50th Anniversary Celebration to Commemorate the 1966 Starr County Farm Workers Melon Strike & March to Austin


Queridos amigos y amigas:


On Sunday Sept.11th we will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the 1966 Rio Grande Farm Workers Melon Strike & March to Austin. Please put this date on your calendar. This is going to be a historical event, aqui estamos y no nos vamos. I attended the June 1st. Anniversary in Rio Grande and was quite impress with the elder huelgistas stories. Tish Hinojosa, Juan Tejeda and Raul Valdez provided la musica. If you go to their link United Farm Workers 2016 | Texas you'll see newspaper articles, photos,etc.  Bueno hope to see all of you present. SI SE PUEDE!!!

un gran abrazo,

Modesta
