To all those who have accompanied us and have traced a road full of hope for the proletariat class of workers. This 17th of March will be the FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF THE STRIKE, we will remember and recommit to what we have sown on March 17, 2015 where more than 70,000 farmworkers rose up on that morning in the valley of San Quintin in order to demand better working conditions and fair wages and it is for this reason that we invite you to join us on our MEGA-CARAVAN to commemorate this historic day, we will leave San Quintin on the 17th of March until we arrive on the beaches of Tijuana on the 20th of March there we will meet on the US/Mexico border with our brother migrants that are located on the other side, we will continue to struggle for the original demands we made, as of today none of them have been met, we continue to raise our voices.
This MEGA-CARAVAN is also meant to also demonstrate that even after one year from that historic event on March 17, where we, thousands of farmworkers refused to work in the fields and came to the streets demanding better working conditions, the businessmen growers have not given the opportunity for our demands to be heard.
