Support Ava Guarani, Publicly Reveal Seaboard Corp
13 Mar 2004
Modified: 12:18:03 AM
avamujeres.jpgCALL TO ACTION!
PUBLICLY REVEAL SEABOARD CORP AT THEIR BOSTON-AREA OFFICES THIS THURSDAY!

Support the Ava Guarani from Tabacal, N. Argentina, an indigenous group who has been struggling for their autonomy and their land, which was stolen by the Tabacal sugar refinery, owned by the US-based SEABOARD CORPORATION.

THE COMMUNITY HAS CALLED FOR OUR SUPPORT
ESPECIALLY WORCESTER/BOSTON AREA ACTIVISTS!

The control office, or "brains" of Seaboard is here in Chestnut Hill, Mass!
Groups from all over Argentina are working on this campaign and need our support. The most recent of their actions in Buenos Aires, yesterday (Thurs. March 11) brought thousands to the streets for an "escrache" or "public revealing." One week later, we demonstrate in solidarity:

THURSDAY, MARCH 18
4-6PM
822 Boylston Street
Chestnut Hill, MA 02467
(directions to come)

It's time to PUBLICLY REVEAL SEABOARD CORPORATION for:
1) Displacing the Ava Guarani from Tabacal, Salta, Northern Argentina and allowing brutal repression of those re-occupying their native land;

2) Committing animal cruelty on a massive scale in their factory pork farms in the US; and

3) Made millions off of government subsidies / corporate welfare (public tax $) and tax cuts.

More info on the situation of the Ava Guarani:
