Bayan USA upholds boycott against Self-Help Graphics & Art
Yesterday, after sending the open letter to Bayan USA and posting it on our website, we soon received word directly from Bayan USA that they would honor the Defend Boyle Heights-initiated boycott against Self-Help Graphics & Art and pull out from the event. Bayan USA stated that they did not know about the boycott but once they were made aware of it they immediately rescinded the Centro CSO invitation to the “48th Chicano Moratorium Commemoration.”
We are appreciative of their commitment in respecting the wishes of the masses of Boyle Heights, in standing in solidarity with the militant anti-gentrificaion mass resistance, and seeing the contradiction in being anti-imperialist while aligning with gentrifiers who displace the proletariat and allied classes in Boyle Heights, in the oppressed Chicano Nation.
