NUEVO PLAN DE AZTLAN

WHEREAS, We the Chicanas y Chicanos de Norte America honor our Nahua heritage with all our hearts and minds;

WHEREAS, We the Chicanas y Chicanos de Norte America honor the sacred call of our Nahua ancestors for peace and justice throughout our Americas; and

WHEREAS, We the Chicanas y Chicanos de Norte America recognize La Raza has been struggling with a new wave of racial persecution in our Americas since
September 11, 2001.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, We the Chicanos y Chicanos de Norte America resolve as follows:

SECTION 1. TITLE

This resolution may be cited as Nuevo Plan de Aztlan.

SECTION 2. TERMINOLOGY

Nuevo Plan de Aztlan is based on the following terminology:

a) Americanas y Americanos

Americanas y Americanos are Americans from throughout our Americas regardless of race, color, language, culture, nationality, ethnicity, religion or creed.

b) Aztlan

The concept of Aztlan is derived from the Nahua history of the Mexicas before their southern migration from Norte America into Centro Mexico during the 11th Century. Aztlan today is a free and sovereign nation of native-born U.S. citizens of Mexican-American and(or) Mexican descent (Indigenas) who consider ourselves Chicanas y Chicanos regardless of where we were born, live or die.

c) Carnalismo

Carnalismo is the love and compassion Chicanas y Chicanos have for each other as carnalas y carnales (sisters and brothers). Carnalismo is what unites Chicanas y Chicanos as we work for peace and justice.

d) Chicanas y Chicanos

Chicanas y Chicanos are native-born U.S. citizens of Mexican-American and(or) Mexican descent (Indigenas) who consider ourselves Chicanas y Chicanos based on our Nahua heritage.

f) El Movimiento

El Movimiento is the indigenous Chicana y Chicano Movement for peace and justice. El Movimiento is comprised of numerous academic, athletic, artistic, business, commercial, cultural, educational, political, recreational, social, spiritual, wholistic and other philanthropic networks of Chicanas y Chicanos working for peace and justice throughout Aztlan, our Americas and the world.

g) Indigenas

Often called Native Americans or American Indians, Indigenas are all the indigenous peoples of our Americas. Most Indigenas are of mixed-race lineage like Chicanas y Chicanos. There are millions of mixed-race Indigenas throughout our Americas and on outlying islands.

h) La Causa

La Causa is for peace and justice, the eternal cause of Chicanas y Chicanos who recognize there can be no true peace without true justice, i.e., the abolition of poverty, racism, sexism and all other injusticias.

i) La Raza

Chicanas y Chicanos can be Black, White, Brown, Red and(or) any other skin color like the rest of La Raza and human race. The concept of La Raza was derived from a 1925 essay published by Jose Vasconcelos, a Mexican philosopher who called the millions of mixed-race Indigenas with Latin-American and(or) Latin-European ancestors La Raza Cosmica.

Every race, color, nationality, ethnicity, culture, language, religion and creed in the world is represented in La Raza due to the centuries of assimilation, acculturation and miscegenation in our Americas. This rich diversity is the unifying power, force and strength of Chicanas y Chicanos, and of all La Raza as we grow to know, understand and honor our great heritage.

j) Latinas y Latinos

Latinas y Latinos of our Americasare mixed-race Indigenas with Latin-American and(or) Latin-European ancestors.

k) Racism

Racial categories are crude labels based on parentage and(or) physical traits, not sacred or scientific proof of ones superior or inferior nature like racists believe.

Racism is the belief one or more races are inherently superior to one or more other races. [Example: Many Americans believe White people are inherently superior to Non-White people and that Black people are inherently inferior to all other people.]

Racism includes the belief mixed-race individuals are inferior to those born from parents of the same race. Race-mixing is still condemned by racists today.

Indigenas were considered savages (less-than-human) when Europeans first invaded and occupied the Americas. Christianized and otherwise assimilated Indigenas were and still are considered inferior by todays racists.

Racists are not just poor or average citizens, there are wealthy and highly educated racists throughout government and society who strive to protect and preserve their privileged status via institutional, industrial and commercial racism.

The racist imposition of the colonial English language on Indigenas continues to cause horrendous problems for Chicanas y Chicanos in education, employment and virtually all other aspects of life in the U.S. Laws, rules and regulations are selectively enforced by local, state, federal and private institutions against La Raza, as the English language is employed as a weapon against Chicanas y Chicanos to deprive us of liberty, equality and justice throughout our lives.

