sexual abuse


Famed labor organizer and activist Dolores Huerta has been fighting sexual harassment and discrimination since forever — when she was working in an office, when she was building the United Farm Workers, and when men tried to take credit for her work. In this video, by Hannah McNally, Huerta tells her story.

Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his Maricopa Madmen never cease to amaze in their wanton quest to lower the bar on human rights in America, as seen in this tragic story of combat veteran Marty Atencio, the latest victim of Arpaio’s reign of terror.

This tragedy about an all-American man beaten to death in Maricopa County Sheriff custody just before Christmas shows that even two generations of distinguished combat service to the U.S of A. don’t mean squat to Generalissimo Joe Arpaio, a man reviled the world over and the subject of our latest Pocho Ocho list.

We’ve come up with eight choice nicknames for this vile death-dealing gila monster. Feel free to submit some of your own…or the terrorists will win!

Arizona has made it illegal to be brown in their state, now that a judge has ruled that it is illegal to think brown.

Tucson Unified School District’s Mexican-American Studies Department has lost an appeal before a Razaphobic judge and faces the complete dismantling of their academic program. Mexican-American Studies educates brown and non-brown children, but the main problem to Superintendent John Huppenthal is that brown children come out smarter and empowered after taking MAS courses.

Arizona state school officials violate the educational rights of brown children while Sheriff Joe Arpaio allows the violation of brown children.

Cue the banjos!
