    ...against some of the most powerful corporations in the food industry, an industry that has exploitation written all over it: exploitation of the earth, exploitation of animals and exploitation of people.

    The odds are against them of course, but the odds were against the industrial workers who built the CIO and the odds were against the public sector workers of the 1960's and 1970's who built unions like the AFT and AFSCME.

    These workers need our support. Last Saturday there was a noisy demonstration in Chicago against exploitation of downtown restaurant and retail workers.

    We have a movement. Let's keep it going.
