Solidarity with CIW & Supporters’ Week Long Fast

On Monday March 5th, members of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and 150 of their supporters gathered at the headquarters of supermarket chain Publix, in Lakeland, FL to begin a “Fast for Fair Food.”

The CIW and supporters are fasting due to Publix’s refusal to end their part in farmworker exploitation and take part in the Fair Food Program, which increases wages as well as increases other standards of living.

Miami Autonomy and Solidarity stands with the CIW and its supporters in their week long fast and their fight for social and economic justice for farmworkers.
