A Poem of La Raza
Por Epifanio Camacho (English)
I'm going to tell you now about the fight of the huelguistas.
It's the cry of the poor - We work in the fields
For long enough we've stood the slavery of being sold.
The greedy ranchers like a bunch of dictators
We work and work in the fields, Trying and fighting so hard.
Our homes are always full of sorrow.
In contrast, these ranchers, Owners of land and life
But finally out of all this oppression, One man rose in Delano.
He raised the cry of rebellion, Justice and... Viva la Huelga!
