Brown Berets plan anti-Minuteman protest in Tucson (w/ corrected day)

Members of the Brown Berets de Aztlan, a hardline Chicano activist group, are planning a demonstration at 9 a.m. Friday, Sept. 25, outside Pima County Superior Court. The demonstration is a response to the May 30 murders of Raul Flores and his nine-year-old daughter Brisenia, allegedly masterminded by border-security activist Shawna Forde.
Discussion of the possible demonstration has been bubbling in Minuteman circles for weeks, and I first heard from one of the demonstration organizers a week or so ago, inquiring about court dates for the defendants in the murder. Here’s how they explain their reason for the demonstration:
1. To protest hate Groups and the sponsorship of Minutemen organization by politicians.
2. To see that the political support of such HATE GROUPS be held accountable.
3. To demand that politicians stop funding and put an end to the Minutemen organizations as well as the hate groups they recruit from.
4. To DEMAND JUSTICE for Raul Flores and his daughter Brisenia and all the other victims brutalized and murdered by Minutemen.
It could be an interesting scene that day. I imagine there will be counter-protesters, police, etc. etc. Next thing you know, a flag could be burning. But which flag???
Noe Raul Flores was a big time drug dealer, seems no mention of that! I am truly sorry his precious little child was killed (seriously), but who put that child in harms way? samD
