Fields of Resistance: The Struggle of Florida's Farmworkers for Justice


Product Information

"Migrant farmworkers in the United States are routinely forced to live and work in unsafe, impoverished conditions. In response, farmworkers in Immokalee, Florida, the 'tomato capital of the world', formed the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW). Against powerful adversaries, the CIW went on to launch nationwide campaigns that have forced the corporate giants of the fast food and groery industries to concede to their demands for increased wages and just working conditions. As their struggle, and that of immigrants and low-wage workers everywhere, continues, Silvia Giagnoni presents their remarkable story."
