[ENGLISH BELOW]

¡Vamos! Usted jornalera y jornalero, salga este 22 de mayo a protestar contra el “Festival de la Fresa,” uno de los festivales más grandes y millonarios del condado de Ventura, donde la ciudad de Oxnard y los rancheros ganan miles y miles de dólares los cuales no sabemos en que se utilizan esas ganancias porque en vez de valorar su trabajo, lo explotan.

Queremos que la gente sepa:
-que usted jornalera/o trabaja más de 10 horas y no le pagan overtime (sobretiempo)
-que usted jornalera/o tiene que caminar una distancia bastante larga para poder ir al baño
-que usted jornalera/o tiene que ir a baños a pestilentes porque las compañías no los limpian seguido y no los mantienen limpios
-que usted jornalera/o no tiene una sombra para poder comer
-que muchas veces no les dan sus 10 minutos de break (descanso) cada dos horas y media
-que callan o ignoran las quejas de las y los trabajadores con amenazas o pérdida de trabajo
-que el acoso y el abuso sexual existe en el trabajo
-que usted jornalera/o padece de alergias en la piel, de problemas en sus sistemas respiratorios, y que probablemente padecerá cáncer por cosechar fresas que han sido regadas con pesticidas dañosos de la tierra fumigada con químicos altamente contaminantes.

Queremos que quienes vengan al festival de la fresa se den cuenta que todavía existe la explotación de las y los jornaleros, quienes cosechan estas deliciosas fresas para el festival.

¡ORGANÍZATE Y DEFIENDE TUS DERECHOS!
¡BOICOT DRISCOLL’S! ¡BOICOT SAKUMA!
¡VIVA LA LUCHA DE SAN QUINTÍN!
¡VIVA LA LUCHA DE FAMILIAS UNIDAS POR LA JUSTICIA EN WASHINGTON!
¡VIVA LA LUCHA DE OXNARD!

Join us! Protest the “Strawberry Festival” on May 22nd, one of the biggest and greatest money-generating festivals in Ventura County, where the city of Oxnard and the growers get thousands and thousands of dollars which aren’t going back to the community because the farmworkers remain in poverty and exploited.

We want people to know that here in Oxnard:
-Farmworkers who work 10+ hour shifts are not paid overtime
-Farmworkers have to walk long distances just to use the restrooms
-Farmworkers must use reeking, disgusting restrooms because companies do not maintain clean portable restrooms on a daily basis
-Farmworkers aren’t provided with shade from the sun for rest or to eat their meals
-Farmworkers are often not given 10 minute breaks every 2 and a half hours
-When making complaints about work conditions, farmworkers are often silenced, ignored, threatened, or fired
-Harassment and sexual abuse exists in the workplace
-Farmworkers are suffering skin allergies, respiratory problems, and will probably suffer from cancer for harvesting strawberries that have been sprayed with harmful pesticides from soil that has been fumigated with highly contaminant chemicals.

ORGANIZE AND DEFEND HUMAN RIGHTS!
BOYCOTT DRISCOLL’S! BOYCOTT SAKUMA!
