Meanwhile, back in the 90's, Nunez was just a bit more radical than that video might suggest. On this video (youtube.com/watch?v=FgbCB8QlQWw) from an anti-Proposition 187 rally in Los Angeles:
Fabian Nunez is seen on stage introducing Juan Jose Gutierrez of the SEIU to make a speech to the crowd. To the right stands a Mexican trumpet band. Behind the stage is a large colonial-era American flag, signifying a U.S. at its original 13-state size. After Gutierrez's speech, the band performs a droning rendition of the American national anthem while Nunez, Gutierrez and Kevin de Leon stand on stage talking to each other. After the U.S. anthem is finished, with chants of "Mexico, Mexico" from the crowd, the band begins an enthusiastic performance of the Mexican national anthem - and then Nunez, de Leon and Gutierriez all snap to attention and salute.
