Vote for Ron Gochez for Los Angeles City Council District 9!

Los Angeles, CA—The Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations calls on all of our members, supporters and allies to vote for Ron Gochez for Los Angeles City Council District on tomorrow’s election, March 5, 2013.
Gochez's electoral bid for the council seat was endorsed by the Black is Back Coalition at its August 18th and 19th, 2012 national conference on electoral politics held in Newark, New Jersey. Gochez delivered a powerful solidarity speech at the conference.
Ron Gochez is a longtime fighter for the rights of Mexican and African people. Gochez’s City Council campaign has garnered the popular support of the Mexican and African communities in Los Angeles.
At the same time, Gochez’s stance and campaign have come under attack by white nationalists in part because his bid for City Council was endorsed by the Black is Back Coalition, a coalition of progressive African organizations united around the principles of African self-determination and anti-imperialism.
As a member of Unión del Barrio, one of the most significant and influential anti-imperialist Mexican national liberation organizations, Gochez has done practical work in uniting the African and Mexican communities throughout southern California.
Gochez is currently a high school history teacher in South Central LA, a proud member of United Teachers of Los Angeles (UTLA), Vice President of the South Central Neighborhood Council and a leading member of multiple community based organizations.
In his role as a teacher, Gochez has also helped black students to organize in their own interests as well.
Gochez is also a firm, active opponent of the increasingly white nationalist and ugly "anti-immigrant" politics that has ratcheted up recently against Mexicans and other Latinos, especially in California.
“As a working class community, we need to realize that the only way that we can defend our interests and win political power is if to organize ourselves independently from the two-party system that is responsible for many of the problems plaguing our communities,” wrote Gochez on his website, style=”width:250px;” />



Victory to Ron Gochez!
