Student/Farmworker Alliance Days of Action + National Mobilization on Miami!
27 Oct 2007
Modified: 28 Oct 2007
Today, in the wake of the Yum Brands and McDonald’s agreements, we stand on the threshold of a more modern, more humane agricultural industry in Florida. Yet, facing this historic opportunity, Burger King seems to have chosen business as usual over progress, continued exploitation over justice. It is time for Burger King to seize the moment and stand with Florida's tomato pickers in our fight for fundamental human rights in the fields. This march is the next step in moving Burger King out of the way of progress and behind the principles of the Campaign for Fair Food.

Student/Farmworker Alliance (http://sfalliance.org) members are taking to the streets across the country for the "Kingdoom" Days of Action from now through November 4. Allies of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (http://ciw-online.org) are demanding that fast-food giant Burger King take responsibility for the sweatshop conditions and human rights abuses in its tomato supply chain.
