Many of the Chicanos were judged on their race or even by the way they look, they were sent away to the Vietnam war where thousands lost their lives and were left as los

t.On September 17, 1970, East Los Angeles's Laguna Park was renamed in honor of Ruben Salazar, who was one of many activist killed during the monotorium.
