[CIW] Acts: Burger King protest: “November to Remember”, Miami; etc..

[CIW News] Huge Burger King protest heralds a "November to Remember" in
Miami!
Don’t miss the pictures and report from the exciting protest this past
 Saturday
outside a Burger King restaurant in Dania Beach, Florida.
You can see the report at the CIW site, http://www.ciw-online.org
More than 100 people came out to demand that Burger King "get out the way"
 of
progress and join Yum Brands and McDonald’s in improving the wages and
 working
conditions of farmworkers who pick their tomatoes.
The protesters promised this: If Burger King continues to support Florida
 tomato
growers in resisting respect for farmworkers’fundamental human rights,
 they
would be there in November at the national protest planned for Burger
 King’s
annual shareholders meeting in Miami.
Check out news from the protest and all the latest news from the Campaign
 for
Fair Food at the CIW site, http://www.ciw-online.org
See you in November! Thanks, Coalition of Immokalee Workers
 
 
[CIW News] CIW community radio ally on Bill Moyers!
In case you missed it, last night (Friday the 24th), Hannah Sassaman of the
Prometheus Radio project was interviewed on PBS’ "Bill Moyers Journal"
program.  You can view the program or read a transcript at PBS’ website:
Hannah is a long-time leader of the low-power radio movement, which you
 can read
more about in this article from In These Times (8/23/07), "The Promise of
 Low
Power FM":
Hannah and the Prometheus Radio Project were also key to the CIW winning
 its own
low power radio license and getting our station, 107.9FM, Radio
 Conciencia, on
the air. The station has been central to our community organizing work
 here in
Immokalee and was invaluable during Hurricane Wilma two years ago.
Be sure to check out the interview, and to support the low power radio
 movement
in the months ahead as crucial legislation makes its way through Congress.
 You
can learn more about the movement at the Prometheus website,
