Insurgency: 1968 Aztec Walkout
Reported as a rebellion by the Azusa Herald, a local newspaper, this In Xochitl In Cuicatl (flowery song) explains the causes for the student walkout at Azusa High on December 13, 1968. With pivotal advice and assistance from Sal Castro, student leaders form UMAS (United Mexican American Students), forerunner of MECHA, a Xicano student organization today found on many high school and college campuses. It vividly details the author's successful year end frantic struggle to gain admission to a four year college after being rejected by seven colleges and universities whose applications were deliberately sabotaged by school administrators. This historical nonfiction account is a powerful and extraordinary unique glance in that 1968 year or worldwide student activism and which was also a part and part of the late 1960's incipient movimiento known as La Causa Chicana.
