There is a severe need for accountability within the Chicano Movement in Tucson especially surrounding the preservation of Ethnic Studies. Our bodies and children are sacred and need to be protected from domestic violence and all other forms of gendered violence. We as an online community will not allow anyone to be further used as a scapegoat for voicing their opinions on this zine regarding the bullshit women go through in this community. If you do not like what you read on this site, do not read it and simply face this dialogue when you are ready – TEZCATLIPOCA! malintZINE will continue and does not need anyone’s approval.
