Una Voz Unida is a 501c4 organization which makes it non-profit and allows it to collect donations. They also have a PAC (Political Action Committee) that will endorse candidates and fund their campaigns. To my knowledge, they have not yet obtained their 501c3 status which will allow them to apply for federal grants, but I would guess that this is their next step since they are currently concentrating on “civic education,” one of the primary ways for organizations to obtain federal money.
When Art declared himself a “mestizo,” he was using a code word that identified him with groups that support the takeover of Aztlan. Art put up the Santa Barbara Plan de Aztlan on his original website for Una Voz Unida. The Santa Barbara Plan de Aztlan promotes the takeover of “Atzlan,” a mythical area consisting of the lower southwest United States by “any means necessary” with the end result of kicking European (and any other races other than Chicano) out to include extermination. There are more Plans de Atzlan, all written by various MEChA university campus groups, all saying basically the same things.
One of the groups Art will be meeting with in San Antonio is MAPA (Mexican-American Political Association). This group, along with La Hermandad Mexicana Natcional, has been successful in electing many of their cohorts to office, including senators and Henry Cisneros, Secretary of Commerce. They are most active in California where they contributed to the elections of Antonio Villagairosa , mayor LA, and Fabian Nunez, speaker of the house in the California legislature. These two attempted to take over the LA school system a while back with the help of Nativo Lopez, current head of MAPA. Navtio Lopez runs what looks like a secret service around Antonio Villagairosa and uses men in red vests with La Hermandad Mexicana Nacional on the back on the vests for crowd control and direction. All have been accused of corruption and misuse of funds.
MAPA was founded by Bert Corona, again, the avowed radical communist, I’ve been yelling about who also founded the school in DC we are sending the migrant kids to.
Art also advertised in Nueva Raza for donations. Check out this site. It’s also Atzlan. oriented.
A little digging into the Nueva Raza site showed they are connected with the SDS. Yeah, the old Students for a Democratic Society… you know, that group associated with the Weathermen that was so fond of bombing back in the 60’s and 70’s.
So, Mayor Melton, et al, you really want to lend credence to Una Voz Unida?
