“Saturday marked an international day of action to boycott Driscoll’s—the largest berry distributor in the world. About an hour north of Seattle in Burlington, Washington, berry pickers have been organizing for three years at Sakuma Brothers Farms, one of the farms where Driscoll’s buys berries. Since 2013, some workers launched a series of walkouts, picket lines and lawsuits over alleged labor violations. In 2014, one of their lawsuits went all the way up to the Washington Supreme Court, where they won a unanimous decision that set a precedent ensuring paid rest breaks statewide. The following year, massive protests broke out at Driscoll’s farms down in San Quintín Valley in Mexico. Since then, Driscoll’s farmworkers have been organizing together on both sides of the border. Democracy Now!’s Laura Gottesdiener spoke to protesting farmworkers in Washington state and went inside the camps where many of them live. She also spoke to Sakuma Brothers Farms CEO Danny Weeden.” – via DemocracyNow.org

Cuando me preguntan que si hay cambios en #‎SanQuintín después de la huelga, una de mis respuestas es, el cambio más importante es que nuestros niños están creciendo con una mentalidad diferente, están creciendo con palabras como justicia, salario justo, huelga, conciencia, alto a la explotación y esa mentalidad también la están adquiriendo otros niños como el caso de los niños de Estados Unidos que apoyan la lucha Ellos son mi esperanza. Ellos son nuestra esperanza. Por ellos es nuestra lucha. – via Familias Unidas Por La Justica
