Although these next reports had no coverage in San Diego which I could find - or for that matter in Baja California, with the exception of La Jornada who have been covering the ongoing plight of the Jornaleros de San Quintin, Democracy Now covered the almost two weeks ago call for an international boycott of Sakuma and Driscolls. Here is that report and interviews in English with video:
"Driscoll's Workers Call for Global Boycott over Alleged Abuses of the World's Biggest Berry Distributor"
We are not members of Costco, so I am unaware if the Driscolls berries have been pulled from the shelves there - but just last week they were still on the shelves at Sprouts and Walmart and people were actually buying them - obviously unaware of the "alleged" abuses. I'm noticing different labels on some of the berries, unsure if Driscolls changed the labeling in order to garner sales, I'll ask around.
Here is Democracy Now's report on the musical group, La Santa Cecilia with video and interview:
"WATCH: Grammy-winning Band La Santa Cecilia Performs & Discusses the Message Behind Their Music"
The Muffin had an "attack" and is slowly recovering so I have had my hands full. Executions continue, I'll be back at some point with those updates. BTW, in the next few weeks we'll be going down to San Quintin to take care packages to the Jornaleros, if you want to come along or have anything you would like to donate just leave a message.
