About Palante

Palante (1970 - 1976) was a bilingual newspaper published by the Young Lords Party. The group was founded in July 1969 as the New York chapter of the Young Lords Organization and renamed itself in May 1970 after separating from the Chicago Young Lords. In July 1972, the Young Lords Party became the Puerto Rican Revolutionary Workers Organization. Palante focused on the Puerto Rican independence movement, the oppression of Puerto Ricans and other Latinos in the United States, and global struggles for liberation.
