  • Chicanos and Chicanas demanded to be equal

  • M.E.Ch.A was founded on the principles of self-determination for the liberation of people

    • These people called themselves “Mechistas” and they were to claim lost territories in southwestern United States, the specific country was Aztlán.

      • They wanted to claim it as their own

        • This was used to show the “raza” to continue self -determination and promote chicanismo in the community to show our struggles.
