Full Text:
International Grape Boycott Day, May 10, 1969 Don't Eat Grapes. Milton Glaser "We are men and women who have suffered and endured much and not only because of our abject poverty but because we have been kept poor. The colors of our skins, the languages of our cultural and native origins, the lack of formal education, the exclusion from the democratic process, the numbers of our slain in recent wars - all these burdens generation after generation have sought to demoralize us, to break our human spirit. But God knows that we are not beasts of burden, we are not agricultural implements or rented slaves, we are men. We are men locked in a death struggle against man's inhumanity to man." -Cesar Chavez, Letter From Delano, United Farm Workers, AFL-CIO, Delano, California
