Película documental sobre el papel del ejército mexicano en las desapariciones forzadas en Iguala, Guerrero. 

Por: Ojos de Perro vs. la Impunidad, AC 

En la noche del 26 al 27 de septiembre de 2014, un grupo de estudiantes de la Escuela Normal de Ayotzinapa fue perseguido, balaceado y dispersado en diversos escenarios de la ciudad de Iguala, Guerrero, y los alrededores. Seis personas murieron, una quedó en estado vegetativo y 43 están desaparecidas. Los atacantes fueron miembros de la policía local, que actuaron bajo la vigilancia directa de agentes de corporaciones estatales y federales, y del Ejército mexicano. La investigación, marcada por profundas deficiencias, ha estado dirigida a encubrir cualquier participación de niveles superiores al municipal. Especialmente, se ha querido proteger a los militares, a pesar de que existen numerosos indicios de que varias de sus unidades –en particular el 27º Batallón de Infantería- están involucradas en actos de represión política y en la desaparición de ciudadanos, así como con estructuras de protección al crimen organizado.

The Chicana Movement, Past, Present, and Future

SHOULDERS to STAND ON
The Chicana Movement, Past, Present, and Future
JUNE 3 - JULY 31, 2016


From roots of self-discovery, strong branches blossomed with Chicana literature, art, and activism. San Diego’s Latina women drew on the strength of ancestors and their own experiences to gain recognition for their contributions, accomplishments, and leadership potential. They struggled, organized, innovated, educated and inspired others in the community to set goals and achieve them. Meet the California women who turned aspiration into a movement. And explore the Chicana Movement of today’s generation in art, literature and activism.

Chicano Struggle in San Diego- Jan to May 20, 2016

Unidos por la Causa 
The Chicana and Chicano Experience in San Diego 
Art Exhibit at the LRC / City College Library 



The exhibit displays photographs, art, and historic documents illustrating the early years of the Chicano movement for social justice and civil rights in San Diego. The exhibit includes a rich and vivid presentation of a selection of 62 movement related posters and broadsides produced in the 1960s and 1970s promoting anti-war marches, UFW protests, student conferences and many other cultural and political events, demonstrating the movement's struggle for equal education and its resistance to injustice. 

Unidos Por la Causa is a guide to some of the most seminal events in San Diego's Chicana/o history, including those which helped to shape the community during the 1960's and 1970's. The exhibit draws upon materials held in Special Collections and University Archives. These collections, many of which have only recently been acquired, include the Arturo Casares Papers, the Enriqueta Chavez Papers, the Chicana and Chicano Studies Department Records, the Chicano Federation of San Diego County Records, the Leonard Fierro Papers, the Maria Garcia Papers, MANA of San Diego County Records, the Rene Nuñez Papers, and others.
