San Diego Lowriders Go Global
By Alberto López Pulido
On March 8, 2015 – San Diego
Lowriders will participate in the
Classic Legends Lowrider and
Kustom Car Show in Port Messe
Nagoya, Japan.
Billed as one of the largest indoor
Car Show venue in the world,
Amigos San Diego Car Club, the
oldest active Lowrider Car Club in
San Diego County, in addition to
The Worldwide Tribal Clique and
Ranflista is proud to send a delegation of close to thirty San Diego representatives.
“For us, it is an honor to be included as part of this venue, and we
look forward to exploring and understanding the reasons as to the at-
traction to our culture,” say Amigos’
President Ray Ulloa. A 1936
Dodge by the name of Cimarrón
owned by Club member Rafael
Palacios, and a Harley Davidson
Deluxe (“El Revolucionario”)
owned by Rick Raa Alvarez of
Ranflista will accompany the group
representing the San Diego
Lowrider Community.
Over the years, Lowriding has
become an International sensation.
This uniquely Chicano art form has
now been introduced into many
places around the world. “Forty
years ago, we would have never
dreamt of something like this happening says Amigos’ co-founder
Rigo Reyes. For several years now,
the Car Culture of Japan has slowly

San Diegans will march in
favor of Ayotzinapa
By Pablo J. Sáinz
Although the small town of Ayotzinapa is thousands of miles away from
San Diego, residents of the county
must be aware and support the cause
of the 43 dissapeared Mexican students’ families, according to a local
activist.
“San Diego should cares about
Ayotzinapa,” said Elena Marques,
co-organizer and co-coordinator of
the Comité Acción Ayotzinapa, which
is having a march in solidarity with
Ayotzinapa on Saturday, February
28th, starting at 1 p.m. in front of the
Mexican Consulate, in Little Italy, and
ending at the NBC news building in
downtown San Diego.
La Prensa San Diego talked to
Marques to find out more about what
the committee is trying to accomplish
with this march, which is part of a
series of events the activists have
been organizing in San Diego. In
December they had an art show honoring the 43 students.
La Prensa San Diego: Why
should San Diegans care about
Ayotzinapa, and what’s happening in
Mexico in general?
Elena Marques: San Diego
should care about Ayotzinapa, and
what’s happening in Mexico for a
couple of reasons. For one, it is so
related to the struggles here against
police violence we are seeing in the
news. Shooting first, asking second,
with Eric Garner, Mike Brown, the
countless men, women, and children,
unjustly killed by the system, with killers walking free.
Unfortunately this here in the
States is only a tiny glimpse into police terror and violence in Mexico that
has been coinciding for decades parallel with ours, but to a much greater
extreme. It needs to be understood
that America’s “War on Drugs” has
really aided the militarization of Mexican police as well. It is our responsibility as conscious humans to stand
up and ask our government to intervene at some point. We are bordering nations, many people of San Diego having family on both sides, and
our responsibility as mothers, fathers,
students, sons, daughters, to stand up
for those like us who live in a country where those who are supposed
to protect you, are those who are
most feared and dangerous.
The people of Mexico are demanding transparency in what happened
in Iguala that day, and in countless
other similar tragedies, as we are
demanding transparency of death by
police here.
LPS: In general, how has the public in San Diego, Mexican or otherwise, responded to Ayotzinapa?
Marques: The people who are
aware of the situation, are very concerned, angry, and want answers and
justice, which ties into the main purpose of this march: To demand mainstream media to properly cover this
situation. Everyone who sees or hears
about the situation in Ayotzinapa is
appalled to hear such a grotesque
large scale human rights violation, and
if there was more mainstream coverage, there is no doubt there would
(See Ayotzinapa, pg. 9)
adopted Lowriding as part of their
own identity, and it is now considered one of Japan’s most popular
sports.
For Bobby Ruiz from Tribal, both
the technical skills and quality of the
Japanese Lowrider has improved
over the years and is now on par with
Lowriders imagined and built in the
United States, including San Diego
and the borderlands. As Oryu Oreo,
the main promoter of the Japanese
Car Show affirms,” We have been
lowriding for thirty years in Japan and
now know how to build lowrider
with our own style.”
Amigos Car Club agreed to participate in order to share and interact with Lowrider enthusiast and
educate them as to the origins and
history of this tradition.
As Reyes affirms, “Through this
invitation, we will interact and learn
from each other, with the understanding that for us, lowriders is not
a sport or a fad, it is a way of life –
it is who we truly are.”
For Amigos Car Club and the entire San Diego Delegation, this represents the first of many opportunities to collaborate with others outside of the United States with the
objective of educating others about
Chicana and Chicano cultures and
with a reminder that “low-n-slow”
is the way to go, regardless of
where you are from and where you
live in the world!

San Diego
marchará a
favor de
Ayotzinapa
Por Pablo J. Sáinz
Aunque el pequeño pueblo
de Ayotzinapa está a miles de
millas de distancia de San
Diego, los residentes del
condado deben ser
conscientes y apoyar la
causa de los familiares de los
43 estudiantes mexicanos
desaparecidos, según una
activista local.
”San Diego debe

dijo Elena Marques, coorganizadora y cocoordinadora del Comité

La Prensa San Diego:
¿Por qué debería importarles
a los residentes de San Diego
lo que ocurre en Ayotzinapa,
y lo que está sucediendo en
México en general?
Elena Marques: San
Diego debe preocuparse por
Ayotzinapa, y todo lo que
está pasando en México por
un par de razones. Por un
lado, está tan relacionado con
las luchas aquí en contra de
la violencia policial que
estamos viendo en las
noticias. Disparar primero,
preguntar después, con Eric
Garner, Mike Brown, los
innumerables hombres,
mujeres y niños, que
murieron injustamente por el
sistema, con los asesinos
caminando libremente.
Lamentablemente esta aquí
en los Estados es sólo una
pequeña visión de terror
policial y la violencia en
México que ha sido durante
décadas coincidiendo
paralelamente con la nuestra,
pero en mucho mayor
extremo. Hay que entender
que la “Guerra contra las

