La UFW "Piden" y se ponen a rogar de "Rodillas" al Gobernador/ UFW BEGS GOV. ON THIER KNEES WHILE
THEY KILL WORKERS IN THE FIELDS !

Rodillados a las puertas de la oficina del gobernador, docena s de campesinos de California rezaron un rosario por sus compaņeros muertos.

Brothers and Sisters.

Yesterday we held our Press conference at the State Capitol,to condemn the six (6) Farm worker Deaths and the Governor's failure to enforce the very laws that the UFW supported the Governor in signing to protect Agricultural wo rkers and his bankrupt administration and his anti-union Policies in where the Governor has Laid off 10,000 state employees and threatened the State Workers SEIU Union with paying their wages at $6.75 per hour as minimum wage because of the Budget.

What's interesting is the UFW did Not come to the State capitol yesterday to condemn the Governor's lack of enforcement in the death of the 6 Farm Workers Deaths but rather came to "Beg" the Governor on their knees to please support their "Representation Legislation",a weak performance for the Union in especially when the UFW and the anti-union Governor were the ones who supported a weak law to protect Farm Workers from the heat in the Fields and the Gov.on ly interest was in protecting the Agricultural employers and their Farm Labor contractors.

At our press conference we demanded that the UFW break with its long term cozy relationship with the anti-Union anti-worker Governor,and the "Right wing Mexican Government's Guestworker Program",instead of b egging for his support for a law that will Not Organize the workers in the fields nor will he sign ,the UFW needs to go back to why we founded the UFW and that's to Organize the workers in the fields and not the pilfering paid politicians,in especially the Democrats after all was it not Bill Clinton that gave us NAFTA and Operation Gatekeeper,so what's so different in the Republicans and the Democrats when they are the the ones who's economic policies that have created the forced migrat ion of millions of workers in at least the western hemisphere having been forced and expelled from their homeland and abandon their land to come to this country as "Huespedes" "Guest workers" as indentured servants".

The UFW is wrong in their falling prey to the Politicos" and legislators such as "Fabian Nunez",now a paid Lobbyist,the real work is in powering the "rank and File Workers" building a strong union a Union by Farm Workers and not by those that profess to be farm workers who have never been farm workers,the UFW belongs to the workers and Not allow to have been taken over as personal property by a family,but the workers.

Thier will be those supposed "Progessive Intelectual armchair Revolutionaries" that will defend and support the actions of the UFW as they will be defending the politics of the Democrats for the sake on the contination of the same old politics of doing nothing but massaging thier egos,who are they those that now live in obscurity having forums and talking to themselves,the few and do nothing and live in thier comfort zone as "Left Revolutionaries".


Ayer vinieron los de la UFW a Sacramento para "Cabildear" la ley apoyada por el "Lobbyists Fabian Nunez",sea una ley que les permitaria supuestamente "Representacion Sindical" y venirle y a "Pidir y rogarle" de "Rodillas" al Gobernador frente sus oficinas.

Y ayer estuvimos en conferencia de prensa con el objectivo de condenar y denunciar al Gobernador por las muertes de los ultimos 6 muertos en los campos de la labor en los ultimos cuatro (4) meses y ademas criticar y demandar que la UFW se "Rompan" de esa relacion "Equivocada" amistosa con un Gobernador Anti-Sindicalista y Anti-Inmigrante.

Nos llego a en trevistar Univision,pero no nos exc luyeron de las noticias sea el otro punto de vista de Denunciar al Gobernador y la UFW no vino a denuciar las muertes sino para "Rogarle de Rodillas y Piderle" al gobernador que
los apoyara con la legislacion para la ley de dictamin que le propone la UFW,sea a espaldas de los cuerpos de los
muertos estan haciendole al juego a los Politicos para su benificio,sea una campana en legislar y no Organizar en los campos agricolas,sea menos en venir a Prostestar.
