prove you are an American citizen with the paperwork on you? Do you know where your Birth Certificate is? Do you look like a Mexican immigrant?

    General Elections: November 7th, 2006

    Many progressive activists are looking forward to the mid-term elections on November 7th, 2006 in the hopes of voters electing positive and progressive candidates into office to really change the composition of the U.S. Congress that will also be receptive to our goals for social democracy and justice. But be sure not to hold your breath. We usually get merely a new batch of crooks and regular ‘politics’ is another word for corruption to many. Our politics must be the politics of relating to the people’s basic survival needs and the people’s politics of liberation!

    The U.S. liberal-radical Left Wing vanguard elements are still divided and too busy attacking each other, either overtly or covertly, to attack our real historic enemies. Once again, there is no one relevant revolutionary vanguard party inside the United States nor I suspect will there ever be one.

    If there is to be a strong unity based upon common principles among the people’s vanguard elements it will be a mixed assortment of different functional organizations, political parties and interest groups. There is no one party line to follow, no fixed hierarchy to obey, and no regimented movement. This has positive and negative aspects for us. We live in the most diverse, high-tech and complicated society in all of human history. We are in the Third Millennium! In reflection, our minds and analyses must also be a little complex as all social issues are intrinsically connected in connected reality. No one or nothing exists in isolation in-and-of-itself.

    We cannot go it alone, but we can do it all together with all liberated people with liberated souls and minds. We need to settle our petty ideological differences, come together on the basis of a common humane rights agenda, work with all progressive elements from all sectors of the general population and continue doing local community education and voter registration work wherever we are at in Aztlan.

    We should follow humane liberation principles, not mortal men. If there is no leading vanguard group in your area, start one!

    Independent Third Parties

    Independent third parties, such as, the Green Party, Peace & Freedom, La Raza Unida, and the new Party for Socialism and Liberation, can have great positive roles to play in electoral politics in national, state and local elections, but they have never dominated Amerikan electoral politics. A throwaway protest vote or a non-vote is not an example of real participation. It is asinine apathy and apathy can be a silent killer.

    Some critical social issues can be emphasized by third parties that are largely ignored or dismissed by the traditional duo-party system, however, the connected reality is that third parties running in public elections have a far better chance of actually winning political campaigns on the local level than on state and national levels. In all comes down to factual analyses of actual conditions, then, timely appropriate responses to those conditions.

    All our work should be done in harmonious conjunction with community - oriented mass education and mass mobilization that addresses a diversity of social issues while always keeping uppermost in mind the people's basic survival interests: food, clothing, shelter, medical care and quality education.

    Inside the USA today, corporate politics and corporate business interests ultimately govern Amerikan electoral politics. It is always structurally and institutionally dominated by the duo-parties of the Democratic Party and the Republican Party like a two-headed monster. We are always living under the mega-corporate controlled global economy protected by the Fascist Amerikan Empire.

    Electoral politics and campaigns can be utilized as talking points for reaching out to people, raising consciousness and building power bases of operation.

    Ultimately, it is up to the American people to wake up in order to make real fundamental social change and structural transformation, not established political parties alone. It is a truism that we end up with the system of government we deserve based upon our personal participation as world citizens or not.

    True proportional democracy

    Unless the masses of U.S. citizens take a real active role in community education, voter registration and electoral politics on a mass basis and mass level there can be no true proportional democracy to truly represent the diversity of the millions of people in present-day Amerikan society.

    A true proportional democracy within which all the people participate would be far better than the present broken system of representative democracy we have now. A true democracy would need to be worldwide and governed by the majority of the general population on a worldwide basis with the highest respect for the rights of all minorities and all those affected by our dream democracy. There can be no safe real democracy for anyone when fascist tyranny exists anywhere and always threatens its continued existence.

    So-called democracy inside the United States for so-called poor minorities or people of color results in continued fascist tyranny and racist domination by the White majority. White racist ideology still remains one of the major obstacles to significant social unity inside the United States, let alone the evilness of present-day U.S. foreign policy in Third World ‘hot spots' and the regional wars instigated by the Bush rogue regime.

    We should always seek common denominators that unite us, not apparent differences that divide us. Unity based upon humane principles is the key!
    Think global, work global and face the HERE AND NOW of connected reality before you!.
