More on the Stemilt Cherry Pickers

Background here.

I just received this via e-mail:
Help Stemilt Cherry workers get food, housing and justice.

Late Friday we told you about the situation in Shafter CA, where more than one hundred cherry pickers were evicted after talking to news media about their working and living conditions. Today we want to ask you for financial help so we can continue to aid these farm workers and fight the company responsible for this travesty, Stemilt Growers Company--which boasts of being the largest shipper of fresh-market sweet cherries in the world.
If you can and have the desire, please donate.
