Cathy Murphy - Cesar Chavez, Dogs (mid 1970's)

Happy Cesar Chavez Day!

Chavez with his dogs Huelga (“strike”) and Boycott. He originally got them simply as guard dogs, but over time the relationship deepened. Boycott went everywhere with himand he gave credit to both of them for leading him to become a vegetarian and animal rights activist. Photo by Cathy Murphy (mid-1970’s).

Our struggle is not easy. Those who oppose our cause are rich and powerful, and they have many allies in high places. We are poor. Our allies are few. But we have something the rich do not own. We have our own bodies and spirits and the justice of our cause as our weapons.
