Juan Jose Gutierrez of Latino Movement USA details the birth and growth of the immigrant rights movement starting in 1968, continuing through the amnesty (signed by Reagan!) in 1986, to the huge, historic marches of March 25 and May 1 of this year.
Gutierrez was a major organizer of the massive anti-Prop 187 march in California in 1994, and played a leading role in organizing for March 25 and May 1. He discusses the history, the various groups involved, and where the movement is going, with a perspective and knowledge that comes from 38 years of organizing.
