On Feb. 3, a group of people gathered at Chicano Park in San Diego, Calif. to have a "Patriot Picnic".
Their aim was to show "white Americans" were not welcomed in the historical monument and community park, which they consider "anti-American" for its murals featuring Mexican and Latin American political and social leaders, and raise up a U.S. flag. They want the murals to be removed along with a statue of Mexican revolutionary Emiliano Zapata.
But the park is actually the product of a decades-long struggle by the Chicano community in San Diego. Local residents were ready to resist the aggression.
At the end, a small group of people attending the "Patriot Picnic 2.0" was driven away by hundreds of locals in support of Chicano Park.
