Stand with San Quintín Farmworkers! #BoycottDriscollsContinues

Rally and Protest at Driscoll's Berry Store and Distribution Center
Saturday, October 15 at 1pm
1750 San Juan Road. Aromas, CA

On October 15 there is a call for an International Day of Action to support the 80,000 farmworkers and their families in San Quintín Valley, Mexico with the message that the boycott of Driscoll's Berries continues full force until there is a union contract.

Currently, farmworkers toil 12 to 15 hours a day in the fields for as little as $6/day. Many are not provided social security, health insurance or any type of job security. For more information on the working conditions in San Quintín and the farmworkers struggle, see: http://regeneracionradio.org/Micrositio/04-The-San-Quintin-Rebellion/

Join us outside of Driscoll's Berries' headquarters to send a message to the public that the #BoycottDriscollsContinues and a message to Driscoll's that we will not stop until the demands of the farmworkers are met in the form of a collective union contract. Present at the demonstration will be a spokesperson from San Quintín.

Bring signs, noisemakers, and energy! Spread the word!