The Missing Faces of February
By Kent Paterson
FRONTERA NORTESUR
Martha Cecilia Gomez was
visibly shaken as she pleaded
for the whereabouts of her
daughter. According to the
Mexican mother, her 16-yearold daughter Paola Yaneth
Alvarez left the family home
in the central Mexican state of
Aguascalientes the morning of
February 1 to go shopping for
pork rinds and never returned.
“We don’t know anything
about her,” Gomez told FNS.
“As the mother of a family, I
ask people who might have seen
something to come forward, but
nobody has” Along with relatives of other missing or murdered persons, Paola’s family
members staged a march earlier this month through the state
capital of Aguascalientes to
press for answers.
The other presumed and confirmed victims spotlighted in the
demonstration included Sergio
de Lara Quezada, 28, disappeared on August 30, 2011;
Maria del Cristal Acevedo
Gomez, 29, missing since July
26, 2014; and Cecilia Martinez
Mota, murdered in 2014.
In the days following the
march, stickers affixed to
structures lining one of Aguascalientes’ main streets asked
passerby, “Where is Cristal
Acevedo?”
Civil society groups such as
the Feminist Collective and the
Social and Gender Violence
Observatory also participated
in a protest designed to call
public attention to disappearances. “This is a grave problem nationwide,” Mariana
Avila, Observatory coordinator,
told reporters.
While Aguascalientes is not
known to have experienced the
same level of disappearances
of Mexican states like Chihuahua or Guerrero, the issue is
of growing concern to Avila
and other human rights activists.
According to Avila’s group,
data released by the Aguascalientes attorney general’s
office (PGJE) in September
2014 reported the disappearance of 239 women and 135
men. Yet the same office earlier stated that 200 people in
total were missing from 2007
to 2014, according to Observatory members.
In an effort to get a more
accurate picture of the local
problem, the non-governmental organization is in the process of requesting updated information.
In an interview with FNS,
Avila recognized that the PGJE
has committed to harmonizing
the state’s investigative procedures with national ones by
May 2015. But she criticized
the PGJE for shortcomings in
following protocols like the
Amber and Alba alert systems
designed to speed up police
actions for endangered minors
and adults, respectively.
“To the authorities they are
simply missing persons,” Avila
contended.
Paola Alvarez’s relatives
questioned policing methods,
too. Similar to the friends and
family of Erika Cueto (see article link below) in Puerto
Vallarta, Jalisco, Martha
Gomez recounted how her
family was bounced between
three separate law enforcement offices-one in the state
of Jalisco and two in Aguascalientes.
Paola disappeared in Lumbreras Cienguilla, a rural community not far from the state
line with Jalisco. Questioning
priorities, Gomez said authorities focused on Paola’s life
before February 1, instead of
the time after her disappearance. Law enforcement officials from Jalisco have since
contacted the family by phone
while their counterparts in
Aguascalientes have asked the
mother if she has learned anything more about her daughter,
Gomez said.
Elia Patricia Lopez, Martha
Gomez’s cousin, added that
police suspected Paola “went
with the boyfriend.” Gomez,
however, insisted that her
daughter did not have a boyfriend at the moment of her
disappearance. On her walk to
and from the store Paola would
have passed by a circus that
was initially the focus of a police probe, which did not bear
any results, the two women
said. The circus has since
moved on, they added.
“There is no serious line of
investigation to indicate where
she is,” Lopez lamented.
According to an Amber
Alert for Paola now posted
online, personnel of the store
where the missing teen was
headed reported seeing her.
Sergio Acevedo, father of
Cristal Acevedo, has spent
months anguishing over the
fate of his daughter, who disappeared last summer while
leaving work at a department
store. The missing woman left
behind a 12-year-old daughter.
“’The earth swallowed her
up’,” is how Acevedo remembered Aguascalientes Attorney
General Felipe Munoz summarizing what might have happened to his daughter. Reached
by phone, Acevedo expressed
frustration at the course of the
police investigation. In less than
one year, the officials in charge
of his daughter’s case have
been changed three times, he
said.
“They don’t have anything
concrete. They pass the ball
from one to the next,” Acevedo
told FNS. Unlike the rewards
offered by the federal attorney
general’s office for information
on some missing persons, no
compensation is being offered
for tips regarding Cristal and
many other missing persons in
Aguascalientes, he said.
“If I had the money, I’d offer a reward, but I can’t,”
Acevedo said. “I’m a person
with scarce resources.”
On Tuesday, February 24,
Acevedo and a small group of
supporters and relatives of
other disappeared persons conducted another protest in
Aguascalientes’ main plaza,
where state officials were
present. No official bothered
to give any answers to the
group, Acevedo later com-
plained.
Lopez contended that public indifference is a big obstacle
to encountering Paola and
other disappeared persons, because many people tend to
shrug off the matter if it does
not directly concern them.
In Jalisco, on the borderline
of Aguascalientes, another
family also protested in the
streets this month demanding
answers. Curiously, 13-yearold Maria Guadalupe Vazquez
disappeared on February 2, the
day after Paola vanished. The
school girl reportedly went
missing after leaving home to
go to an Internet café in her
home town of Encarnacion de
Diaz, or La Chona as it is popularly known.
In some ways, the Vazquez
case has proceeded in a manner similar to the disappearances of Paola Alvarez and
Erika Cueto. According to
press accounts, 72 hours
passed before the Jalisco state
prosecutor’s office initiated a
formal investigation of Maria’s
disappearance even though an
Amber Alert for the girl could
have been issued almost immediately because of her age. In
La Chona, a boyfriend is also
cast as a possible suspect.
According to Lopez, Paola’s
family was also told to wait 72
hours before filing a complaint
that would activate an investigation, even though once again,
the person in question is a minor.
Rumors that between two
and four bodies were recovered
from a local reservoir during a
police search for Maria Vazquez
were publicly refuted by La
Chona’s public safety chief.
“It’s a lie, German Lopez
Serrano told the Aguascalientes
edition of La Jornada. “It is totally peaceful here. Nothing is
going on.”
But in the disappearances of
Maria Vazquez and Paola
Alvarez, political geography
could be an important starting
point.
Several sources described
La Chona as a strategic point
in an organized crime corridor,
as well as the gateway to Los
Altos de Jalisco- another hotbed of illicit activity. The death
of a longtime regional capo
three years ago triggered violent competition for the “plaza,”
which showed signs of subsiding more recently when one
individual seemed to have
gained the upper hand, said a
source who spoke off the
record to FNS.
Last June, El Heraldo de
Aguascalientes and other
Mexican media reported on the
arrests of three men connected
to the disappearance and execution of eight people who
were found secretly buried in
La Chona.
La Chona’s public safety
problems follow a national pattern of state border regions resembling no-man’s lands, vividly illustrated by troubles along
the frontiers of Nayarit and
Jalisco, Guerrero and Michoacan and Coahuila and Durango,
among other places. The political divisions can mean the
predominance of one criminal
group over another, and potentially hamper and confuse law
enforcement agencies with differing jurisdictions.
Avila ventured that a regional human trafficking network could be behind some of
the women’s disappearances in

L.A. Times Photographer Documents New
‘Harvest of Shame’ in Mexico
Don Barletti (fourth from right) with CSUSM MEChA students, and Dr. Fredi Avalos
(second from left) who organized the event.
By Mark R. Day
When Los Angeles Times
photojournalist Don Barletti
lectures on his work, there is a
deep passion in his voice, and
he pays careful attention to the
details in each of his photographs.
Bartletti spoke to a packed
audience of students and faculty on Feb. 24 at Cal State San
Marcos’ Student Union. The
theme was a three part series
on child labor in Mexico called
“Product of Mexico” that he
co-produced last December
with L.A. Times journalist Richard Marosi.
Barletti’s lecture was presented as part of CSUSM’s
College of Arts, Humanities
and Social Sciences’ “Engage
in Diverse Dialogue Initiative.”
“The purpose of our series
was to show how the produce
we consume in the U.S. is
picked—how the migrant
workers live,” said Barletti.
The workers told us that representatives from Wallmart,
Whole Foods and the Olive
Garden came to the farms and
green houses. But they never
visited the workers.”
Bartletti spoke of his dedication to his craft and the tough,
sometimes dangerous experiences he has had covering immigration, drug trafficking and
other hot button topics that both
bind together as well as divide
Mexico and the U.S.
Bartletti gew up in Vista,
Calif. After graduating from
Palomar College he worked on
several North County newspapers, including the Vista Press.
On one occasion he was invited to photograph children at
an orphanage in Tecate.
“Afterwards I got a call
that several of the kids were
immediately put up for adoption after they saw their pictures,” he said. I realized that
my photography could have an
impact. That changed everything.”
For the Times series
Bartletti and Marosi traveled
to nine states in Mexico. In his
talk, Bartletti focused on 12year-old Alejandrina Castillo,
her mother and baby brother.
In photo montages and two
videos, he explained how he
was able to gain the confidence
of the workers and take poignant photos of their everyday
lives and those of other migrant
children.
These people, said Bartletti,
enjoy none of the benefits of
workers in industrialized countries like the United States.
“They have no access to food,
rest periods, water, child care
or toilet facilities in the fields,”
he said.
A few of Barletti’s photos
of the Castillo family are quite
poignant. Alejandrina stands on
the bed of a pickup, looking
back longingly at a school girl
in uniform with her backpack.
“I want to go back to school,”
she said. “I only made it to the
third grade.”
In
another
photo,
Alejandrina works a furrow
picking chile peppers. Within
sight is her baby brother sleeping in a tomato crate, his
mother working nearby. In
other photos, there are children
who have made their own
toys—a basketball hoop fashioned from a tomato bucket
and a kite made form a plastic
garbage bag.
Bartlett’s aerial photos
show the stunning immensity
of Mexicos’ agribusiness complexes in Sinaloa, with miles of
rows of state of the art green
houses, interspersed with corrugated shacks for the workers. They are crowded 10 to a
room without air conditioning
in the tropical heat. The camps
are surrounded by barb wire.
“You wouldn’t know this
was the 21 st century,” he
added. “It was more like the
Middle Ages.”
According to Barletti’s and
Marosi’s series, more than
100,000 children under 14 pick
crops for pay in Mexico,
roughly seven to 12 dollars a
day, even though it is illegal to
employ children under 15 years
of age.
Another sequence of photos follows Alejandrina and
other migrants as they make
their way south to a new harvest in Guanajuato. Shots of
trucks loaded beyond capacity
with workers are reminiscent
of the Joad family’s travels to
California in John Steinbeck’s
Grapes of Wrath.
Following his lecture, students and faculty members
queried Barletti about the difficulties of interviewing workers and getting past security
guards on the large industrial
farms.
“We had to make sure to get
permission when we needed to,
and to leave when asked,” he
said. ‘’Any kind of misrepresentation could have jeopardized the whole series. The
growers have teams of lawyers. One has to be very careful.”
Reactions to the lecture
were positive. Caroline TheissArd of the North County Immigration Task Force said that
people are disconnected from
food, who grows it and picks
it. “They fail to see why people
immigrate to this country. Seeing his beautiful photos – you
get a real sense of how brutal
life is—how low the pay. Then
you can make the connection.”
Dr. Fredi Avalos, who introduced Barletti, said she wanted
the students to understand the
political, ethnic, religious, economic and sometimes gritty
realities of globalization. “We
want them to consider how the
choices we make on a daily
basis, from the clothes we
wear to the food we eat have
rippling consequences, most of
which are invisible to us.”
The city of Chula Vista and the San Diego Urban Corps are
undertaking a new project called “Green Street Chula Vista.”
This project will help 10 low-income disabled and/or senior
(age 62+) Chula Vista residents who own their homes with
home improvements AT NO CHARGE. Improvements can
include things like handicapped access, weather stripping, security doors and screens, smoke alarms, water heater insulation, window replacement, exterior pest control, low-flow showers and toilets, replacement of electrical outlets, cleaning mold
and mildew, trash hauling, and window and door replacement.
In order to qualify for assistance through Green Street Chula
Vista, the homeowner must be either handicapped or at least
62 years old, and must be able to prove he or she is low income. Preference will be given to residents of western Chula
Vista. Low-income senior homeowners who are also disabled
are ESPECIALLY encouraged to apply.

