Austin Demands Fair Food

http://austin.indymedia.org/newswire/display/36586/index.php

The Student/Farmworker Alliance – ATX converged on an area Burger King in a spirited Halloween protest. Chanting, “Down with the King, Off with his Head!” the organizers approached the restaurant. Featured in this video clip, BK employees did not seem happy to see the delegation. The manager-on-duty was clearly defensive, but just doing his job. BK VP Steve Grover, too, is defensive and continues to publicly reject the CIW’s demands to work together to address the human rights crisis in the fields of Florida.

Local organizers vow to “keep the pressure here in Austin, TX.”

CIW allies are converging on Miami this November 30th in support of the Coalition’s demands.
