3-10-16 Sharing in the Pain of Struggle in 2:00 (Hail Cesar)

Rick Smith had a family emergency and was out all last week. I will be playing catch up over the next few days.



March 10, 2016
On this day in Labor History the year was 1968. That was the day that farm labor activist Cesar Chavez broke a twenty-five day fast. He fasted as a sign of commitment to nonviolence during the struggle for farm workers in Delano, California to gain fair wages and safe working conditions. During the fast he only drank water.

2:00 minute audio at link.
