the face of the intensifying and vicious attacks coming down on our gente we
must get organized to defend ourselves, our families, and our land.
Crime Bill, Prop 187, and the Contract with America are the newest forms of
the same U.S. war that has historically come down on our gente for the last
500 years. These laws deny us education, health care, and basic democratic rights
while filling our streets with police and migra. These laws are about securing
more stolen resources and creating more jobs for white people by imprisoning
- $8.8 billion
for 100,000 new police
- $1.2 billion
for more migra to attack Raza
- $9.7 billion
for new prisons
- $1.8 billion
for states who incarcerate Raza
say ya basta to our victimization, the division of our people by a false
border, and the questioning of our right to residency in our homeland, and to
a gringo settler system which must - at all costs - keep us ignorant, divided,
powerless and exploitable. If you also believe that enough is enough, then join
us in building a movement to work in our own interests and defend our gente
against the vicious genocidal attacks we face each day.
Start an NCMC
chapters have autonomy in name and focus. We are united in agreement to the
NCMC points of unity and principled
demands, as well as the code of conduct.
The NCMC has a suggested structure, but all is determined by local needs and
resources. Many groups work on issues which affect our communities and our people,
but the NCMC is the only national formation committed to building a nationwide
network of Raza struggling for revolutionary self-determination and justice.
The issues the NCMC is committed to affect the lives of Chicanos everywhere
but are also symptoms of colonial domination. Now is the time to act.
How to get started