Alliance San Diego’s Christian Ramirez standing shoulder to shoulder with community
members and allies to support President Obama’s executive action to keep immigrant
families together.
By Pablo J. Sáinz
A non-profit organization
that offers a variety of social
services in some of San Diego’s
underserved communities has
launched its annual individual
giving campaign.
The “I Have a Voice” campaign is Alliance San Diego’s
fundraiser where the organization invites San Diegans to become partners in change by
making a contribution.
“Contributions received
through the ‘I Have a Voice’
campaign help us create a San
Diego where all people can
achieve their full potential in an
environment of harmony, safety, equality, and justice,” said
Matt Yagyagan, development
manager for Alliance San Diego, an organization focused on
building coalitions to promote
social justice and social change
through community programs
and services.
Yagyagan said that the funds
will help cover the costs of programs “which aim to create a
San Diego where all people can
achieve their full potential.”
He said that a vast part of
those benefited through these
programs include the Latino
population in San Diego.
In education, Alliance San
Diego is working closely with
school districts with Latino
majorities to “ensure all students are prepared for the 21st
century,” Yagyagan said.
He added that the organization has already moved San
Diego Unified (which is around
50 percent Latino) and Sweetwater Union (with close to 80
percent Latino) to “change
their policies to provide and
career prep courses to all students, beginning with the
graduating Class of 2016.”
The development director
also said that Alliance San Diego wants to “ensure all border residents are treated with
dignity and respect.”
Yagyagan pointed out that
Alliance San Diego is working
to hold the Border Patrol accountable to the same professional standards as other law
enforcement agencies.
“As a result of our national
campaign, the Border Patrol
has committed to take steps to
be more transparent and accountable to their actions in
border communities, which are
majority Latino,” he said.
Another major campaign
Alliance San Diego has pursued is encouraging people to
vote, ensuring “that a majority
of voters in all neighborhoods
are using their voices,” Yagyagan said.
“Together, we have already
mobilized 50,000 voters in the
City of San Diego from lowvoting precincts to support ballot measures like Prop. 30 and
Prop. 47, which restore funding to public education and
other essential community services.”
Alliance San Diego uses all
funds towards social campaigns. For example, $1,000
cover the cost of an entire
policy advocacy campaign,
while $250 funds leadership
training. With only $100 the
organization is able to hold a
community meeting.
“We are building coalitions,
creating solutions, preparing
community leaders, and mobilizing people to advocate for
change in San Diego,” Yagyagan said. We invite you to
join us and mobilize for change
by making a tax-deductible
donation today.”
Alliance San Diego was
founded in 2007 as the Equality Alliance of San Diego
County.
“Alliance San Diego has focused on reaching out to individuals in under-served communities and communities of
color to inspire and educate
them about their rights and responsibilities as citizens–and
the power for change they possess that begins with voting,”
reads the organization’s history
on its website.
From immigration to education in the community, your
contribution to Alliance San
Diego will be money well
spent. With life-long human
and immigrant rights activist
Christian Ramirez and educator and SDSU professor Isidro
Ortiz on board, Alliance San
Diego is trully representative
of the community.

Campaña ayuda a organización
comunitaria a ayudar a otros
Por Pablo J. Sáinz
Una organización sin fines
de lucro que ofrece una variedad de servicios sociales en
algunas de las comunidades
más pobres de San Diego ha
lanzado su campaña anual de
recaudación de fondos.
La campaña I Have a Voice
es la recaudación de fondos de
Alliance San Diego en la que
la organización invita a los
sandieguinos a convertirse en
socios en lograr un cambio al
hacer una contribución.
“Las contribuciones recibidas a través de la campaña I
Have a Voice nos ayudan a
crear un San Diego donde todas
las personas pueden lograr su
potencial en un ambiente de
armonía, seguridad, igualdad y
justicia”, dijo Matt Yagyagan,
director de desarrollo de Alliance San Diego, una organización enfocada en crear
coaliciones que promuevan la
justicia social y el cambio social a través de programas y
servicios comunitarios.
Yagyagan dijo que los fondos ayudarán a cubrir los
costos de programas “que
tratan de crear un San Diego
donde todos puedan alcanzar
su máximo potencial”.
Dijo que una vasta parte de
los beneficiados a través de los
programas incluyen a la población latina de San Diego.
En la educación, Alliance
San Diego está trabajando
cercanamente con distritos
escolares con mayorías latinas
para “asegurarnos que todos
los estudiantes estén preparados para el siglo 21”, dijo
Yagyagan.
Añadió que la organización
ya ha logrado que San Diego
Unified (que tiene un 50 por
ciento de estudiantes latinos)
y Sweetwater Union (que tiene
casi 80 por ciento de latinos)
“cambiarán sus políticas para
proveer cursos que preparan
para carreras a todos los
estudiantes, comenzando con
la clase que se graduará en el
2016”.
El director de desarrollo
también dijo que Alliance San
Diego quiere “asegurarse que
todos los residentes de la
frontera sean tratados con
dignidad y respeto”.
Yagyagan indicó que Alliance San Diego está trabajando para que la Patrulla
Fronteriza sea responsable de
sus actos y los mismos estándares profesionales que
otras agencias policiacas.
“Como resultado de nuestra
campaña nacional, la Patrulla
Fronteriza se ha comprometido
a tomar pasos para ser más
transparente y responsable de
sus acciones en comunidades
fronterizas, que tienen mayorías latinas”, dijo.
Alliance San Diego usa
todos los fondos para campañas sociales. Por ejemplo,
mil dólares cubren el costo de
una campaña de abogacía
política, mientras que $250
cubren un entrenamiento de
liderazgo. Con solo $100 la
organización puede tener una
junta comunitaria.
“Estamos construyendo
coaliciones, creando soluciones, preparando líderes
comunitarios y moviendo a la
gente a busca un cambio en
San Diego”, dijo Yagyagan.
Alliance San Diego fue

Federal Courts Sponsor
Civics Contest for Students
in Greater San Diego Area
A civics contest organized
by the federal courts offers
high school students in the
greater San Diego area, including Imperial County, a chance
to win cash prizes and meet
with some of the nation’s preeminent jurists and legal practitioners.
“Our Constitution: What the
American Dream Means to
Me” is an essay and video
competition open to sophomores, juniors and seniors in
public, private and parochial
schools or to home-schooled
students of equivalent status.
Individual students can compete in the essay contest, while
individuals and teams of up to
three students can enter the
video contest. Complete information is available at http://
www.ce9.uscourts.gov/
civicscontest.
“Civics education really begins with the Constitution,” said
the Honorable Janis L.
Sammartino, a U.S. district
judge in San Diego who chairs
the Courts and Community
Committee. “The contest will
uniquely add to the student’s
knowledge and understanding
of the basis of our democracy.”
Cash prizes will be awarded
to three winners in each category of the competition. Firstplace winners will receive
$2,000, second-place $1,000
and third-place $500. The prize
money is being donated by law
firms and individual attorneys.
It’s fast. It’s easy. And, it’s
free. We’re talking about
getting your taxes done.
ThroughApril 15, the County
will be helping low-income
families and individuals file their
income tax returns and increase
the amount they get back.
More than 500 volunteers
will help prepare and file taxes
electronically at about 75 sites
across the region. However,
you have to be low income to
qualify for the free service.
The tax preparation services
are part of the annual Earned
Income Tax Credit (EITC)
campaign, which the County
Health and Human Services
Agency (HHSA) and its partner organizations launched in
2003. The goal is to help residents take advantage of EITC,
the federal government’s largest assistance program to support low-income families.
This filing season, you could
have your taxes prepared for
you, prepare them yourself with
assistance from a volunteer or
do them on your own by visiting www.MyFreeTaxes.com.
To receive free services, all
you have to do is call 2-1-1 to
make an appointment at a site
near you.
ETIC is a federal program
established in 1975. In San Diego County, the preparation
service is offered through a
partnership among the United
Way of San Diego County, the
IRS, AARP, local colleges and
universities and other organizations. The IRS estimates that
between 20 and 25 percent of
eligible individuals do not claim
their EITC each year.
Individuals and families who
worked in 2014 and earned less
than $52,000 could qualify for
as much as $6,143 in EITC tax
credit. Residents must file a
tax return to be eligible.
Last year, EITC campaign
volunteers filed nearly 49,000
federal and state returns,
bringing about $10.4 million in
EITC dollars to local working
families and individuals.

“Biliteracy is truly a gift”: CABE conference 2015 Southwestern College Strengthens
Cross-border Connections
By Pablo J. Sáinz
California’s largest association of bilingual educators will
hold its annual conference in
San Diego, and organizers
want Latino parents to know
there’s a lot for them during the
event.
The California Association
for Bilingual Education
(CABE) conference will take
place from March 4th through
the 7th at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center, where some 4,000 educators and parents will meet to
discuss and learn from each
other about the latest trends
and programs in bilingual education.
This year’s conference
marks the organization’s 40th
anniversary as an advocate for
English learners and multilingualism in California’s schools.
“CABE’s legacy is one of
commitment, dedication, perseverance, relentless advocacy,
teaching, leading, and transforming—all in the name of the
children, families, and educators we represent and serve,”
said Francisca Sánchez, CABE
board president. “For 40 years,
we have been immersed in this
important work. We have rejoiced in our victories and determined not to be defeated by
our struggles, but rather to
embrace them as evidence of
the critical role that we each
must play in safeguarding the
multilingual dreams of our students and families.”
Those families will be present during the conference
through a series of workshops
and presentations for parents,
including the Rosalia Salinas
Parent Resource Center,
where parents can visit during
the event to learn more about
programs available in the local
schools.
“There a lot of parent workshops about the Common Core
State Standards, and how parents can support their children
with the new standards and the
resources that are available to
parents,” said Emma Sánchez,
Chula Vista Elementary School
District executive director for
Language Acquisition Development Services and Support.
“There are also workshops on
how to promote and improve
parent engagement at their
schools.
Emma Sánchez said that it
is also important for Latino parents to understand that being
bilingual is a positive, not a
negative in their children’s
lives.
“Biliteracy is truly a gift,”
she said. “Being able to speak
more than one language creates many opportunities.”
Anthony Millican, director
of communications for Chula
Vista schools, and media relations coordinator for this year’s
CABE conference, said that
many school districts have
funds available to cover the
cost of attending the conference for parents.
He said parents can reach
out to their school principal to
find out if their school is participating.
Among the conference
highlights are the presentation
of CABE 2015 Administrator
of the Year, Teacher of the
Year, Parent of the Year, and
Para Educator of the Year
awards.
Lourdes Araiza, a parent
leader in one of Chula Vista
schools parent groups, said she
and other Chula Vista parents
will be speaking about the benefits of being bilingual.
“We want other Latino parents to encourage their children
to learn Spanish, and to learn
about all the opportunities that
they will have as bilingual professionals in the future,” she
said.

