I was in Med School during one of the grape strikes. I was picketing a Safeway in suburban St Louis for the UFW when I was accosted by a huge Teamster’s goon (without his baseball bat). At 6’1” 185 I was dwarfed by this guy. He started to threaten me and a small crowd gathered. I was sort of a jerk, since I had so many witnesses, asked him what he was afraid of, the truth? and is this a free country so I can express my opinion? He called me a hippie (short haired med student - admittedly I did have on a pair of California huaraches) and went away. Much to my relief.
Viva la memoria de Cesar!
