solidarity with farm workers and food workers

posted January 29, 2014

Check out this just-released video produced by the Family Farm Defenders, chronicling the recent Farm Labor Reality Tour, which saw the unique coming together of small farmers, food workers, and farmworkers in a 6,500-mile journey across the US. It is especially poignant as we remember the powerful and lasting legacy left by John Kinsman, who is featured in this film. For the final leg of the epic trip, Family Farm Defenders, Food For Maine’s Future, and members of the US Food Sovereignty Alliance joined the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ 200-mile March for Rights, Respect, and Fair Food.