FEBRUARY 27, 2015
LA PRENSA SAN DIEGO
One more opinion on the Chargers’ stadium!
T
he talk of the town is all about
the San Diego Chargers. Will
they move? Will there be a
new stadium? How will a new
stadium be paid for? Everyone seems to
have an opinion and so we decided to add
our opinion to the conversation.
No matter what, the Chargers will always be our team. We will enjoy them
today and tomorrow in the same form
and fashion as we have usually watched
them - from the comfort of our couch,
with the barbeque chicken cooking, the
beer and soda on ice, in the company of
our friends and family.
That is the problem with the discussion
on the Charger’s football stadium. As a
family, we have never been able to afford the luxury of attending a game at
Qualcomm Stadium. The day runs $400
- $500 for a family of 4!
The stadium only holds 70,000 seats
and for a county where over 3 million
people live, 70,000 seats only account
for sliver of folks in the big picture. We
don’t know for sure, but our best guess
is at least half of those 3 million folks
are not even football fans.
The 70,000 fans that do attend the
games are, in general, the same fans at
all 8 games. A new stadium is a big deal
for them, they want that stadium in San
Diego so they can continue their enjoyment of watching a game live with the
camaraderie that goes along with a stadium full of fans yelling for their team.
For the rest of us, Qualcomm Stadium
looks great on the big screen!
Depending on who you listen to, you
can get completely opposite points of
views on the value of a pro football team
to a city. There are economists who say
that the economic impact to a city like
San Diego is minimal. At the other end
of the spectrum you will have city leaders that state the economic value to a city
is invaluable. We are pretty certain that
somewhere in-between these two diverse opinions lays the truth. One thing
we know for sure is that when the Chargers win on Sunday we feel pretty good
on Monday and when the team makes the
playoffs it seems that the whole city is
pretty excited!
The problem boils down to how and
who will pay for a new stadium. For the
past thirteen years, city leaders and the
Chargers owners haven’t figured out the
answer to that question. Now, in the next
three months, they are supposed to solve
this problem?! In looking to solve this
question of how to pay for a new stadium,
we keep hearing about the “success” of
the Padre’s stadium deal. Herein lies the
other problem.
The Padre deal was good for downtown
San Diego interests and it was very, very
good for John Moores the then owner
of the Padres. The Padres deal was not
so good for the taxpayer: infrastructure
suffered, the poor for whom the Redevelopment funds were earmarked suffered when those funds went to build the
stadium, and the stadium has hastened the
gentrification of Barrio Logan.
The taxpayers built a ballpark for the
Padres and the city gave Moores extra
property around the stadium and on Otay
Mesa. It was a sweet deal for Moores
who greatly benefitted from the generosity of the city leaders. Later when
Moores sold the San Diego Padres for
almost a billion dollars did Moores pay
back the city for at least a portion of the
outstanding debt? Not that we know of….
Charger’ owner Dean Spanos has probably looked to the deal Moores received
and was probably thinking, “Why can’t
we get a deal like that?”
The Padre deal burnt out the taxpayer
and they vowed not to make the same mistake twice. That is probably why whenever a poll is taken asking the question
will you support a new stadium with
higher taxes the resounding answer is
NO!
If a deal is done to build a new stadium,
or a re-build of Qualcomm Stadium,
which we think is the right thing to do, it
will have to be without new taxes! City
leaders throughout the county and corporate captains need to come up with a creative way to finance a plan to keep the
Chargers in San Diego. Short of this we
will continue to support the Los Angeles
Chargers from the comfort of our couch!

Asimismo, muchos de nosotros que llegamos
a este país, valoramos los beneficios que nos
brinda el sistema político en los diversos niveles
de gobierno. Los que somos norteamericanos
naturalizados podemos votar y movilizarnos
políticamente. Y los que no son, por lo menos
tienen “voz”, misma que está protegida por la
Constitución.
Durante el movimiento anti-inmigrante que
azotó a la ciudad de Costa Mesa, muchos
líderes comunitarios –latinos y no-latinos— nos
movilizamos contra aquellos elementos racistas
neonazis que empezaron a apoderarse paulatinamente de las instituciones políticas del
gobierno municipal. Nos movilizamos porque
vimos un peligro inminente y quisimos
resguardar las instituciones de este país; y no,
como argumenta Giuliani, porque la rechazamos.
Así, Rudolph Giuliani y la vanguardia del Tea
Party, encajan claramente dentro de la ideología
jacobina radical republicana. Dicen ser los
estadounidenses más patrióticos del país y
critican a quienes piensan lo contrario.
Lo cierto es que son los más despiadados y
los menos tolerantes de las libertades ciudadanas. Son igualitos que los jacobinos.
La corriente Jacobina, que nació durante la
Revolución Francesa, se distinguió por su
postura ultra-revolucionaria, ultra-patriótica y
ultra-republicana. En ese periodo, los jacobinos
eran los radicales de la izquierda, los enemigos
del clero, los antagonistas de las castas sociales
y los adversarios del rey y la aristocracia.
Si hoy tuviéramos la desdicha de levantarlos
de la tumba y tuviéramos que verlos movilizar
políticamente en la sociedad, los jacobinos,
irónicamente, no estarían enarbolando la
bandera radical de la izquierda. Estos iconoclastas del republicanismo estarían hostigando
al gobierno y creando caos en la comunidad,
tal como lo han venido haciendo los miembros
del Tea Party.
Al igual que el ex alcalde de New York
Rudolph Giuliani, los jacobinos estarían
cuestionando el patriotismo de los líderes del
país sin razón alguna.
“Yo sé que es una cosa terrible lo que voy a
decir, pero yo creo que el Presidente no quiere
a nuestro país. [Obama] no te quiere, ni
tampoco me quiere. No fue criado como nos
criaron [nuestros padres]. No fue criado con
amor a este país”, manifestó.
El presidente Barack Obama, de acuerdo a
la definición patriótica de Giuliani, es un
mercenario político; trabaja en el puesto más
importante del mundo por dinero, para hacer
daño a este país y no por fidelidad a su patria.
Ante los ojos de Giuliani, el patriotismo está
pintado de color blanco y negro, no existe partes
grises en su entorno político. Bien amas a tu
patria o bien la rechazas. Ese fue la ideología
pura de los jacobinos a fines del Siglo XVIII.
Hoy, hay un sin número de intelectuales Humberto Caspa, Ph.D., es profesor e
norteamericanos que se dedican a escribir libros investigador de Economics On The Move.

It’s Ain’t Screwy Voting Districts Killing Latino Inmigración: El bulevar de los sueños rotos

