Cesar Chavez & Martin Luther King
Cesar Estrada Chavez (March 31, 1927 – April 23, 1993) was an American farm worker, labor leader, and Civil Rights activist who, with Dolores Huerta, co-founded the National Farm Workers Association, which later became the United Farm Workers (UFW). Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. /5

We so easily forget the lessons of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and Cesar Chavez. Peaceful protest is about dialogue.
People felt the same way about Caitlyn than they did back in the day about Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Cesar Chavez, etc.

Ok.👎 California observes the official federal holidays which are New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day as well as days celebrating birthdays or notable people including Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Lincoln’s and Washington’s Birthdays, and Cesar Chavez Day. As in many states, California employers are not required to pay their workers holiday pay when they close for business on official holidays. If an employee works on a holiday, they are paid their usual rate of pay unless it is the employer’s policy to pay extra rates such as time-and-a-half. California law does not require the employer to pay any additional pay if an employee works on the day of a holiday unless it is part of their common practice or if the employee has worked in excess of a 40 hour, 8 hour per day work week. Saturdays and Sunday are also paid at the same rate as hours worked during a weekday. In addition, California law does not require its ...
Have we forgotten what Cesar Chavez, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. Has taught us? Violence is never the answer
Very nice job by the kids at the Bradford elementary school "wax museum." The wax museum is a chance for second graders to learn about history. I was very impressed as the second graders told me about Dr. Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Ghandi.

PLEASE COME AND SEE SEV BRUYN'S ORATORIO - TEACHERS OF NORWAY, TOMORROW - WEDNESDAY APRIL 9, 2014, 7:00 PM, PLACE: TRINITY CHAPEL, NEWTON BC CAMPUS, 825 CENTRE STREET! This is a fascinating true story of the resistance against the Nazis by the Teachers of Norway. It is a perfect story of the strength of non-violent resistance. Nonviolent Action: The Teachers of Norway A panel discussion will be held on nonviolent action against oppressors around the world. An oratorio will be sung about how 10, 000 teachers in Norway stopped Hitler (with nonviolent action) from putting Nazi textbooks in their schools.

Muste, Dorothy Day, Cesar Chavez, Martin Luther King in the United States as well as many other movements based on ...
Perhaps no single person in the 20th century did more to preserve, broadcast, and redistribute folk music than Pete Seeger, whose passion for politics, the environment, and humanity earned him both ardent fans and vocal enemies ever since he first began performing in the late '30s. His battle against injustice led to his being blacklisted during the McCarthy era, celebrated during the turbulent '60s, and welcomed at union rallies throughout his life. His tireless efforts regarding global concerns such as environmentalism, population growth, and racial equality earned him the respect and friendship of such political heroes as Martin Luther King, Jr., Woody Guthrie, and Cesar Chavez, and the generations of children who first learned to sing and clap to Seeger's Folkways recordings must number in the millions. Rising above all of Seeger's political ideals and his passion for authentic folk music was his clear voice and chiming banjo, both of which sang out with a clarity that rang true. Pete Seeger was born ...
There is nothing quite like putting together a montage of great historical speeches, to inspire you to make a positive impact on the world. Over the past few days I’ve watched hours of footage from Carl Sagan, Nelson Mandela, Desmond Tutu, Harvey Milk, the Dalai Lama, John Lennon, Oprah, Princess Diana, Steve Jobs, Margaret Thatcher, Reagan, Mother Teresa, Cesar Chavez, Dolores Huerta, Winston Churchill, Eleanor Roosevelt, Martin Luther King, JFK, Harvey Milk, Gandhi, Daniel Inouye and many more. for Exceptional Speaking
RIP Nelson Mandela, Che Guevara, Cesar Chavez, Martin Luther King, Dolores Huerta, Rosa Parks and all those who sacrificed for what's right. Those who have negative thoughts about these people can suck a you know what this holiday season.
My life time has been blessed with the most extraordinary events...1st satellite, space flight, moon walk, 60s' Social Revolution, the fall of the Berlin Wall, great leaders of the most profound social change...Cesar Chavez, Dr. Martin Luther King and, significantly, Nelson Mandela. A tireless soul and indomitable spirit who stood against the tyranny of hatred in order that the "many" truly included the "all!" For this and more I know my life is richer and fuller...and, truly blessed.
About the original chant from Cesar Chavez " sí se puede" that was not his original chant it was in English and Spanish " Strike,Huelga" it was never about immigration. In 1969, Chavez actually led a march to the Mexican border to protest illegal immigration, accompanied by Sen. Walter Mondale and Ralph Abernathy, whom alert readers will recognize as Martin Luther King's successor as head of the Southern Leadership Conference. Chavez demanded that the federal government close the border, routinely reported suspected illegal immigrants to immigration officials, and put his brother in charge of Minutemen-like border patrols which on more than one occasion resulted in the beatings of intruders.
If great influential people of the past were still alive who made a difference in this world like Susan B. Anthony, Helen Keller, Harriet Tubman, Charles Dickens, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Walt Disney, Michael Jackson, Jim Henson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King, Rosa Parks, Cesar Chavez, L. Frank Baum, Mark Twain, Oscar Schindler, Alex Haley, Mahatma Gandhi, Malcolm X, John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Eleanor Roosevelt, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and anyone else you can think of that is influential in our culture. I would shake all these people's hands for inspiring me to be the man I am today. As for the people like the founder of the KKK, Adolph Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Joesph Stalin. Um, Let's just say in the kindest way possible we wouldn't see eye to eye on things and I wouldn't ask them over for dinner anytime soon!
Eric Brown shared Commissioner Kenneth L. Simmons status. 22 minutes ago... What if Nat Turner decided not to revolt? what if Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglas decided not to become abolitionists? What if Rosa Parks had given up her seat? What if Fanny Lou Hamer, Martin Luther King, Stokley Carmichael,Medgar Evers, Cesar Chavez decided not to organize? For those of you that say "Im not VOTING, because its not going to matter" Think again, So many have given so much for you to have the right, which has now become your DUTY!! in order to change the game you must be in the game, don't sit on the sideline and complain!! DO SOMETHING!!! Eric Brown Says "Agree 100% in retrospect to the people who say I'm Not voting because its not going to matter...you must understand Just because the person or persons resemble the names above I doubt we are going to the polls today and casting votes A Frederick Douglas ! or A Martin Luther King NOT Stokley Carmichael and Defiantly NOT Medgar Evers. They were all Black Repu ...

