National Tour of the Comité de Defensa Popular


National Tour of the Comite de Defensa Popular (C.D.P.)  Context:  In 1848 Mexico lost half of the territory after the US invaded and annexed what is now the US southwest.  The Comite de Defensa Popular (C.D.P.)  was a revolutionary mass organization in Chihuahua that participated in the 1981 El Paso/Juarez conference on the reunification of Mexico. This event in celebration of Cinco de Mayo, was part of a national tour to promote dialogue between the common bonds between the Chicano and Mexican movements for socialism and reunification.
