Thank you for writing this article, Mr. Davis. People need to know the depth of this struggle. When the LA Federation got wind of the situation in Boron, people were moved to action, because they saw this mineworker struggle as fundamental. A food delivery and solidarity caravan was quickly organized, and unions went up to deliver sustenance and support.
We put together a short "fanvid" to remember the event, and, hopefully, spread some knowledge about the situation for the mine workers. It's set to the music of Bruce Springsteen. Please share this.
