JOIN US. There are many Brown Beret groups out there today, and most do great things in the community. The difference with us is, our history, values, track record. We don't lie about what we do like others have, and our soldiers never retire. THERE IS NO RETIRING FROM THE CHICANO MOVEMENT. Any real activist will agree. We have members who have been shot, imprisoned, have had major health problems due to age or at the hands of police, slain by police, and we never quit. WE ARE the oldest Brown Beret Organization and have always kept the Brown Beret name alive. We are the only Brown Berets who have been around for 40 years and we have the proof to back it up, we are not looking to brag, we only wish for young revolutionaries who have just joined the movement to know the facts. We have had many achievements and victories over the years, but we are far from finished. We are currently setting up chapters all over Aztlan and looking to recruit quality soldados and soldadas for our ranks. We are not like other groups, should you decide to inquire about joining, you will need to earn every stripe and patch. You will not be given anything that is not earned. WE WANT REAL SOLDIERS. We have and will always be fighting for our Raza as long as it takes! The Brown Berets de Aztlan are not an internet based group, so if you like what you've read then contact us for more info. QUE VIVA LA LUCHA!!!!!

In a recent New Times online town hall, Stauffer was asked whether he thought he'd have a better shot at beating Arpaio if he ran as an Independent. At the time, he dismissed the idea, saying "unfortunately, the sheriff's race is a partisan race. I have been a registered Republican since I was 18 years old and changing parties now would inject an undesirable political aspect to my campaign and distract from the real and pressing issues facing the MCSO."
He's since changed his tune, now saying "It's a smart move for a number of reasons, mostly because Stauffer will now leave the decision up to Maricopa County's entire electorate, as opposed to only Independents and the far-right-wing-nuts who would undoubtedly support Arpaio in a Republican primary.
However, America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" is still a pretty popular guy in the Valley (despite the millions (and millions) of dollars in taxpayer money that have been pissed away defending the MCSO from seemingly endless lawsuits, the humiliating publicity stunts, and the overall culture of corruption at the MCSO that he's been allowed to develop for nearly 20 years). Not to mention the $6 million he's got to fuel his (county-level) campaign.
The odds still seem stacked against Stauffer, but we want to know what you think: can Mike Stauffer be the one to finally convince Maricopa County voters that "it's time for a new sheriff?"
After we get rid of Arpaio, We'd still need to get rid of Russel Pierce and Jan Brewer. The problems for the Indigenous peoples of Aztlan are far from resolved. Its true that if you get rid of one "bad seed" that someone will just plant another to replace him. With the growing number of racist organizations making Arizona their new home, it will be an increasingly difficult job to have power over Arizona.

As anti-Wall Street protests spread from New York to other U.S. cities, the activists beginning their third week inside a Lower Manhattan park urged participants to dress up as "corporate zombies" on Monday.Over the weekend, budding copycat movements spread across the country, with smaller-scale protests planned via online social-networking sites. Protesters held sizable gatherings in Chicago, Boston and Los Angeles. In other cities, like San Francisco and Pittsburgh, protests were smaller or existed only in a planning stage.
Organizers told the Associated Press that they would hold an anti-police brutality protest on the steps of City Hall, as well as a rally in support of union workers outside Sotheby's auction house on the Upper East Side. New York police arrested hundreds of demonstrators Saturday after a group blocked traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge.
A website, occupytogether.org, lists groups that are offshoots of the New York protest. Activists have begun organizing outside the U.S., including in Prague, Melbourne and Montreal. A map of the country displayed in the Manhattan park held by demonstrators identified 21 places where other protests were organized.
In New York, the protesters initially set out to occupy Wall Street but were rebuffed by police. Instead, the group set up in a nearby park, keeping the "Occupy Wall Street" moniker. The spread to other cities appears largely organic—the protests don't have a central organizer—and the idea came from a Canadian magazine and grew on social media websites.
Those protesting in New York have been circulating a list of grievances, most of which are aimed at corporations that they say are too powerful and often unethical. Among the complaints: bank executives received "exorbitant" bonuses not long after receiving taxpayer bailouts and companies have "poisoned the food supply through negligence" and "continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate better pay and safer working conditions.""From 2006-2009 I owned a business with 12 employees," reads one, superimposed over a photo of a man and his young son, both smiling. "I closed my doors in 2009. I lost my home in 2010. I lived in my truck for six months. Now I rent a tiny room. I have no health insurance."It's unclear how long the protests will last, or whether they will take hold in the other cities on par with the New York protests. Like the initial stage of the New York protest, much of the activity in the offshoot cities is still taking place online on Facebook.
Many of the protesters are young. Joblessness seems to be a persistent theme. A blog that has become popular has pictures of people's faces next to stories of economic woe and messages of support for the protesters.
Nathaniel Glosser, a 46-year-old Pittsburgh writer, is helping organize what he calls "the Occupy Pittsburgh movement.""After several days of searching on the Internet, I found that there were several hundred people who had signed up on the Facebook group and then I just jumped in with both feet," Mr. Glosser said. "Most of the people who started this have very little organizing experience."
Mr. Glosser, a veteran of anti-war marches, said he was inspired by what he saw in New York and started looking for people online who might do something like it in Pittsburgh.
Mr. Glosser's group plans to meet at a Unitarian church on Wednesday and plans to hold its first rally on Oct. 15.
In Los Angeles, hundreds marched on City Hall on Saturday on the first day of protests. In San Francisco, about two dozen people camped out Sunday afternoon outside the Federal Reserve branch. Some had tents. Others played guitars. Their posters said: "Arrest the fat cats."Organizers shouted instructions through a small orange cone: No violence, be friendly to police, continue "the revolution."
In Chicago, protesters occupied a narrow sidewalk outside the city's branch of the Federal Reserve Bank. They've been there around the clock for 10 consecutive days. At 3 p.m. Sunday, more than 100 gathered for an organizational meeting that was labeled the general assembly in which anyone can participate—a hallmark of the protests.
The protesters were diverse in race, gender, age and dress. Among the headwear in the crowd were beanies, ushankas, do-rags, fedoras, bandanas and one green helmet. Some wore boots, others were barefoot. Some offered handrolled cigarettes out of small vintage cases. Many gave their Twitter handle in addition to their name when introducing themselves.Protesters in Chicago are putting the New York group's grievances to a vote, amending some and adopting others as is.
James Cox, a 25-year-old waitress, discovered the movement on Twitter and showed up on the second day when there were just seven people. She has now slept on the sidewalk for a week and has become and organizer, keeping track of donated food and water.
"We definitely stand in solidarity," said Mark Banks, a 30-year-old unemployed biochemist and Occupy Chicago spokesman. "But we're employing a very careful, inclusive process to make sure what they're trying to say is what we're trying to say"
"We are part of a global and spreading movement," shouted Micah Philbrook, a 33-year-old actor with shaggy white hair who serves a press liaison for the Occupy Chicago movement. To amplify the speakers' words, the crowd repeated each sentence.
"I'm a semi-disabled 58 yr old granny with little or no transportation but whenever it is decided on date & place for OUR rally, I will do my darnedest to be there!" wrote a woman name Marilyn McCarty on the Facebook page for a Birmingham, Ala., occupation, which does not yet have a set date or time.
