UCLA Bruin Alumni Association Outs Villaraigosa as a MEChA Racist

        May 8, 2005; Los Angeles, CA – The Bruin Alumni Association announced the start of a 10-day media and protest blitz to educate the citizens of Los Angeles about current mayoral candidate Antonio Villaraigosa’s radical background as a leader of the UCLA chapter of Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA) from 1972-1975.  The BAA will make the first of multiple protest appearances on May 8, 2005, with others to follow.  Contact for future dates.

Archival investigation of UCLA campus newspaper The Daily Bruin have revealed that Villaraigosa (then known simply as Tony Villar) engineered the removal of the director of the Chicano Studies Center for his refusal to include “community involvement,” specifically from the Communist Chicano group “National Committee to Free Los Tres.”  The NCFLT, as the full story on shows, was a Marxist-Leninist faction whose goals included the creation of a "revolutionary vanguard" dedicated to the "liberation of the Mexican people."

MEChA itself holds similarly racist, separatist and treasonous views.  Its founding document El Plan Espiritual de Aztlan states, “We do not recognize capricious frontiers on the bronze continent,” declares that “For the very young there will no longer be acts of juvenile delinquency, but revolutionary acts,” and introduced the motto “Por la raza, todo, fuera de la raza, nada (For those of the [Hispanic] race, everything, for those not of the [Hispanic] race, nothing).”

Bruin Alumni Association President Andrew Jones stated, “As a recent alumnus of UCLA, I have had first-hand experience with the radical philosophy and violent practices of the UCLA MEChA chapter that Antonio Villaraigosa helped build.  We call on Mr. Villaraigosa to publicly and unequivocally renounce his association with MEChA.”

Until Election Day on May 17, the BAA will be protesting at multiple Villaraigosa campaign events and conducting a wide-ranging media campaign to educate Los Angeles voters on the candidate’s radical background.

The Bruin Alumni Association, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in 2005, serves to educate UCLA alumni and the general public about campus matters, including the radical take-over of the student body, faculty, and administration, and seeks to take steps to reverse the ongoing destruction of UCLA’s good name.
