Video from Student/Farmworker Alliance at McDonalds near the University of Pittsburgh on October 27th.

QuickTime movie at 4.1 mebibytes

On Friday, October 27th, about 20 supporters of the Student/ Farmworker Alliance turned out to protest at McDonalds near the University of Pittsburgh in Oakland. The protest was part of the Days of Action involving the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the Alliance for Fair Food.

Protesters are asking McDonalds to pay for a penny more per pound of tomatoes and an enforceable code of conduct. They say they are trying to show people in Pittsburgh that sweatshops exist in the United States and that they play a role in the system as consumers.

The video was shot by David and edited by Anitra and David.

You know I did not know what I was going to do for dinner on Friday, but when I saw you hippies with your stupid protest, well I just had to go in and support McD, that was a good Big Mac, so thanks for the suggestion on dinner.