And wear our Magic underwear without ridicule.
Giftism~ Change yourself to change the world. Parabola Magazine In the 1930s, Gandhi convened India’s independence movement leaders for a pivotal meeting. It wasn’t a productive meeting. Polarities widened and rifts deepened as Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel (widely known as “Iron Man of India”) threatened to quit. No resolution emerged, but Gandhi left the meeting and quietly gave up salt from his diet. A month later, the same people found a common ground for cooperation. It’s hard to say how Gandhi’s sacrifice of salt affected the outcome of that meeting, but Gandhi’s life offers repeated examples of how he believed his practices of inner transformation could create external impact. That’s a foreign technology for our modern world—change yourself to change the world. Yet, it’s prevalent in almost all the social-change giants of our time from Martin Luther King, Jr., to the Dalai Lama to Cesar Chavez. Instead of activism, we call it Giftivism. Giftivism is the practice of radically generous ...
When I was young(er), my heroes were not imaginary characters from comic books, cartoons or TV shows like the Bionic Woman, the Six Million Dollar Man, of the Incredible Hulk. My heroes were real people, human beings, flesh and blood, people like Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez, Dorothy Day, Daniel Ellsberg, Goodman, Chaney and Schwerner, Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, Eugene Debs, Mother Jones, Joe Hill, Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, and the other Abolitionists and Suffragists.
Gary Yourofsky: Please do NOT hide your passion, or your emotions. Passion and emotion get a bad rap, but that's only because people respond to both, so the unethical people in our society are always trying to mock people for being passionate and emotional. Remember, Susan B. Anthony, Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar Chavez, Nelson Mandela, Malcolm X, and many, many others, were ALL passionate and emotional about the causes they embraced.
There is just one day to celebrate all the presidents, so why is there a separate day 4 Martin Luther King and Cesar Chavez
Cesar Chavez: Longtime foe of illegal immigration By Bryan Fischer This week has been Cesar Chavez week at Boise State University, as our local campus celebrates the legacy of one of the three men to have his birthday celebrated as an official holiday in California (the other two: Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King, Jr.). Chavez, who died in 1993, is being portrayed as a champion of illegal immigration when the truth in fact is a bit different. According to a 2006 article in The American Conservative by Steve Sailer, although Chavez's union, the United Farm Workers, did manage to raise wages significantly for stoop laborers from 1965 to 1981, those gains have largely disappeared for one reason: illegal immigration. Chavez himself was a third generation American citizen and a Navy veteran. Although he has become over time virtually the patron saint of the Reconquista movement to reclaim all of the southwest for Mexico, in his prime he was an ardent opponent of illegal immigration and actively fought again ...
"He's like the Cesar Chavez or the Martin Luther King of bears. He's just looking out for other people.I mean bears."
To bring more exposure to the farm workers' struggle, Chavez organized a pilgrimage from Delano to the state capitol in Sacramento. As the striking workers marched through the Central Valley, holding an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, more people began to join the march. By the time they reached Sacramento, they were 10,000 people strong. There, at Caliornia's state capitol, Cesar Chavez gave a speech whose themes sounded very familiar. "He was talking about human rights. He was talking about the same things as Martin Luther King," said educator Rudy Acuna.
Think of the far-reaching consequences set in motion by men and women who raised their standards and acted in accordance with them, deciding they would tolerate no less. History chronicles the inspiring examples of people like Leonardo da Vinci, Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks, Albeit Einstein, Cesar Chavez, Soichiro Honda, and many others who took the magnificently powerful step of raising their standards. The same power that wasavailable to them is available to you, if you have the courage to claim it. Changing an organization, a company, a country—or a world—begins with the simple step of changing yourself. vous dit tony