special supervisorial election; Umberg, of
course, lost handily to Janet Nguyen and another Vietnamese candidate in an election that
launched the Little Saigon political super-machine. Espinoza, meanwhile, ran for the Fourth
Supervisorial District seat in 2010, losing handily—not just because no one outside of La
Habra knows her, but because two other prominent Democrats were on the ballot.
The only Latinos to move up the electoral
ranks to Sacramento or the Board of Supervisors over the past 20 years, then, have been
Correa and Solorio—and this is probably the
time to mention that the two were hardly popular among Latinos due to their moderate politics, which meant voters never felt any loyalty
to them and thus doomed them to their recent
losses. Instead of grooming young progressive
Latinos to eventually replace them, the Dems
went gabacho: former Anaheim mayor Tom
Daly replaced Solorio in 2012, beating out
SanTana councilmember Michele Martinez and
current OC Labor Federation head Julio Perez.
Being groomed to replace Daly one day? Anaheim councilmember Jordan Brandman. And
being groomed to take Brandman’s place in the
OC Dem hierarchy? Current Centralia School
District trustee Connor Traut, a Chapman
undergrad who might be the only person in human history to ever move from Ladera Ranch
to Buena Park and think that a wise decision.
Meanwhile, the Democrat Party’s rising
Latino stars? No one.
Indeed, when former Anaheim City School
Trustee (and 2012 OC Scariest People honoree) Jose Moreno registered as a Democrat
last year to run for Anaheim city council, in a
year where district elections (an issue that
Moreno heavily advocated for) were on the
ballot, his efforts got torpedoed not just by
Brandman (who endorsed his pendeja Republican colleagues Kris Murray and Gail Eastman)
but also by Correa, who did the same as
Brandman. A strong Democratic Party leadership would’ve whipped Brandman and Correa
into shape (as the OC GOP does to great effect); instead, Party chair Henry Vandemeir
presided over a disastrous Election Day and a
bleak future in Central County for his party,
one that Latinos have little part in (SanTana
councilmember Vince Sarmiento? Meh.)
Democratic Party apologists can whine and
blame the Republicans all they want, but the
inconvenient facts are there: The Democratic
Party of Orange County has failed Latinos
wholesale.
Why hasn’t the Democratic Party of Orange
County created a pipeline of Latino candidates?
The only explanation is laziness—they assume
that Latinos will always vote for a Latino candidate, and that they could recycle Correa and
Solorio forever. Thank God such a pandering,
patronizing strategy came to bite the Dems in
the culo via voter apathy and led to the party’s
current existential crisis. And by the way, I’m
not the only lefty Latino casting a conspiratorial view against the Democratic Party’s treatment of Latinos in California. The big California political story in this young year is the virtual crowning of attorney general Kamala Harris
to take Senator Barbara Boxer’s seat, a move
that has angered Latino Democrats who want
to push one of their own for a shot (most are
rallying around former Los Angeles Mayor
Antonio Villaraigosa, but I’d prefer Congressman Xavier Becerra, an outspoken progressive with none of the personal baggage
Villaraigosa carries).
Come on, naranjeros: it’s high time ustedes
break free from the shackles of the Democratic
Party and register Green or Peace and Freedom or Libertarian or—hell—bring back the
Raza Unida Party. Scare those pinche Dems
into finally respecting us. In the meanwhile, any
voting rights lawsuit that doesn’t name the
Democratic Party of Orange County as a defendant will be as effective as trying to catch a
rat with a picture of a cat.
Orange County, California — Over the past
two weeks, much has been written about how
former supervisor/state senator/state
assemblymember/Lou Sheldon bitch Lou
Correa lost the First Supervisorial District race
to former Garden Grove councilmember Andrew Do. Coming a couple of months after a
disastrous 2014 Election Day that saw Sharon
Quirk-Silva lose her State Senate race to Young
Kim and Jose Solorio lose handily to Janet
Nguyen in the race for Correa’s old State Senate seat, and it’s been a bitter pill for Democrats but especially OC Latinos, who now find
themselves without a wab representative in Sacramento or on the Board of Supervisors for the
first time since 1998.
The most popular angle taken by local media
and pundits is that Correa and Solorio should’ve
won handily because the district they ran in
have a lot of Mexicans in it, but those damn
Vietnamese voters in Little Saigon just vote too
darn much! For Correa supporters, the main
culprit is a 2011 gerrymandering scheme by the
all-Republican Board of Supervisors at the time
(don’t accuse me of exaggerating—no less a
conservative lion than then-Supervisor John
Moorlach called it “gerrymandering”) that diluted Latino voting power in the First by bringing in more Little Saigon voters—you know,
those voters who vote too much. Both Latino
yaktivists and Democratic Party officials are
now mumbling about a possible lawsuit using
California’s Voting Rights Act to correct the
First’s alleged wrong and ensure Latino wins
in the future. That’s fine and all, but that stance
will let off the hook the biggest reason why
OC electoral gains in higher office for Latinos
have now been effectively rolled back two decades: the pendejos running the Democratic
Party of Orange County.
Let’s go back to the heady days of 1996, when
Loretta Sanchez pulled off her legendary upset over Bob Dornan, Nativo Lopez was raising righteous hell, the vendido Gaddi Vasquez
was embarrassed out of electoral politics forever, and Correa narrowly lost to thenAssemblymember Jim Morrissey. In those postProposition 187 days, Latinos were the future
for the Democratic Party, and officials up and
down the state began grooming candidates in
earnest. It paid off in OC for the next four years,
with the election of Lopez to the SanTana Unified School District board of trustees, Correa
to the Assembly, and the 2000 elections of Rose
Espinoza to the La Habra City Council and Jose
Solorio and Claudia Alvarez to the SanTana
council.
Dark Lord Curt Pringle and Nativo Lopez—
why did you make that deal with the devil again,
Nativo?l With those five candidates (and the
election of Richard Chavez to the Anaheim City
Council in 2002), it seemed that Latino political
power was strong enough to ensure that North
County would turn bluer than indigo. But instead of building on this core, Democratic Party
leaders let this advantage disintegrate by allowing intra-party sniping and promoting
gabacho politicians instead of Latinos. Lopez
was recalled in 2003, not just because of his
hubris (like cutting a deal with Curt Pringle
where Pringle supported Lopez’s rallying around
Gigante, while Lopez and other Latino leaders
allowed Pringle to run for Anaheim mayor—
guess who won that one?) but also through the
help of SanTana Mayor Miguel Pulido—a
Democrat who felt threatened by Lopez’s populist bent. When Correa won his first supervisorial race, Alvarez was expected to win as his
heir apparent—yet Democratic leadership
brought back a blast from the past, Tom
Umberg, to beat her in the 2004 primary (in
retrospect, this was a good thing, as Alvarez is
an evil, vindictive harpy).
When Correa sought to replace termed-out
state senator Joe Dunn in 2006, it was Democratic Party leaders who asked Umberg to run
and asked Correa to stand down; Correa beat
him down. Those same Dum leaders rallied Orginally published in the OC Weekly (http:/

Mientras se discuten demandas, fallos,
apelaciones, reveses legales y probabilidades en
torno al futuro de las bloqueadas acciones
ejecutivas migratorias, la otra historia es el efecto
sobre los millones de inmigrantes que estaban
listos para solicitar el amparo y quedaron con
sus esperanzas rotas a horas de que se abriera
el periodo de inscripción. Fue hasta cruel, pues
el juez federal Andrew Hanen pudo haber fallado
días antes para bloquear las acciones ejecutivas,
como se anticipaba que hiciera, pero actuó la
noche antes de que la Acción Diferida para los
Llegados en la Infancia (DACA ampliado)
entrara en vigor el 18 de febrero.
Los reportes en los medios de comunicación,
particularmente en español, captan la parte
humana de esta historia, aquella que siempre
se pierde en las reacciones y los cálculos
políticos y politiqueros que suelen dominar el
discurso migratorio. Lo he escuchado de los
propios inmigrantes con los que uno se topa en
la calle, el metro, la tienda, que se habrían
beneficiado o que tienen algún pariente o
conocido listo para inscribirse en el DACA
ampliado o en la Acción Diferida para Padres
de Ciudadanos y Residentes Permanentes
(DAPA), que entraba en vigor en mayo y que
también fue bloqueada.
Duele también porque uno ha visto lo que
ese amparo de la deportación y ese permiso de
trabajo pueden obrar en la vida de una persona. Son innumerables las historias de
DREAMers que se beneficiaron del DACA
2012 y que pueden seguir haciéndolo. La
documentación supone posibilidades, desde la
más básicas como poder adquirir licencia de
conducir y un vehículo para su transporte, hasta
poder ejercer la profesión que estudiaron, pero
que nunca habían podido desempeñar por la
falta de documentos. Personas empleadas
suponen recursos que benefician a los negocios
y en consecuencia a las comunidades donde
viven. Suponen también ingresos para el fisco
mediante la regularización del pago de
impuestos. Suponen, en resumen, una estabilidad económica y emocional que beneficia
al individuo, a sus familias, a la comunidad y
finalmente al país.
Lamentablemente el sentido común no rige
hablan como si los 11 millones de indocumentados hubieran arribado ayer aunque llevan
una, dos, casi tres décadas aquí; o como si
existieran en un vacío. Tienen hijos ciudadanos
estadounidenses, familiares ciudadanos,
votantes y potenciales votantes, si es que
quieren considerar que al frenar soluciones, así
sean temporales, también afectan a los
electores que después buscan.
Más aún, este tira y afloja judicial, y el otro
tira y afloja en el Congreso por el presupuesto
del Departamento de Seguridad Nacional
(DHS) y los intentos republicanos de condicionar su aprobación a que se frenen las
acciones ejecutivas, sólo demuestran poca
valentía para resolver el problema. Los
republicanos creen que evadiendo, bloqueando
y postergando cualquier solución harán
desaparecer a esos millones de indocumentados
junto con sus hijos ciudadanos. Si dedicaran el
mismo tiempo y esfuerzo a buscar una salida
legislativa, pero una que resuelva el tema de
los indocumentados, ya se habría conseguido.
Hace mucho tiempo.
Pero ahora estamos sumidos en una batalla
legal que si sólo dependiera de la constitucionalidad de las acciones ejecutivas, se habría
resuelto. Hanen no ha fallado en torno a la
constitucionalidad de dichas acciones. Las
bloqueó con argumentos de procedimiento.
Expertos en leyes coinciden en la solidez del
poder ejecutivo del presidente Barack Obama
para ejercer discreción al priorizar las
deportaciones, que fue lo que hizo al girar las
órdenes ejecutivas. El gobierno busca congelar
el bloqueo de Hanen a las acciones ejecutivas
para comenzar a implementar el programa en
tanto procede el proceso de apelaciones.
La batalla legal arrecia. Para jueces,
abogados, funcionarios y políticos, el tiempo no
es problema. Para los millones de inmigrantes
que siguen en el limbo, la espera supone sueños
interrumpidos y el temor a la deportación,
aunque en teoría no sean prioridad para las
autoridades. Otra demora más en su paso por
el bulevar de los sueños rotos.

