The Student Farmworker Alliance is leading the protest in cooperation with the Coalition of Immokolee Workers. We are protesting to get one more penny per pound for tomatoe pickers in Florida, which would double thier wages, as well as to end slavery and sweatshop conditions in the feilds.
To participate in planning and signmaking contact the local SFA chapter at Phone:814-602-5943 or email

With strong support from students and youth, the CIW won its four-year Taco Bell Boycott in 2005. Now the CIW and its allies are organizing to extend these precedent-setting gains for farmworkers throughout the rest of the fast-food industry. Over the last year, however, fast-food giant McDonald's has consistently responded to the dire human rights crisis in the fields as a mere public relations crisis, threatening to roll back the advances the CIW has won through years of struggle.
The Student/Farmworker Alliance calls for two days of widespread, decentralized actions on October 27-28th to show the fast-food giant that Immokalee's workers are not alone in this fight.

I'm the head of a group called "People Against Vomit Being Sold as Food". We stand in total solidarity against McDonalds.

I'd rather eat out Burger King's dumpster. Why is McDonalds so big? It makes no sense at all.

Thanks for the suggestion for dinner tonight

I saw you hippies today on my way back from work, I had not idea what I was going to do for dinner, but when I saw you protesting your little unimportant stuff, I decided that I was going to go there for dinner, I walk by that ugly guy dressed up as the clown. Thanks for the suggestion for dinner tonight.
