"This was an AWESOME morning, we woke up and drove out to 9 different fields to say GRACIAS to los Campesinos! My heart feels proud! My heart feels grateful to everyone especially the youth and youngsters who joined us. Que Viva los Campesinos!!!" -RV

"It was great to see the happy faces of the hard working gente en los campos when we all drove up to thank them for their service... not just during this time of the pandemic but always... they show up no matter the weather, no matter the illness going around, they show up and we all need to thank a farm worker for harvesting the food we all eat!" -JV

"Vivan los campesinos! Tambien son trabajadores esenciales. Ponen su vida a riesgo todos los dias para proveer nuestros alimentos. Porque sin comida no hay vida!"-EC

Everyone in California, and actually the entire nation, and even other parts of the world benefit from farm labor in Watsonville. Muchisimas Gracias!

It' s great to see that more people solidarize with our hard working people. Many immigrants have not seen their families for years, because of the racist immigration policies implemented by both democrats and republicans. We hope this strenghtens the struggle to demand legalization for all immigrants. The great majority of us know there is no such thing as "the american dream", we just want to work and go back to our families. Its time to organize a real struggle to benefit immigrants, and the working class in general.

Farmworkers are underpaid and underinsured. If anyone disagrees, get out there and work!

Hi there,

I'd like to get permission from the owner of these images to be used on Univision Fresno's platforms. We'd like to write an article/TV story about this beautiful event. You can send me an email to varaya [at] univision.net.

Thank you,

Órale! I would love to know who organized this caravan and how I can get in touch with them. I’d also love to get involved. I’m only on the other side of Mt. Madonna and can offer strong social media presence for marketing any future events.
We are 100% volunteer and depend on your participation to sustain our efforts!
