Latino Quote Of The Day by Jose “Cha Cha” Jimenez

Chacha"If the People of El Salvador can ask for self-determination, if the People of Nicaragua can ask for self-determination, if the People of Ireland can ask for self-determination, if the People of Poland can ask for self-determination, if Black People in America can stand up and demand self-determination, then Puerto Ricans demand self-determination."

– Jose "Cha Cha" Jimenez (Puerto Rican), founder of the Young Lords in Chicago, Illinois in 1968.