From The Taos News, January 24 Do We Need Another MLK? by Vishu Magee I used to think it was Martin Luther King who changed my life when I marched with him and 22,000 others in 1965, at the hyper-idealistic age of 16. But was it really the man who moved me – or was it the moment? Over the years I realized that it was both: it’s only when an epic challenge is met by a larger-than-life individual that you get an iconic figure like Dr. King. American history is dotted with a list of great men and women who have nonviolently championed justice: Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, and a long list of feminists from Bella Abzug and Gloria Steinem to Hillary Clinton. For whatever reason – decentralized media, lack of awareness, or a persistently dismissive attitude towards minority causes – these figures remain unknown to many Americans. It could be a long time before we see another leader of King’s stature in this cou ...
Dear Friends, Some of you know that i have launched a kickstarter campaign to bring to viewers an inspiring film about Ajahn Jamnien, a thai Buddhist master and monk and spiritual activist. Here are some reflections about this subject on this Dr. Martin Luther King holiday weekend. Have a beautiful holiday! On this Dr. Martin Luther King holiday weekend when we remember a spiritual-political-social activist that many call the greatest American, I would like to call your attention to the value of spiritual activism in our society and in history. Spiritual activism, be it the social gospel and prophetic tradition of Dr. King, or the deeply Christian one of Cesar Chavez, the soul power of Gandhi the deep wisdom of Mandela or the dhammic, loving kindness of Ajahn Jamnian, are all based on perennial, fundamental truths about the human heart and spirit and a healthy, human society. Gandhi spoke of non-violence and truth, Dr. King of unarmed truth, Ajahn Jamnien of stopping the destruction without destruction .. ...
Does it seem odd to anyone else that we get Martin Luther King Day off, yet we have to work on Presidents day?
On Tuesday, January 22, 2013 at noon, celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday in Bannan 127 with Letter from Birmingham Jail: readings and discussion in remembrance of Dr. King and Cesar Chavez. Lunch will be provided. Discussion themes include just and unjust law, Civil Disobedience, and the struggle for social justice.
If people like to remember a famous politician, then they can just name a street after him or her. For example, we have named Geary Street in San Francisco after John W. Geary, San Francisco's first mayor. We named Clement Street, maybe a century ago, to recognize Supervisor Clement for his effort to extending Golden Gate Park all the way to the edge of Pacific Ocean. Not only that we named streets after politicians, but we as well named King Street in recent years after Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. In addition, we also named Cesar Chavez Street after national labor leader Cesar Chavez in the recent decade. Do you get it? If you like to remember someone important from San Francisco's past, then just name him or her a street. That's all you need to do. There is really NO need to name an entire international airport simply under one person's name. However, a better solution can be that we establish a Hall Of Remembrance to include all the important and famous people that's from San Francisco, ...
This could also be: The Legacy of Jose Rizal and the Inspiration and Evolution of Martin Luther King. Jr’s DREAM on Cesar Chavez. The Philippines’ Jose Rizal was the forerunner of Mahatma Gandhi. (-Austin Coates) "Prevent others from suffering what you have suffered, that in the future there be no brothers murdered or mothers driven to madness. Resignation is not always a virtue; it is a crime when it encourages tyrants: there are no tyrants where there are no slaves!” –Jose Rizal (Simoun to Basilio in EL FILIBUSTERISMO) “I do not mean to say we should win our freedom with the sword; the sword now counts for very little in the destinies of modern peoples but indeed let us win by deserving it, exalting individual reason and dignity, loving the just, the good, the great, even dying for it. And when a people reaches these heights, God provides the arms, and the idols and tyrants fall like a house of cards, and freedom shines in the first dawn!’ –Jose Rizal (Padre Florentino in EL FILIBUSTERISMO ...

