National Demonstration for Smithfield Workers
This August 29th, join hundreds of labor, faith, and social justice leaders in Williamsburg, Virginia at the largest-ever rally in support of Smithfield workers!
What: Demonstration at Smithfield Foods’ Annual Shareholders Meeting
When: August 29th, 2007, 11:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Where: Williamsburg, Virginia
Who: Workers from Smithfield’s Tar Heel plant, hundreds of their supporters, and YOU!
In the past year, justice for the workers at Smithfield Foods’ Tar Heel plant has become one of the preeminent social justice issues of our time. As workers continue to fight for the most basic workplace standards—clean drinking water, safe working conditions, freedom of association—your support has inspired and motivated their efforts, even as they faced verbal abuse, threats of termination, even immigration arrests.
This month, you can stand beside the brave plant workers, along with hundreds of their supporters, as they take their fight to the streets of Williamsburg, Virginia, staging a rally outside the 2007 Smithfield Foods’ shareholders meeting to demand a fair process to gain a union.
