Hack #5

chicpark4 Today in large lecture, Professor Putman talked about the Chicano Movement. Here in San Diego we have our own Chicano Park in Barrio Logan by the Coronado Bridge. For this specific mural, the people living there wanted their neighborhood to be rezoned. The translation of “Varrio Si, Yonkes No!” is “Neighborhoods yes, junkyards no!” The people wanted the junkyards to be moved so they could keep their neighborhoods clean from car parts falling into their backyards.
