SOLIDARITY STILL NEEDED: CONTINUE TO INCREASE THE PRESSURE ON SAKUMA AND DRISCOLL’S.
Thank you to all the Boycott Committees and supporters who went out to Costco and Whole Foods Markets during the International Week of Action to pressure these stores to respect the boycott of Driscoll’s berries that the farmworkers are calling for in both Washington State and San Quintin Mexico. Listen to the message from members of Familias Unidas por la Justicia.
On August 25th, at the beginning of International Week of Action, a delegation which included Ramon Torres, President of FUJ, and Felimon Pineda, Vice President of Familias Unidas por la Justicia met with Costco management at their headquarters in Issaquah, WA. Costco said they would not remove Driscoll’s berries from their shelves. Since they will not take action to support the farmworkers in their fight for an end systemic wage theft, poverty wages, and hostile working conditions it is time to INCREASE THE PRESSURE.
Check out the video below taken at the Whole Foods Market in Oakland, California during the week of action.
BOYCOTT THESE PRODUCTS UNTIL THE FARMWORKERS OF FAMILIAS UNIDAS HAVE A UNION CONTRACT. Calling for a boycott of these products that the workers help produce—and earn a living from—is not something that is done lightly. Let your dollars do the talking: Spend them elsewhere when you buy berry products.
