The right of political secession (self-determination) for the Chicano nation. "Fan the Flames." The August 29th Movement (or August Twenty-Ninth Movement, ATM), was a Chicano communist organization (Marxist-Leninist, or ML) that lasted from 1974 to 1978. In New Mexico in 1976 they were responsible having the second printing of Elizabeth "Betita" Martinez' seminal book _450 Years of Chicano History_ rejected and shredded due to disagreement of how ATM saw the books portrayal of the Chicano National Question.[LMC]
