Boycott Driscoll's Berries Demonstration In Watsonville California USA 5-14-2016
Continuing to put presure on Driscoll's & Sakuma Farms to give the farmworkers a union contract with decent pay and better working conditions in the fields!
May 14, 2016 a global day of action in solidarity with the farmworkers in San Quintín, Mexico and the farmworkers at Sakuma Bros in Washington State. They are fighting horrific inhumane working conditions that Driscoll's so far has refused to do anything about or even acknowledge. Today the Watsonville Brown Berets and members of the Santa Cruz County Driscoll's Boycott Committee were at the Watsonville Plaza and held a protest on the public sidewalk about these inhumane working conditions and to spread awareness to consumers about the ongoing international boycott of Driscoll's berries. Don't buy Driscoll's berries until union contracts are signed!
