Organizer/AuthorIn support of the Beach Flats Garden
In solidarity with the Beach Flats Jardín & Familias Unidas por la Justicia

In Santa Cruz, the jardíneros of the Beach Flats Community Garden are at risk of losing long-cultivated subsistence farming space due to the profit-motivated actions of the Seaside (Boardwalk) Company.

In Washington and Baja California, Mesoamerican Indigenous farmworkers have organized independent unions, calling for an international boycott of Santa Cruz County based Driscoll’s Berries. As they fight to end poverty wages, slave-like working and living conditions, child labor and violent repression of their movement, they also envision a reorganization of food systems based upon workers cooperatives, sustainable relationships with land, and economies based on needs rather than profit.

In the spirit of International Workers Day, let’s join together to express our solidarity with these critical struggles, alongside our own dreams for a different kind of world not based on capitalist exploitation.

Bring signs, banners, and energy!
