There have been student walkouts in Dallas, too. Whatever it is they think they're accomplishing is beyond me.
The fact that La Voz de Aztlán and other such groups think their cause is helped by an anti-Israel stance (there is a tremendous amount of pro-Islam/pro-Palestinian literature on the page) also seems odd and fruitless at first.
On the other hand, they're both fighting for an invented state, making claims to land they think should be theirs, and seeking a scapegoat to avoid addressing their community's internal problems.
