Yesterday at the NCMC (National Chicano Moratorium Committee) planning committee, my motion to invite Kiko Salazar of the National Ramsey Muniz Defense Committee was passed unanimously by consensus.  The basics of what Ramsey Muniz’s case is all about is at:

The NCMC Commemoration, as usual, will deal with the unfortunately business as usual aspects of the United States (E.E.U.U.) that spawned the Moratorium over four (4) decades ago:

  • Racism, Sexism, and all other ideologies of oppression
  • War, then in Vietnam, now in Afghanistan
  • Systematic discrimination in education, health care, employment, and virtually every other sphere of human existence

There are many other things to commemorate on August 25….the liberation of Paris from the Nazis in World War II, Uruguayan Independence from Brazil (a fight during which Garibaldi first formed his “Red Shirts,” who would go on to fight for Italian unification and independence), the beginning of the Belgian Revolution for independence from the Netherlands, and the birth of two famous American private detectives, Allan Pinkerton and Jan B. Tucker.  On August 25, 2012, the place to be and the place to commemorate those who fought for those who’ve been imprisoned for, and those who died for Chicano liberation will be at Ruben Salazar Park, 3864 Whittier Blvd, East Los Angeles.

About Jan Tucker

The Detectives Diary is an innovative tool combining Private Investigation and Journalism. In 1984, Steve Harvey's Los Angeles Times "Around the Southland" Column entitled Jan Tucker's program of providing low-cost "Opposition Research" services to indigent and working class candidates for public office, "Take Cover: Hired Mudslinger Rides into Town." A 1996 Los Angeles Times article by Henry Chu carried a sub-headline identifying Tucker as a "P.R. Guru." In November 2012, Tucker became Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a commentator for Black Talk Radio. As a private investigator since 1979 and a former First Vice President of Newspaper Guild Local 69, Tucker takes these skills to a new level in the pages of the Detectives Diary with insightful and unique exposures and analysis of history and current events.
