A Driscoll's Boycott Action is being organized to happen in front of Safeway in Watsonville CA on July 2nd, 2016 between the hours of 2:00 and 4:00 PM. The Watsonville Brown Berets have been putting pressure on Safeway to acknowledge the international boycott on Driscoll's berries and drop Driscoll's Berries from their shelves and switch to a responsible berry company. Farmworkers in San Quintin and Washington State are fighting a historic fight for union contracts with Driscoll's to end the horrific working conditions and exploitation in the fields. Community of Watsonville and surrounding communities please come join us in Solidarity with farmworkers!

Exposing Driscoll's for what they are. A union busting, slave wage corporation which exploits our people in the fields. Racism, sexism, workers abuse, slave wages, no wages, modern day child slavery, pesticide and hazardous chemicals being exposed to the people who pick your food. Sexual assaults and rape in the fields to the women. Inadequate housing, inadequate bathroom breaks and bathrooms. No water for field workers. No health services when it comes to medical, dental and vision. Farm workers voices are being oppressed with violence. Boycott Driscoll's! Vote with your money. We don't want your blood berries! Driscoll's exploitation border to border.
