Día sin Mexicanos in Willow Street

Here are some photos of signs from stores closed today for día sin Mexicanos. The event intended to show lazy Americans how much they rely on “immigrants” to provide for their basic needs, even though everyone on this continent EXCEPT latinos is an immigrant, and an illegal one at that according to 370 broken treaties with native peoples.

Willow St was dead as a graveyard. I’m still looking for real stories and evidence of how other communities fared; it’s hard to think on the effectiveness of Calle Willow’s solidarity gesture when one considers that the clientele is largely latino there. If the business owners couldn’t convince the people who are the problem –the white people on the other Willow St beyond highway 87 –at least they had a day to come together and plot out what it all means in a system that relies on racism to keep the working classes down and thereby also the prices of unnecessary consumer goods.

Apparently “dozens” of restaurants closed in the North American heartland. Tatiana Sanchez of the hopelessly incompetent Mercury News tried to do the story justice in today’s paper. No word yet on if Driscolls or Giant or Well-Pict or Dole suffered, who are massively to blame for any inducement people may have to come to California illegally, and also as guilty of starting the current heroin epidemic in the strawberry fields. Hope someone got the point!

Farmworkers call for boycott against Driscolls

A consortium of workers voiced by the Fair World Project have called for a boycott of Driscoll’s berries. Read the full article here:

Finally, what I’ve been doing for ten years is catching on. Boycott Driscolls and Giant for life! You live in the midwest or New York and you just like your berries once in a while? Tough shit! I’m from the coast where they grow those berries, and it’s been totally inhuman and insane for at least 30 years. The farmworkers are treated like less than animals, and the year-round obsession has caused 3 miles of saltwater intrusion into the best soil in the world. Boycott for life!

As we know, the “fruta del diablo” or strawberry, is so dangerous and strenuous to pick that migrant farmworkers have long ended up at 20 years old with the backs of 40 year-olds. They take heroin in Pajaro and Prunedale to feel better, and that’s probably why heroin in Santa Cruz is so cheap for you idiot consumer college students.