¡ASK A MEXICAN!
By Gustavo Arellano
Dear Mexican: As I’ve been doing a
lot more business in the city of Santa
Ana (one of the most-Mexican cities in
the U.S.), I’ve realized that a shitload of
Mexicans are the Fox News-type
conservative, yacking out the same kind
of shit you hear at a Glenn Beck
conference except for immigration
(probably because Tío Juan has no
papers). But I’ve also met a ton of antiimmigrant Latinos who look like they
just hopped the border themselves. In
fact, I hear more crazy shit from Latinos
in Santa Ana about Mexicans than from
gabachos in Laguna or Newport
(probably because the only time they
see them is when they are getting some
kind of manual labor service). I know
Mexico is inherently conservative and
racist, and I wasn’t surprised to
encounter conservative fanaticism from
Latinos, but hearing such pendejadas so
consistently has been a bit shocking. Is
there any scholarly evidence backing up
my observations, or am I just being
paraoico!
Your Former Student Julio
Dear Wab: Refry this: A 2014 Pew
Hispanic Center survey showed that 11
percent of Latinos surveyed identified as
libertarian—almost as many as gabachos!
As I’ve been writing since you were in high
school, Mexican immigrants from the
countryside and their descendents (the
majority of Mexicans) are natural
libertarians, what with their up-by-thebootstraps mentality, skepticism toward
government of any kind, hatred of the police
and love of liberty (let us play our
tamborazo in the backyard and raise
chickens in peace!)—but they also bring
with them social mores from the days of
having sex through a hole in the sheet. It’s
those pesky chilangos and Chicano Studies
yaktivists like myself who push our cousins
and parents toward modernity, toward them
accepting the primo in the closet and
explaining why words like joto and puto
just aren’t cool anymore. Needless to say,
the struggle es real…
I would just like
an answer. As I’m
sure you are well
aware, there isn’t
much letup on the
whole
“immigration”
debate. And, whitey (being as white as
he can) continues whining about how
“the Mexicans took my job” and “nonEnglish speaking this” and “I can’t
understand Spanish” that. So, how do I
get people to knock it off? I’m just your
average everyday white guy, which
nobody really listens to anymore.
Anyhoo, whitey complains too much
about his job being given away, but it’s
been shown on television, radio, and
other media that a lot of people can’t
handle, let alone keep up with a lot of
the jobs that the migrant workers and
immigrants get. That, and Mexico has
such a diverse and rich culture that
everyone just tosses aside (except for
the ever-popular Taco Hell). Spanish is
also one of the easier languages to
learn, and is considered to be one of the
Romance languages.
So my question, again: how do I get
whitey to stop being so, well, white?
How can I open up the doors to a more
peaceful community between our
people? I know as just one loner, I can’t
do much, but the Buddha said, “If only
one will listen.” So please: help me help
others end the pointless feuding, and
realize we’re all in this together.
America can’t just say one thing and
enforce another (although we’re really
good at it). Thank you for your time.
Just a Whitey
Dear Gabacho: How do you stop
gabachos from being gabachos? Make ‘em
Mexicans—and we’re working on that, one
taco and gabachita at a time.

San Diego marchará a favor de Ayotzinapa Barrera Taurina…rumors, half-truths, and

intervenir en algún momento.
Somos naciones vecinas,
muchas personas de San
Diego tienen familia en
ambos lados, y nuestra
responsabilidad como
madres, padres, estudiantes,
hijos, hijas, es de defender a
aquellos que viven en un país
donde los que se supone
están para protegerlos, son
los más temidos y peligrosos.
El pueblo de México está
exigiendo transparencia en lo
que sucedió en Iguala ese
día, y en un sinnúmero de
otras tragedias similares,
como estamos exigiendo la
transparencia de la muerte a
manos de policías en Estados
Unidos.
LPS: En general, ¿cómo ha
respondido la gente de San
Diego a Ayotzinapa?
Marques: Las personas
que son conscientes de la
situación, están muy
preocupados, enojados y
quieren respuestas y justicia.
Ese es el principal objetivo de
esta marcha: exigir que los
principales medios de
comunicación cubran
adecuadamente esta
situación. Todo el que ve o
escucha acerca de la
situación en Ayotzinapa está
consternado al oír tal
violación grotesca de los
derechos humanos a gran
escala, y si hubiera cobertura
más amplia, no hay duda que
más personas tomarían
acción sobre este tema.
LPS: ¿Cuál ha sido la
respuesta del consulado
mexicano local hacia las
protestas, marchas en el
pasado? El consulado no
respondió a una solicitud de
comentarios antes del cierre
de edición.
Marques: Solo estaremos
en el Consulado de México
como un lugar importante
para empezar, y para que
ellos vean una gran multitud
reunida en el nombre de la
justicia de Ayotzinapa. Sin
embargo, las personas en el
consulado solo están
manejando el papeleo y los
trámites, no estaremos allí
para molestarlos y una vez
que nos hallamos reunido
estaremos marchando hacia
adelante a la NBC, que es
donde se hará el ruido y las
demandas reales en el
nombre de los estudiantes y
sus familias.
LPS: ¿Por qué termina la
marcha frente a NBC?
Marques: La petición
constante de las familias ha
sido “por favor no nos
olviden” y que sigan el
ejemplo de las familias a las
que guían nuestras acciones
y esta es nuestra respuesta.
Ayotzinapa ha sido un
destello rápido en las noticias
aquí, que no tardó en llegar
con una cobertura mínima
pero luego se desvaneció.
El propósito de detenernos
frente a NBC es poner
Ayotzinapa de nuevo en las
noticias. Estamos exigiendo
la cobertura de la situación
en Ayotzinapa, porque el
mundo necesita saber que
esto no ha desaparecido. En
muchos sentidos, es cada vez
más difícil y queremos que el
mundo recuerde la lucha real
solo ha comenzado y está
lejos de terminar.
Si no van a cubrirlo por su
propia voluntad, entonces
estamos como una multitud
masiva frente a ese edificio
hasta que se nos entreviste
sobre Ayotzinapa y hemos
hecho todo lo posible para
conseguir la cobertura que se
merece.
LPS: ¿Cuánta gente
esperan en la marcha?
Marques: Es difícil de
decir, pero hemos conseguido
una respuesta muy positiva
en la solidaridad de todo el
condado. Estamos pidiendo a
todo el mundo de todas las
edades, nacionalidades,
fondos a marchar con
nosotros para mostrar apoyo
masivo mundial para
Ayotzinapa, porque esto no
es solo un problema de
México, este es un problema
global.
LPS: ¿Quién es Gustavo
Salgado y por qué su historia
es importante para ser
incluido en la marcha?
Marques: Gustavo
Salgado era un conocido
activista de derechos
humanos que había
organizado muchas
movilizaciones que exigían el
regreso seguro de los mismos
43 estudiantes que fue
secuestrado y luego
encontrado brutalmente
asesinado por el trabajo que
hizo. Su historia es
importante para que pueda
ser reconocido por lo que
hizo, que los asesinos del
gobierno pueden tratar de
silenciarlo en su trabajo por
los estudiantes, pero no
vamos a dejarlos. De la
misma manera no vamos a
permitir que Ayotzinapa sea
olvidado.
LPS: ¿Algo que quiera
agregar?
Marques: Me gustaría
reiterar que al final del día, la
base de este movimiento es
el apoyo y la solidaridad
humana, y esta marcha está
aquí para hacer eco de la
presencia de San Diego en la
lucha mundial por la justicia,
para encontrar a estos 43
estudiantes y apoyo para
estos padres. Es igual que a
nosotros nos gustaría que
alguien luchara por nuestras
propias madres y, sobre todo,
por nuestros propios hijos.
Debemos recordar que no
están buscando para iniciar
un partido político, sino que
están buscando a sus hijos y
que debe ser tratado de esa
manera.

