Context: In 1981, The MLN Mexicano, called for this conference to discuss the reunification of Northern Mexico (annexed by the US in the 1840’s) with the Mexican Nation. In the words of Ricardo Romero, “In calling for a reunification, we feel that we have to have a confederation of revolutionary and progressive forces from Mejico meeting with the progressive Chicano forces from occupied Mejico to start discussion, to start debate, in terms of the whole national question of the Chicano/Mejicano people. We feel that the reason that hasn’t been accomplished—that we haven’t come up with a national question in terms of our people—is that we can’t do one without the other. Mejico, to us, we look at like Vietnam, there’s a north and a south to it. It is split up by United States’ imperialism. This is why we are calling for a discussion on reunification of the Mexican nation.” Several hundred activists came to El Paso and Juarez under the call of reunification and socialism for Mexico. This poster is in Spanish, but significant numbers of North American activists attended the conference.
