WALKING THROUGH THE INFERNO FOR FARMWORKER RIGHTS

THE 335 MILE UNITED FARMWORKER PILGRIMAGE FOR EQUAL WORKER RIGHTS TO ORGANIZE PART 1

August 3rd to August 26th, 2022

When Flashpoints senior producer, Miguel Gavilan Molina–a yaki-Chicano, former child farmworker heard that the UFW was planning a 335 mile pilgrimage for workers rights, there was no question that Flashpoints and KPFA would be there for every step of the pilgrimage. The Flashpoints team, along with La Onda Bajita and the apprenticeship program walked the 335 mile distance from Delano to Sacramento in 100 degree plus weather, and heard the multiple stories of the struggle of farmworkers and their families to make ends meet. We heard about the increased dagners of their work as a result of Global warming, the raging california fires and the pandemic. In our Flashpoints coverage of Farmworker pilgrimage, we contine KPFA and Pacifica’s long time support of the farmeworkers every step of the way. 4HOURS
