Liberty and equality. Two basic principles written into the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America on the 4th of July of 1776. But this promise has not been true to many Hispanics that have fought for this country from its inception until the present. This is today’s theme on “In a Few Words.”

Liberty and equality. Two basic principles written into the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America on the 4th of July of 1776. But this promise has not been true to many Hispanics that have fought for this country from its inception until the present. This is today’s theme on “In a Few Words.”

As happened with African Americans and other minority groups before, Hispanics hope to receive equal treatment one day. Not even those that have fought for the country have avoided this injustice given that some have been deported after completing their service and becoming disabled. Bernardo de Galvez, a Spanish national, is one of the first forgotten soldiers. This man organized a brigade in 1780 primarily with Cubans to fight against the British. George Washington, the country’s first president, named a town in Texas, Galveston, in his honor, yet history books omit his and the Cubans’ participation.

Even sadder are the recent cases of deported Mexican and Central American soldiers after completing tours with American forces. One example is of brothers Valente and Jesus Valenzuela, Vietnam War veterans. The Valenzuela brothers were sons of an American woman and naturalized father, yet were born in Chihuahua, Mexico, and after some trouble with the law, they were notified that they had never been registered as citizens of the United States, thus eliminating their rights to vote.

More unjust is the case of Mexican Fabian Rebolledo who was recruited by the US Army in 1996, was trained for more than 3 years in the military, completed skydiving school and specialized in arms and explosives search. When he enlisted in 1997, Fabian was promised citizenship in exchange, something that excited him since he would become the first citizen in his family. In 2010, after living more than 22 years in the United States, he was deported for a minor offense.

Many veterans have been repatriated without receiving compensation or treatment for injuries contracted during war. This is the reality of heroes for whom the promise of liberty and equality was not true. This is Gloria Arjona. Until next week.

12, 14, 16 hour workdays. North American factories made huge profits off cheap labor. Badly paid migrants, women and children that never had a day off.

“May 1st will be the rebellion.”

On May 1st, 1886, a wave of protests shook the United States. Many factories were paralyzed. In Chicago, these factories were closed, the ports as well and the workers in their Sunday’s Best filled Michigan Ave.

“8 hours to work, 8 hours to rest and 8 to do as we like!”

Around the country, workers demanded 8-hour workdays. In Chicago, 80 thousand protested. In the McCormick factory, there was a battle. The police fired into the crowd where 6 lost their lives and dozens were wounded. Labor leaders called for a new reunion in Hay Market plaza on May 4th. It was a rainy day but in it Agustus Spies, a German reporter, spoke to the crowd. Albert Parsons, American worker, and the anarchist leaders also spoke. Suddenly, heavily armed police officers arrived at the plaza. The captain demanded the crowd dispersed but they answered that their meeting was legal and pacific.

A bomb cut the silence and exploded within the lines of the officers. One died and others were wounded. Immediately, the rest opened fire on the crowd, 38 died and more than 200 were wounded. The leaders were arrested and their publication materials destroyed. Chicago was in a state of emergency. The newspapers called for the heads of the subversives. Witnesses declared they saw protesters throw the bomb into the police crowd.  There was a rumor that this was a foreigner conspiracy since many of the detained were Germans.

“Give these men a proper punishment. Hang them! Save our institutions and our society.”

The verdict was not surprising: The death penalty for Agustus Spies, Albert Parsons, Adolph Fischer, George Engles, Louis Lingg Michael Schwab and Samuel Fielden.

“What was our crime? Fighting for a social system with people over profit.”

There were protests in the United States and around the world, but to no avail. The execution was scheduled for Novemeber 11, 1887.

As the date neared, Fielden and Schwab were given a life terms instead. Lingg was found dead in his cell the day before execution. In the Chicago prison patio, there were four nooses. The condemned marched into the patio to the sound of the Marseille. It was noon.

As he was hooded, Agustus Spies spoke one last time. “There will be a time when our silence will be more eloquent than that of the voices of the ones being hung today.”

The ropes tightened, quieting forever these men. They were buried in the Van Heilm cemetery. On their graves, there are always red roses.

Years later in 1893, the new Illinois governor allowed the process to be inspected. Judge Everheart proved that the witnesses had been bought, that the prosecutor had personally picked the jury and that the bomb had been tossed on the same captain’s orders.

In France, May 1st was approved by Socialists as International Workers Day in memory of the Chicago Martyrs.
