Fallen Warrior: First Death from Walkouts = Anthony Soltero

'Picture of Anthony Soltero With Familia'

Jueves~ April 13, 2006

Venceremos La Raza Cosmica!

Let us all learn well important key lessons for all our lives from the tragic death of our young Fallen Warrior Anthony Soltero, gone too soon.

All sincere prayers and heartfelt condolences to his Madre
Louise Corales for her great loss. Mother Earth's cry, Heaven's Above Smile!

Let us remember to strive for balance in our daily lives: to be good discerning parents, to be responsible adults and to be righteous brothers and sisters to each other. Help with the Movimiento, but do not forget the lucha begins at home, starts with our own familias and in our own comunity.

Take the time to pay attention and listen to our youth, to help them in any way we can in their unspoken struggles and to remember that they are our future! Let us nurture and develop our future!

As a people, we have far to go, though we have already traveled a long ways and I know we will win. I can already see the horizon ~ a land where a free liberated people love, work and play in loving harmony upon Mother Earth!

Let Us March Forward to Liberacion! Adelante!
Mobilize for May 1st and Beyond!
End Amerikan Occupation!

Paz y Libertad!!!

First Death from Walkouts
by Pachuco Saturday, Apr. 08, 2006 at 3:02 PM

This is not a game . . .
Sunday, April 9, 2006
12:00 p.m.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Church
710 S. Sultana Ave., Ontario, CA 91761

Actor Edward James Olmos and Movie Producer Moctezuma Esparza HBO’s “East L.A Walkouts,”“Selena,”“Milagro Beanfield War”) will be among the many community members who will join Louise Corales, the mother of Anthony Soltero, age 14, in a prayer for her son this Sunday, following the 11:00 a.m. mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Ontario, California. Ms. Corales will speak to the press and the community at 12:00 noon, after the 11 o’clock mass on Sunday, April 9, 2006.

Eighth grader Anthony Soltero shot himself through the head on Thursday, March 30, after the assistant principal at De Anza Middle School told him that he was going to prison for three years because of his involvement as an organizer of the March 28 school walk-outs to protest the anti-immigrant legislation in Washington. The vice principal also forbade Anthony from attending graduation activities and threatened to fine his mother for Anthony’s truancy and participation in the student protests.

“Anthony was learning about the importance of civic duties and rights in his eighth grade class. Ironically, he died because the vice principal at his school threatened him for speaking out and exercising those rights,” Ms. Corales said today. “I want to speak out to other parents, whose children are attending the continuing protests this week. We have to let the schools know that they can’t punish our children for exercising their rights.”

Anthony’s death is likely the first fatality arising from the protests against the immigration legislation being considered in Washington, D.C. Anthony, who was a very good student at De Anza Middle School in the Ontario-Montclair School District, believed in justice and was passionate about the immigration issue. He is survived by his mother, Louise Corales, his father, a younger sister, and a baby brother.

Anthony’s funeral and burial are scheduled for Monday, April 10, 2006, at 9:30 a.m., STRICKLAND & SNIVERY, 1953 Long Beach Boulevard, Long Beach, CA 90806.
