In Memory of raulsalinas

The following note is from Regina:

It is with great sadness I must inform all of you about the passing of our elder, teacher, father, chicanindio, and poeta revolutionario raúlrsalinas.

For the past couple of years, raúl has been struggling with his health. Unfortunately, his body just could not take the strain and was deteriorating at a rapid pace. Even though he has left this realm and it's a great loss para nuestro pueblo, his spirit is strong and lives on in all of us.

raul was a great friend and brother to Trino and I and we will keep his meomory and legacy in our hearts forever. I've included a few links about raul.

This is a video raulsalinas performing at Ruta Maya, San Antonio, for Trinidad Sanchez'memorial gathering:
