video Michael Garcia, Watsonville Brown Berets (Attachment On: Driscoll’s Runs Away At Watsonville Earth Day) (video/mp4 7.4MB) by Bradley Allen
[ Video courtesy Watsonville Brown Berets. 1:34 minutes ] The video above and transcription below are of Michael Garcia of the Watsonville Brown Berets speaking near the Driscoll’s booth at Earth Day in Ramsey Park. Michael Garcia: We have children who are working in the fields right now as we speak in San Quintín, Baja California. Children should not be working in the fields. They should be in school getting an education. But instead Driscoll’s is exploiting our people by keeping them impoverished, with poverty wages, slave wages, even no wages. Farmworkers have alleged they’re not even getting paid for the work that they do. Especially the women. And for the children, it’s modern day child slavery. They are forced to work in the field with no pay. And they shouldn’t even be there in the first place. Like I said, they should be in school getting an education, not living under Driscoll’s poverty wages where they pay the average farmworker in San Quintín $7 a day for a 12 hour workday. There’s an international boycott on Driscoll’s berries, as we speak, in solidarity with the farmworkers in San Quintín, Baja California and Washington state. As consumers we can change these conditions, we can say no more Driscoll’s berries until Driscoll’s actually represents the farmworkers in a good way and lets them unionize, and gives them their rights to a living wage. Not so they’re stuck in the fields working their whole life for poverty wages. They get no benefits, no medical, no dental. You only see the people that work for the corporation, in the offices, the buildings, that never pick berries one day of their life. Yeah they get the benefits, they get the nice cool offices, they get the clean water. But what do the farmworkers get when they get water? Farmworkers get no water or they get dirty water which is contaminated with the pesticides that they’re using in the fields for these berries which is giving them fatal diseases in the long run once they get older, leaving their children with no mother, no father, because they’re dying at such an early age due to the chemicals and pesticides. And I see that Driscoll’s wants to start to pack up now and start to leave this event, because we’re out here spreading awareness to consumers about the exploitation that’s happening under their brand, under Sakuma Bros., under Driscoll’s, and they have the power to stop this, but they choose not to stop this, they choose to put human lives under profits.

Necesito la ayuda de ustedes para estar boicoteando la fruta de las compañías de Sakuma y Driscoll's. Es lo mismo con los jornaleros trabajando en el Valle de San Quintín en Baja California México. Están sufriendo como nosotros en el estado de Washington. No dan breaks, no dan lonche tampoco allá en el Valle de San Quintín. Es la misma compañía -- Driscoll's. La compania Driscoll's es el más grande distribuidor (de fresas y moras) del mundo. Pero necesito ayuda en hacer boicot a esa compañía. Doy gracias a todo ustedes. Muchas gracias. - - - - - Translation: Lázaro Matamoros in Salinas Good afternoon friends. My name is Lázaro Matamoros. I come from the state of Washington.

I need your help, to be boycotting the fruit of Sakuma and Driscoll’s. The same thing is happening with the workers in the San Quintín Valley of Baja California, Mexico. It is the same there.

video Video of murder of Laquan McDonald by Chicago cop Jason Van Dyke (video/mp4 16.0MB) by FTP
Chicago police just released the dashcam video of their own Jason Van Dyke shooting and killing Laquan McDonald on October 20, 2014. 17-year-old Laquan was shot 16 times, with almost all of the shots fired after he already hit the ground. The video contradicts the original police claims that Laquan lunged at officers with a knife. The lying pigs described the killing as a clear-cut case of self-defense.
