Default RIP Reies Lopez Tijerina

From Armando Cepeda:

"Prayer request: Sunday, January 18, 2015, 7:30 a.m. I just received a call from Esperaza Tijerina in El Paso, Texas, the wife of Chicano icon, Reies Lopez Tijerina. She informed me that 88 year-old Reies was rushed to Providence hospital yesterday, and is hooked up to life sustaining machines. He seems to be close to the end. She asked me to post the news. Please pass this along to others. Thank you."

*update* He passed away today.

RIP. I first learned of him through a PBS special and how he went at it with Texas Rangers over land grants. Dude was really about his shit.