The Missing Faces of February
(con’t from page 2)
and around Aguascalientes.
Previous cases of missing or
murdered women in the state
have been generally linked to
other forms of patriarchal violence and impunity, Avila said.
In contrast, the disappearances of men have been more
clearly connected to organized
crime- at least until now- she
said.
For Avila, Mexico’s obligations under human rights treaties and international law come
into play.
Avila cited the 1979 UN Convention for the Elimination of
All Forms of Discrimination
against Women (CEDAW)
and the Organization of American States’ 1994 Convention of
Belem do Para, international
accords that require agreeing
states including Mexico to prevent and punish violence
against women.
She recalled the 2009 Campo
Algodonero decision of the Inter-American Court of Human
Rights that found the Mexican
state accountable for human
rights violations in the murders
of three women in Ciudad
Juarez, in addition to the larger
pattern of violence against
women in the border city and
the state of Chihuahua.
“Mexico has not complied
with these,” Avila maintained.
“The international resolutions
don’t matter to the Mexican
government. We see that in the
case of Campo Algodonero.”
More than five years after
the Inter-American Court’s
verdict, the Mexican government has completed some parts
of the obligatory Campo
Algodonero sentence, but not
brought the real killers to justice or sanctioned officials responsible for an emblematic
miscarriage of justice replete
with the fabrication of tortured
scapegoats, the misidentification of victims and the harassment of victims’ relatives.
As in other Mexican states,
a local human rights commission operates in Aguascalientes. Until now, the official agency has not had a direct role in the disappearances
of either men or women. Avila
said her group has conducted
discussions with the commission, but “nothing concrete” has
emerged from the talks so far.
Eduardo Jesus Martin,
Aguascalientes Human Rights
Commission (CEDHA) president, told FNS that he invited
the Observatory to file a formal complaint regarding disappearances with the commission’s staff. Absent an investigation, the CEDHA circulates photos and personal information about disappeared
persons to the network of state
human rights commissions,
Martin said.
No family members of disappeared persons have approached the commission so
far, the CEDHA’s president
said. Martin added that he encountered the local family
members of two disappeared
persons during a recent meeting in Aguascalientes featuring
the presence of poet and national anti-violence activist
Javier Sicilia.
In the broader national and
international context, Avila
judged recent developments,
including the Pena Nieto administration’s quick criticisms of the
United Nations Committee on
Enforced Disappearances’ assessment this month of the
Mexican govern-ment’s actions
on forced disappearances as
below par, as auguring bad for
human rights in her country.
“It is an important symbolism because it says the international community doesn’t
matter when it comes to forced
disappearances,” Avila said.
“The government is saying it
is not responsible, it’s organized
crime. It’s a clear message that
they will not lose control and
accept recommendations. This
puts us in a defenseless position.”
With the support of others,
Cristal Acevedo’s father said
he will continue struggling and
not allow himself to get worn
down by desperation. The issue goes far beyond his family,
touching the lives of the family
members of the more than
22,000 people officially reported
as disappeared in Mexico, he
said.
“But I think it’s more, because many people don’t report them,” Sergio Acevedo
added. “It’s not only Cristal.
There are many children,
young people and old people
who are disappeared.”

By Mark Schwarz
The bulls from the Queretaro ranch of Los Encinos
have arrived at the corrals of
the Plaza Monumental de Playas, in Tijuana. The empresario, thoughtfully, has forwarded photos of the animals,
always a good sign where the
presentation of the bulls is concerned. The average weight of
the sextet is just over 515 kilos
(1,133 lbs), and they are very
well presented, indeed.
Los Encinos, property of
Eduardo Martinez Urquidi, is
one of the preferred ganaderias
of the moment in Mexico,
where its bulls have delivered
significant triumphs to toreros
such as Jose Tomas, Julian
Lopez, “El Juli”, Eulalio Lopez,
“El Zotoluco”, and Joselito
Adame, among others. The
encierro (set of 6) appears
healthy and completely reestablished after the nearly 1,600
mile trip early in the month.
The cartel, in honor of legendary taurine critic, media personality and Tijuana resident,
Valeriano Salceda, “Giraldes” is
comprised of Tijuana native
Alejandro Amaya, French superstar Sebastian Castella, and
the resurgent Mexican ace
Octavio Garcia, “El Payo”.
Tickets for the corrida, which
begins at 3:00pm, are specially
priced. “General” prices for
Sunny Side seats will be 200
pesos ($13 US) and 300 pesos
($21 US), however, instead of
the usual General seating in upper rows 21-40, these seats will
be in the lower, closer “Preferente” rows 11-20.
The corrida will be preceded
by an open air festival in the
bullring patio, featuring some
of Tijuana’s finest restaurateurs, wines and music.
Jose Tomas, the magisterial taurine high priest of
Galapagar, has announced his
“apparition” (re-apparition?) in
the Feria de San Marcos in
Aguascalientes, Mexico, on
Saturday, May 2, 2015. This is
the first announced corrida for
the elusive icon, and it occurs
5 years and 8 days after his
nearly fatal cornada by the
bull “Navegante” of the Santiago ranch of Pepe Garfias.
Secret talks (are there any
other kind when it comes to
Jose Tomas—consummate
master of the old edict “less is
more”?) with the empresario
Los Encinos bulls
of Aguascalientes had begun
last year but fell apart when
they were made public before
Tomas was comfortable with
the cartel, bulls, and honoraria,
rumored to have been nearly
600,000 Euros (approximately
$1,000,000). To date, no other
details of the cartel have been
announced, but Tomas’ modus
operandi in this latest stage of
a remarkable career, is well
known; he does not fancy leading off (preferring to confront
the 2nd and 5th bulls), and that
the “closer” on the cartel is
someone upon who he looks
favorably. As with all things
Tomas, stay tuned; announcements will be stingily released
as the date of the appearance
approaches…
Jose Antonio, “Morante
de la Puebla” has announced
that, for a second consecutive
year, he will NOT appear in
Sevilla’s Real Maestranza
plaza, for reasons which are
somewhat unclear, but revolve
around the—again—less than
responsive treatment of the
star attractions by the ages old
Pages family management
group, who controls the Plaza
outright.
It will be remembered that
last season none of the so
called G-5 stars—Morante,
El Juli, Alejandro Talavante,
Miguel Angel Perera or
Jose Maria Manzanares,
agreed to appear in the Maestranza as protest against the
empresario, which for years
has taken the lion’s share of
the gate, television and marketing royalties, shorting the actual protagonists—toreros and
bull breeders—by trading on
the undeniable importance, attraction and weighty history of
both the Maestranza and
Sevilla in collective taurine
imagination (“Quien es el
Mas Caro de Sevilla?”
Mundotoro.com, 2/19/15).
Last year’s April Fair—one
of the magnum events of the
taurine calendar—was a pitiful failure by both economic
and artistic standards, and
press releases from all parties
through the late fall and winter
signaled a thaw. Manzanares,
in fact, broke early from the
five and contracted at least
two, and perhaps 3, dates during the coming season. However, Talavante, apparently still
smarting for lack of “respectful treatment”, voluntarily excused himself from consideration, and to date, neither Juli
nor Perera have been contacted by Pages personnel.
Sources close to the Maestranza and the mayor of Sevilla
anonymously released an offer
to Morante for five corridas
spread out between the Spring
Fair and the San Miguel fair in
September, to which the matador—currently on tour in Mexico—responded with a curt denial of the offer and refusal to
appear in Sevilla in 2015, because—according to Mundotoro, of a lack of “seriousness”
regarding the possible cartel
combinations, which did not
meet the requirements of either
Morante or the Sevillan taurine
public. A second straight year
of minor figuras appearing in
what is arguably the world’s
most important bullring, at a
time of economic, cultural, and
political crises, can have only
adverse effects on the Fiesta
as a whole. There is still room
for blinking. Whose eyes should
we watch?
Club Tijuana ties 1-1 vs. Leones Negros in Copa MX
Xoloitzcuintles allow last minute goal in Group 3 First Leg match
GUADALAJARA– (Feb. 24,
2015)- Club Tijuana played to
a 1-1 draw against Leones
Negros in the first leg match
of the third and final series of
the group stage in the Copa
MX. The tie gives Club Tijuana
13 points at the top of the group
standings.
Henry Martin scored in the
85th minute his fourth goal of
the tournament to give the
Xoloitzcuintles the 1-0 lead.
Host Leones Negros found the
equalizer through Jahir Barraza
in stoppage time just a few seconds from the final whistle.
Ecuadorian striker Jose
Ayovi made his Xoloitzcuintles
debut coming out in the starting lineup for Club Tijuana and
playing 61 minutes. Ayovi was
an offseason acquisition but
suffered a foot injury during the
preseason that kept him out for
the last seven weeks. Ayovi
came out trying to make plays
using his speed up top. He sent
a curling shot from the top of
the box but had it slapped away
by Leones Negros goalkeeper
Ivan Vazquez.
A 21st minute curling shot
from the Ecuadorian from the
top of the box was one of several attempts the Xoloitzcuintles had during the opening 45 minutes. Ayovi controlled the ball from the top of
the box and shot to the left of
Vazquez, who was forced into
a diving save.
Club Tijuana’s Javier Salas
was the first one to produce
any danger in the 10th minute.
Salas took a throw-in pass and
had a shot on goal from inside
of the box on the right side.
Vazquez was able to put his
body on the shots path to send
the ball to a corner kick. Club
Tijuana goalkeeper Gibran
Lajud helped his team with
several key saves. He slapped
away a couple of shots from a
distance and ran and slid on to
a shot against a forward on a
one-on-one play.
It wasn’t until late in the
match when Javier Salas sent
in a cross from the right side
of the field that Martin was
able to meet to send the ball to
the back of the net.
The Guadalajara University
side continued to press forward
late in the match. Barraza was
able to find the equalizer for
the host via a header.
The draw means Leones
Negros are officially eliminated
from the Copa MX. The Xoloitzcuintles (3-0-2) could seal its
ticket to the quarterfinals with
a win or draw against Leones
Negros next week in the return leg at Estadio Caliente and
a Coras Tepic loss or draw
against Necaxa.
Next up for Club Tijuana is
a home match against Pachuca
on Friday night at the Estadio
Caliente in Week 8 of the LIGA
MX.
ROSTER: Club Tijuana: Elio
Castro, Henry Martin (Mathews Gomes 86th Minute), Gibran
Lajud, Luis Garca, Oliver Ortiz,
Edgar Villegas, Pedro Hernandez, Javier Salas, Luis
Chavez (Paul Arriola 68th),