Private industry (free enterprise) causes havoc for Chicanas y Chicanos by perpetuating racist stereotypes and beliefs about La Raza for profit and gain. [Example: Mass media and the entertainment industries commercialize racist stereotypes and beliefs about Latinas y Latinos throughout the world, while pretending to be spreading freedom and democracy alongside the Pentagon.]

SECTION 3. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

Nuevo Plan de Aztlan addresses the alarming attacks orchestrated against Indigenas throughout Norte America since September 11, 2001 (9/11).

U.S. officials are using La Raza as a scapegoat or smokescreen, as they continue to perpetrate heinous war crimes in the Middle East. According to their domestic propaganda, the real problem and therefore actual enemy or threat to national security is Mexicans and other Indigenas invading the U.S., not the Pentagon spreading freedom and democracy in the Middle East.

Thousands of racist media, vigilante, homeland security and other hostile actions have been executed against Indigenas since 9/11, as tens of thousands of these men, women and children have been rounded up and herded out of Norte America like cattle.

SECTION 4. HISTORICAL ANALYSIS

Indigenas have suffered centuries of injusticias including genocide, rape, torture, mayhem, kidnapping, slavery, peonage, poverty, homelessness and groundless imprisonment at the hands of the original European invaders and occupiers of the Americas. The offspring of these European terrorists expect Chicanas y Chicanos to ignore or forget this true account of their ancestors horrendous atrocities against our ancestors, as if they never occurred or mattered.

As English colonialism in the U.S. continues to evolve into global imperialism, La Raza is increasingly faced with discriminatory law enforcement, housing, education, employment, healthcare, mass media, entertainment and other racist industrial, commercial and institutional policies and practices especially since 9/11. The offspring of the European terrorists who originally stole our ancestral lands are guilty of receiving this stolen property but remain in denial, as they continue to exploit, oppress and deprive us of our ancestral lands and freedoms for their own racist purposes.

U.S. racists are now working to outlaw MEChA and all our other democratic associations, as if well-educated Chicanas y Chicanos are the real problem or cause of too many Mexicans and other Indigenas in Norte America today. These same racists oppose affirmative action, financial aid, fair housing, bilingual and multicultural education, ethnic studies, equal employment opportunities and all other ways and means of attempting to create level playing fields for La Raza, as if the U.S. only belongs to Aryans or Anglo-Americans.

Section 5. MEXICO, LAS AMERICAS

The 21st Century campaign against Mexicans in the U.S. is also aimed at Chicanas y Chicanos since we are all Nahua people. Chicanas y Chicanos have an innate relationship with Mexicanas y Mexicanos because of our common Nahua heritage that will never end.

Indigenas throughout our Americas are suffering from these racist attacks because we are being treated as a threat or potential threat to national security by the U.S. government at the local, state and federal level en masse.

Section 6. GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

a) We the Chicanas y Chicanos de Norte America must reach beyond nationalism to establish and(or) coalesce with parallel movements of Indigenas united around our multilingual, multiracial and multicultural heritage throughout our Americas and on outlying islands.

b) El Movimientos mass communication, organization and mobilization initiatives call for Chicanas y Chicanos to join forces with all La Raza against our common exploiters and oppressors because we cannot be free unless and until all La Raza is free.

c) Economic justice cannot be achieved without social and political justice. La Raza needs to form an international union of free and sovereign indigenous nations to work for this justicia as opposed to permitting the racists to continue exploiting and oppressing La Raza via commercial, industrial and institutional racism from generation-to-generation.

d) This new Union De Las Americas (American Union) must ensure liberty, equality and justice for all the people in our member nations who can live, work and travel freely throughout our Union.

e) The first priority of our new Union is to abolish poverty, racism and sexism in our Americas.

f) The American Union will ensure all workers in our member nations receive good jobs and compensation for their labor and services so that all Americanas y Americanos can afford nice homes in safe and secure neighborhoods and communities. People unable to work will also live in nice homes in these safe and secure neighborhoods and communities because no one will live in poverty or homelessness except by his or her own choosing.

g) We the Chicanas y Chicanos de Norte America will ensure our children learn about our Nahua roots, at home and in all the schools, colleges and universities of our Americas so that future generations will know, understand and honor our great heritage.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, We the Chicanas y Chicanos de Norte America will live our daily lives in accordance with this Nuevo Plan de Aztlan to the best of our abilities.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, We the Chicanas y Chicanos de Norte America will share Nuevo Plan de Aztlan with all our relatives, friends and neighbors; and we will encourage all Chicana y Chicano organizations to formally adopt Nuevo Plan de Aztlan as their new Mission Statement from this day forward.
