A contingent of Brown Berets were part of a procession this morning down Whittier Boulevard in East Los Angeles to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Chicano Moratorium, a series of Vietnam-era civil rights and anti-war demonstrations that ended in violence, including the death of L.A. Times journalist Ruben Salazar in the former Silver Dollar bar in East Los Angeles. Photographer Aurelio José Barrera said about 50 people walked in the procession. The procession traveled to Salazar Park, where a panel discussion was scheduled at the Ruben Salazar Senior Center.
