Justice for Nativo

Recent allegations by the California Secretary of State have resulted in criminal charges against Nativo Lopez, President of the Mexican American Political Association and National Director of Hermandad Mexicana Latinoamericana, by the Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley.
To the community that he has helped, this is a direct attack on what we stand for: justice and freedom for all. An attack on one is an attack on all. To the larger community this is a political ploy to discredit a respected and honored leader of our community who has never shied away from demanding justice for workers, students, and immigrants, undocumented or otherwise, and for the Raza.

Please support him this Thursday, July 2nd, 2009 by attending a strategy meeting to discuss the next steps in defense of Nativo from the trumped up allegations of election fraud that have resulted in felony charges.

Should you have further questions please don't hesitate to contact Nathalie Contreras, JUSTICE FOR NATIVO COMMITTEE convener, at or directly at (310) 890-5566.

Thank you for your support.

URGENT: Please send a letter by fax and call District Attorney Steve Cooley today urgently before July 8, 2009, the arraignment date for Nativo Lopez. The court is the Los Angeles Superior Court located at 210 W. Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012, Dept. 30; and the time of the arraignment will be 8:30 a.m. Please take the time to attend to show your support - and demand JUSTICE FOR NATIVO.
