Demonstrations at Two Santa Cruz Taco Bells in Solidarity with CIW

ammerica_2-27-04.jpgOn February 27, at least 300 people took part in demonstrations focusing on the sweatshop conditions in the Florida fields where Taco Bell's tomatoes are picked. People rallied at the Mission St. Taco Bell before marching through parts of downtown Santa Cruz and on to the Laurel St. Taco Bell. A large number of UCSC students took part in the demonstration, as well as various labor organizations such as the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) and United Farm Workers (UFW).

There were puppets, megaphones, poi dancing, and even a critical mass bike ride which included a critical drive-thru.

An important message of the day was, "Farmworkers Feed America! Stop the Exploitation!"

They have come about as a direct result of the illegal occupation, but are in some ways symbolic of the different kind of existence that Old Hebron has become as it is called, Area H-2."

Natural Bridges Elementary School Rented Out to Pacific Collegiate Charter School

On February 25, the Santa Cruz City School Board approved plans to rent out Natural Bridges elementary school to Pacific Collegiate Charter School. This decision came only a month after the board voted to close both Natural Bridges and Branciforte elementary schools.

Parents, students, and other concerned people packed a room on Wednesday night (Feb. 25) to speak out against the plan to rent out Natural Bridges. Speakers were only given 3 minutes each before being cut off at the mic in mid sentence. Pacific Collegiate Charter School has been criticized as being an elitist school that caters to the white and affluent.
