Legendary Activist Dolores Huerta Celebrates 80th Birthday with Call for "Weaving Movements Together"
The legendary activist Dolores Huerta, co-founder of the United Farm Workers of America with César Chávez, is celebrating her eightieth birthday this year. A veteran of the labor, civil rights, immigrant rights, and feminist movements in this country, she was instrumental in passing the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Bill, which resulted in the legalization of 1.3 million farm workers. To celebrate her birthday, Huerta is holding a benefit concert in Los Angeles Friday with guests including the guitarist Carlos Santana and Zack de la Rocha of Rage Against the Machine. Calling the event "Weaving Movements Together," Huerta says she wants to join up immigrant rights, LGBT, feminist, environmental and labor activists.

On Monday morning outside Fort Hood, five protestors took it upon themselves to blockade a public street, used for mass military deployments, and halted the buses for just ten seconds. Despite the fact that the Iraq war isn't over and the war in Afghanistan has become the longest in US history, protesters have disappeared compared to the thousands or even millions at the start of the Iraq war, and especially since the days of Vietnam. Dolores Huerta, tireless activist and co-founder of United Farm Workers of America with Cesar Chavez, explains a time when people really felt like they could make a difference.

The Cuban 5 were monitoring Cuban American terrorist groups in Miami in order to report their planned threats back to Cuba. Previous and current US administrations have tolerated the activities of these violent groups since 1959, and as a result, more than 3,400 Cubans have died. While the Cuban 5 are serving long sentences in US prisons, dangerous terrorists such as Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch walk free the streets of Miami.