was Gandhi mentally ill? Martin Luther King, Jr?Tolstoy? Thomas Merton?Cesar Chavez maybe some people just disagree with you?
About Mahatma Gandhi I have read alot and i believe that Gandhi preached and practiced non-violence. Could these concepts be the solution to the strife in Ghana's today? Well, i will say YES to PEACE. Gandhi, the pioneer of non-violence, believed in simplicity. His simple attire became a subject of great contemplation and ridicule in western nations. His compelling ideas braved death and continued to be a source of inspiration and emulation for great leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar Chavez, and Nelson Mandela. One of the most famous works inspired by Gandhi was the 1982 Richard Attenborough movie in which Ben Kingsley starred as Gandhi. If you have watched the movie you will definitely remember a Gandhi quote or two. What made Gandhi unique? Why is he one of the most famous figures in recent international history? Life. There is more to life than simply increasing its speed. "As soon as we lose the moral basis, we cease to be religious. There is no such thing as religion over-riding morality. . ...

People I wish I could have seen: Ghandi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Nelson Mandela. People I was lucky enough to see in the past: Cesar Chavez. Today, I was able to see and hear the Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi when she made a stop in Los Angeles. Don't you love it when a rare heroine comes along who will stand up to a ruthless government and come out the winner?
So many of you with whom I communicate on FB have prime real estate in your archives, papers, file cabinets and shopping bags in closets. I’m urging you to prepare them for or donate them to a library, historical society or organization capable of preserving them. I continue to work with major archival repositories across the country to ensure that collections, libraries and boxes stuffed with crucial historical information are contributed to the ongoing historical and cultural “evolution” of the country and world. Just think about the stories we wouldn’t know if we did not have the papers of presidents, poets and activists including Thomas Jefferson, Gwendolyn Brooks, Cesar Chavez, Bella Abzug, William Patterson, Studs Terkel, Martin Luther King, Jr. and thousands of others to support the telling of the stories that shaped/misshaped this country. The next time you want to give your parents or treasured friend a gift, how about a gift certificate for the services of an archivist to work with t ...

How do democrats support someone like Joe Biden? His condescending political rhetoric today is a slap in the face to the great Martin Luther King Jr and other Civil Rights greats like Cesar Chavez.
What is the history of boycotts? The term originated in Ireland in 1780 when English estate manager Charles Cunningham Boycott was "boycotted" by famine-threatened Irish farmers for refusing to lower rents. Since then, boycotts have become an important part of American history, used to protest everything from government involvement in industries to unfair labor practices. Following the Stamp Act in 1765, American colonists in Boston, Philadelphia, and New York began a boycott of British goods that lasted through the Revolutionary War. A boycott strategy was adopted by trade unions during the labor movement of the late 1800s. German goods were boycotted by the American Jewish community in the 1930s and 1940s, and the Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott organized by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 1950s became a defining moment of the Civil Rights Movement. The United Farm Workers boycott of table grapes, begun by Cesar Chavez in the 1960s, and the recent boycott of Nestle over the marketing of infant formul ...
Malcolm X's birthday was yesterday.Isn''t it amazing how much of his message still is relevant in this day and time...When we look at our current political situations and some of the struggles that are still going on, we see why we need to continue to read the words of leaders like Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Huey Newton, Cesar Chavez, and others even know.Here is one of his famous quotes, we declare our rights on this earth...to be human beings, to be respected as human beings, to be given the rights of a human beings in this society, on this earth, in this day,which we intend to bring into existence by any means necessary...Or this quote I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I am a human being, first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole. These words definitely sound relevant even know...and I'm thinking Malcolm might even think that the Tea Party and ultra conservatism might be a case of Chickens C ...
