"There is a bond between the struggle of the farm workers in California and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is a bond of love and leadership, a bond which cannot be broken by the bullet of his assasin. It was Dr. Martin Luther King who taught us to value ourselves as individuals. His example proved to us that all farm workers, Mexicans, Filipinos, Negroes, Anglos, could live together and work together to gain the place in society which we merit as men" (p.3). Additional articles on Green Giant, growers violating the law, boycott news, and workmen's compensation.
