The Legacy of Educating, Organizing, and Agitating: 1995-2012
In 1994, the only signs of political struggle for self-determination were taking place at the local high schools and community colleges on the Oxnard Plain. This movement was led by a new generation of organizers and activists who saw a need to expose the contradictions of colonialism, capitalism, and imperialism.
During the early months of 1994, Oxnard College MEChA (the majority of the founders of the CRR were members of this organization) started to organize against the racist initiative Proposition 187.
- Co-Organized Proposition 187 Walkouts, October 28, 1994.
- Co-Organized Proposition 187 Hunger Fast, November 6, 1994.
At the end of 1994, we decided that it was time to organize an organization that would strive to create revolutionary change and struggle against the chains of oppression. We had learned from the mistakes of organizing the Proposition 187 Walkout and Hunger Fast. We decided that this organization would work for true self-determination, justice, and democracy for our gente in Oxnard and Occupied Mexico/Aztlán.
