Rest in Power Sal Castro, iconic Chicano long-time activist and teacher who was famously known for his role as a teacher involved in the East Los Angeles Chicano High School Walkouts (or just Chicano Blowout) of 1968, in protest of education inequality in Los Angeles, the Vietnam War, and in solidarity with the ongoing Chicano Movement. The Blowout spread through the city until it was violently suppressed by the LAPD. Castro, along with members of the Brown Berets was arrested for conspiracy to disrupt public schools and disturbing the peace, but the charges were dropped in 1972. 
Long live the Chicano Movement and the Brown Berets!
