Diary of a guerrilla by Ramón Pérez( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""A roadblock," the driver said, making a gesture that showed that he felt it was a waste of time. "From time to time they're here, part of something called the Condor Plan, or so the newspapers say. They're looking for drugs."" "I felt fear in the pit of my stomach. I inhaled deeply, exhaling with an open mouth, quietly. I took Magdalena's hand. She didn't seem nervous." "I didn't have any guns with me, but in my bag were propaganda leaflets and books. I was sure that they'd ask questions about them - and just how far they'd question me, I didn't know. I thought about what they might do to Magdalena." "The soldiers went to the back of our pickup. The campesinos were showing them what they carried. An officer came up to the window of the pickup, telling the driver to step out. He did. His movement gave me a couple of moments alone with Magdalena." ""Don't come with me," I whispered to her. "Tell them that you're with the driver." Then I glanced at her; she understood my plan."--Jacket

If white kids die : memories of a civil rights movement volunteer by Dick J Reavis( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If White Kids Die describes his gradual maturation as he encountered the other side of legally enforced racism. Harassed by police for being in a white neighborhood with a black coworker, arrested for vagrancy, and prevented from driving by arcane residency laws, Reavis came to understand the frustration with "The System" that fueled the Civil Rights Movement. At the same time, he saw the infighting and strategizing within the Movement that prevented it from living up to his ideals. In the end, he concludes, "The System made some concessions to our protests, but its power was never trumped. ... But history has not ended, and deep in my heart, I do believe that we - virtually the whole human race - will overcome someday.""--Jacket