Comenta Victoria Zepeda
Sotelo, que su trabajo consiste
en dar acompañamiento a los
procesos comunitarios a través
de las artes para atender
problemáticas sociales y ofertar
alta calidad en los servicios
públicos culturales en zonas
desconcentradas.
Adiciona citando al Profesor
Elliot Eisner, quien dice que”la
exposición a las artes sirve
como experiencia estética”.De
esta manera cuando llevas una
obra de teatro, evidentemente
que el contenido vaya dirigido
en ese sentido, no nada más una
práctica que te deje perdido,
sino que le de sentido a lo que
haces. Así logra un objetivo con
su trabajo e impacta en la
gente.
Continúa comentando que en
su trabajo como gestora cultural
acostumbra, percibir y analizar
la problemática social y como
se articula en diversas vertientes a través del arte y la
cultura y resultando una percepción sustancial que enriquece.
También desea esta joven
promesa tijuanense, ver al
término de la administración de
este gobierno, una apropiación
de las estructuras o de las
herramientas, que permitan
lograr una continuidad en su
operación; para lograr este
objetivo es necesario una
participación y una concientización ciudadana que así lo
defina.
Para concluir con la presentación del perfil de Victoria
Zepeda Sotelo, dice: que una de
las prioridades con que se
cuenta en la actualidad, son las
bibliotecas municipales y hace
una atenta invitación a hacer
uso de estos espacios vivos que
se encuentran en la comunidad
y por medio de la lectura se
logrará consolidar muchos
aspectos relativos al impulso y
proyección del arte y la cultura.

be action from a much broader
audience.
LPS: What has been the response from the local Mexican
consulate to the protests,
marches in the past? (The consulate didn’t respond to a request for comment before
deadline.)
Marques: We will only be
at the Mexican Consulate as a
significant place to start, and
for them to see a large crowd
gathered in the name of justice
for Ayotzinapa. However,
people at the consulate are just
handling paperwork and business, we are not there to disturb them and once we are
gathered we will be marching
forward to NBC, which is
where the real noise and demands will be made in the name
of our missing students and
those we have lost while defending them.
LPS: Why does the march
end in front of NBC?
Marques: The one consistent request of the families has
been “please do not forget us”
and we followed the lead of the
families they guide our actions
and this is our response.
Ayotzinapa was a quick flash
in the news here, that came
quickly with minimal coverage
then faded away.
The purpose of stopping in
front of NBC is to put
Ayotzinapa back on the news.
We are demanding coverage of
the situation in Ayotzinapa, because the world needs to know
this has not gone away. In many
ways it is getting harder and we
want the world to remember
the real struggle has only begun and is far from over.
If they won’t cover it on their
own accord, then we will stand
as a massive crowd, in front of
that building until we are interviewed about Ayotzinapa and
we have done everything in our
power to it give it the coverage
it deserves.
LPS: How many people do
you expect at the march?
arques: It’s hard to say, but
we’ve gotten a very positive
response in solidarity from the
entire county. We are asking
everybody of all ages, nationalities, backgrounds to march
with us to show how massive
the global support for
Ayotzinapa is, because this is
not just a Mexican problem, this
is a global problem.
LPS: Who is Gustavo
Salgado and why is his story
important to be included during
the march?
Marques: Gustavo Salgado
was a well known human rights
activists who had organized
many mobilizations demanding
the safe return of the same 43
missing students for whom are
marching. Salgado was kidnapped and then found brutally
killed for the work he did. His
story is important so that he can
be recognized for what he did,
that the government assassins
can try to silence him in his
work for the students, but we
will not let them. The same way
we won’t allow Ayotzinapa to
be forgotten.
LPS: Anything you’d like to
add?
Marques: I would like to
reiterate that at the end of the
day, the basis of this movement
is human support and solidarity, and this march is here to
echo San Diego’s presence in
the worldwide fight for justice,
to find these 43 students and
support these parents. The
same we would want someone
to fight for our own mothers
and furthermore our own children. We must remember they
are not looking to start a political party, but looking for their
children and it must be treated
that way.

march and about the Comité
Acción Ayotzinapa, you can

and by reason of default in the payment
or performance of obligations secured

notice of which was recorded October 19,
2012, as Document No. 2012-0641505 of
said Official Records, WILL SELL AT
PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST
BIDDER for cash (payable at the time of

legally described as: As more fully described in the aforesaid Notice of Delinquent Assessment and Notice of Default.
The street address and other common
designation, if any, of the real property
described above is: 701 Edgewater

Parcel Number: 595-222-03-76. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common description, if

recordation.
TRUSTEE’S SALE
NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If
you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that
there are risks involved in bidding at a
trustee auction. You will be bidding on a
lien, not on the property itself. Placing the
highest bid at a trustee auction does not
automatically entitle you to free and clear
ownership of the property. You should
also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are
the highest bidder at the auction, you are
or may be responsible for paying off all
liens senior to the lien being auctioned
off, before you can receive clear title to
the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of
outstanding liens that may exist on this
property by contacting the county
recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a
fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be
aware that the same lender may hold
more than one mortgage or deed of trust
on the property.
NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The
sale date shown on this notice of sale
may be postponed one or more times by
the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a
court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the
California Civil Code. The law requires
that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and
to the public, as a courtesy to those not
present at the sale. If you wish to learn
whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this
property, you may call 760-438-1914 during business hours for information regarding the trustee’s sale. Recorded questions left by voice mail will be returned
the next business day. Information about
postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the
scheduled sale may not immediately be
reflected in the telephone information.
The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.

FAMILY FEATURES
F
or many families, gathering around the table is a treasured tradition. With universal appeal, cuts of tender, juicy
beef are ideal for a wide range of family-friendly dishes — from appetizers to special occasion entrees.
If your schedule and commitments have you pinched for time, opt for the convenience of home delivery. Starting
with premium products, such as those available from Omaha Steaks, lets you create the perfect meal every time. Each
cut of beef is perfectly aged and flash-frozen at its peak of flavor and tenderness, and delivered right to your door with
a 100 percent quality guarantee.
There are as many ways to prepare beef as there are cuts to choose from. The best approach depends on the type
of flavor you want to achieve, and how you’ll ultimately serve the dish. One popular option that creates robust, hearty
flavors perfect for dinnertime feasts is braising. This celebrated technique is featured in this Omaha Steaks family
recipe for Braised Beef Brisket. Or, add some pre-dinner bites to your spread with Bacon Wrapped Tenderloin Tip
Appetizers, a savory recipe that is sure to be a hit among guests.
Find these and more beef preparation tips and recipes at www.omahasteaks.com.

Round wood toothpicks
Thaw steak tips and bacon overnight in
refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 450°F degrees.
Sprinkle each tenderloin tip with seasoning.

Place bacon-wrapped tips on baking sheet.
Bake for 3 minutes; flip and bake an additional

Braising (from the French word
“braiser”) is a combination cooking
method that uses both moist and dry
heats. Typically, the food is first
seared at a high temperature, then
finished in a covered pot or pan at a
lower temperature while sitting in
some amount of liquid, which may
also add flavor.
The purpose of braising is to break
down the connecting tissues,
enhancing the meat’s tenderness.
Some examples of cuts that are
typically braised include:
Chuck (Chuck Eye Roast, Chuck
Arm Roast, Chuck Shoulder
Roast, Short Ribs)
Brisket (Whole Brisket, Brisket
Flat Roast, Brisket Point Roast)
Shank (Cross Cut Shanks, Whole
Beef Shanks)
Round (Top Round Roast, Bottom
Round Roast, Eye Round Roast,
Boneless Rump Roast)
First brown your roast using a large
pan and some oil over high heat,
seasoning the protein first.
Once the roast is browned, “deglaze”
the pan using wine or some of the
liquid that will be used in the braising
process, to capture drippings from
the pan that are loaded with flavor.
Thaw brisket overnight in refrigerator.
Heat canola oil in large pan.
Blot brisket dry with clean paper towel and
generously season each side with 2 teaspoons
seasoning.
Brown brisket in hot oil on both sides for
about 2–4 minutes each side. Remove brisket
from pan and place in crock pot, raised side
braising pan or Dutch oven.
Add onion and garlic to hot oil and cook
until transparent. Add remaining ingredients
and bring to a boil. Pour sauce into crock pot,
raised side braising pan or Dutch oven.
If using crock pot, cook on low for 6–8
hours. If using braising pan or Dutch oven,
cover tightly with foil or lid and place in
oven at 250°F for 6–8 hours.
Serve the same day or cool overnight
in refrigerator before slicing and reheating
in sauce.
Once the roast is browned you will
want to place it, along with all the
liquid including the pan drippings,
in a Dutch oven or deep roasting
pan. It is very important to cover
the top of the pan as tightly as
possible so steam and pressure will
build up during the oven cooking
process.
The liquid for the braising process
can vary depending on the dish
you’re trying to make. For example,
barbecue sauce would be used for a
barbecue brisket, and beef broth
would be used for a pot roast.
Usually if using a thick liquid such
as barbecue sauce you will want to
thin it down with wine, broth or
water. It will thicken as it cooks,
and if it gets too thick it will burn.
You can also experiment with
putting root vegetables in the
braising pan along with your roast
to create a complete meal and
enhance the flavor.
The oven part of the process is
usually done at 250°F and can
vary in time from 3 to 8 hours,
depending on what cut is being
braised and how big it is. A general
rule of thumb is that the protein
will shred easily with a fork when
it is properly braised.
