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 Chicanos, Mexicanos, Central Americans, and other immigrant and minority communities for military service.
