On the U.S. West coast, a largely indigenous, immigrant workforce does grueling labor to grow the fruits and vegetables that land on grocery shelves. Theirs is a struggle against poverty, sexual harassment and demeaning treatment. Familias Unidas por la Justicia from Washington State has allied with Mexican farm workers to launch an international boycott of Driscoll’s, the world’s largest berry company. Learn how you can support this inspiring cross-border struggle!
The short film "Campasino" is followed by commentary from Chicano union activist Moisés Montoya who worked the California fields with his family.
