Paula Crisostomo: It's like the Montgomery bus boycott!
[chatter amongst the group]
Paula Crisostomo: It's like Montgomery! You know Dr. King got everybody to boycott buses, right?
Vickie Castro: Yeah! And sessions and boycotting - great!
Tanya Mount: But this about schools, okay?
Paula Crisostomo: So, let's boycott!
David Sanchez: The schools?
Paula Crisostomo: Why not?
Harry Gamboa: That's completely different!
Paula Crisostomo: No, it's not! It's exactly the same. We get treated like second class citizens!
Tanya Mount: Guys, are we talking about buses here or what?
Paula Crisostomo: Guys, our schools are the back of the bus!
Sal Castro: It's a beautiful day to be a Chicano!
Moctesuma Esparza: Boycott the schools?
Paula Crisostomo: Yes!
Harry Gamboa: That's not a good idea!
Moctesuma Esparza: Oh it isn't?
Harry Gamboa: No! You wanna know why? Because they don't give a *shit* if these kids go to school or not!
Moctesuma Esparza: Actually, they do! ADA - Average Daily Attendance!
Paula Crisostomo: They don't get paid if we don't go to school!
Paula Crisostomo: Hey, how'd it go?
Bobby Verdugo: This is what they told me: " You have a big future ahead of you."
Paula Crisostomo: That's good!
Bobby Verdugo: In the art world.
Yoli Rios: Yeah, industrial arts.
Bobby Verdugo: Yeah, nice way to say car mechanic.
Yoli Rios: He told me secretary. There's no nice way to say that.
Paula Crisostomo: Well, didn't he offer junior college?
Paula Crisostomo: The police know who we are, they know what we're up to. That's why they closed down our pina... Somebody here's talking to them.
Moctesuma Esparza: On behalf of all the outside agitators in this room, I'd like to send a special message to the informant... Que viva la raza!
Moctesuma Esparza: Que viva la raza!
