Disturbing video portrays Mecha's agenda and the illegal invasion that is occuring in the U.S.

The background visuals on the "Aztlan" video were taken in Los Angeles at the supposedly 500,000 person demonstration on March 25, 2006. But the speeches by Jose Angel Gutierrez, Fabian Nunez, Herman Baca, Armando Navarro, were made in 1995 at a MECHA conference at the University of California, Riverside after the passage of Proposition 187.

The remarks on the video by Antonio Villaraigosa, now the Mayor of Los Angeles, were made at a Southwest Voter's Registration Project meeting in June of 1997. At that time Villaraigosa was the California State Assembly Majority Leader. All of the people whose pictures was superimposed on the visuals, attended the Los Angeles Demonstration in 2006.

Newspaper reports confirm that Villaraigosa and Fabian Nunez attended the March 2006 demonstration. On that occasion the mayor said, for example, "I welcome you the immigrants, who built this city. God bless you."

Fabian Nunez, the California Assembly Speaker also made a speech.

LA Times reported that Fabien Núñez spent tens of thousands of dollars of campaign money for personal expenses such as $1800 for a meal at a Parisian restaurant & $5000 for wine from Bordeaux. Núñez played the race card when questioned about his use of campaign funds by saying, "Everyone's done it like this" and "The difference is there are some in politics who want to judge me in a certain manner. Because of the fact I am Mexican, they think I have to sleep under a cactus and eat from taco stands.

Núñez's son Esteban was charged with murder after stabbing a man in San Diego in October 2008 because he was refused entrance to a fraternity party.

There was also a Latino Forum on January 12, 2006 in San Bernadino, California where Herman Baca, Armando Navarro and others, including a member of Congress, Joe Baca and his son a California Assemblyman, Joe Baca Jr., made speeches.

These are the most racist and anti-American speeches imaginable delivered by individuals who are now a mayor, a members of Congress, and the state Assembly, the top leaders in the California state House, the head of the California Democratic Party, Art Torres, and full professor at the University of California.

The acronym MEChA stands for "Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan." or "Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan."

MEChA is an Hispanic separatist organization that encourages anti-American activities and civil disobedience. The radical members of MEChA who refer to themselves as "Mechistas," romanticize Mexican claims to the "lost Territories" of the Southwestern United States -- a Chicano country called Aztlan. In its national constitution, MEChA calls for self-determination by its members to liberate Aztlan. MEChA's national constitution starts out: "Chicano and Chicana students of Aztlán must take upon themselves the responsibilities to promote Chicanismo within the community, politicizing our Raza with an emphasis on indigenous consciousness to continue the struggle for the self-determination of the Chicano people for the purpose of liberating Aztlán."

These anti-American "Mechistas" live with the false illusion that they are being racially discriminated against because they are Latinos while totally dismissing the idea that maybe it is their ideology that is being discriminated against.

At the MEChA National Conference on March 15 - 18, 2001, the official "MEChA Philosophy" was ratified. An excerpt from the document states: "as Mechistas, we vow to work for the liberation of Aztlan."

The MEChA Clubs on each of the Santa Barbara High School campuses are not the only ones. MEChA groups exist on 90 percent of the public high school, college and university campuses in the Southwestern United States.
