Book Banning To Be Followed By Book Burning?
          In January of 2012, the fascist Board of Education in Tucson, Arizona banned the entire Xicano & Ethnic Studies curriculum from the school district. To prove their power, they sent goon squads into classrooms and pulled the books out of the hands of students and off of library and classroom shelves, then boxed them up and sent them to a secret location. Particular attention was given to seven books, with the full list adding up to 50 written works that apparently threaten the anti-democracy side – plutocrats, oligarchs, the One Percent – in the escalating real-life Class War here in America.
          Various responses are already occurring, including the Librotraficante movement to purchase the banned books elsewhere and smuggle them back into Arizona.

          This website has coded bare Amazon links for the Seven Major Offenders. A further expansion, with book covers and multiple editions and other details, for these and several other books 'Banned In Tucson' has been coded on Spirit of America Bookstore's America's Ethnic Authors Page.
