Brown Berets Represent at 7th Annual Youth and Power
Immigration Behind Enemy Lines
The Watsonville Brown Berets presented the 7th annual Youth & Power Conference consisting of music, activism, organizing tables, art, dance, culture, speakers, a lowrider bike show, the Hip-Hop Chess Federation, free food and more. This year's conference took place at the Vet’s Hall in Watsonville on August 14th. The evenings musicians included Immortal Technique, Guerrilla Queenz w/ Cihuatl Ce, Redención and Doba Doza. The featured speaker was Karina Garcia, an anti-minuteman activist and member of the Columbia University Chicano Caucus.

Brown Berets chose, “Immigration Behind Enemy Lines,” to build strong consciousness and action in order to counter the extremely oppressive and violent relationship between the prison industrial complex and the Migra (ICE). Youth and Power's slogan, "EDUCATE!!! ACTIVATE!!! LIBERATE!!" rang true as artists, speakers, and participants educated each other regarding the revolutionary possibilities in the face of this relationship between prisons and the Migra. imc_photo.gif Read more and view photos || Flyer
