IF WASHINGTON HOUSE BILL 1104 PASSES, VIDEOS OF FARMWORKERS ON STRIKE LIKE THIS ONE AT SAKUMA BROTHERS FARMS (http://youtu.be/iIDgHH_hIXE) WILL BE ILLEGAL AND THE FARMWORKERS SUCH AS FELIMON PINEDA WHO IS NARRATING CAN BE CHARGED WITH A MISDEMEANOR PUNISHABLE UP TO 5 YEARS AND $5000 FINE.

Dear Farmworker Supporters,

We need your help! A very bad bill for farmworkers will be heard on Tuesday, Jan 20th at 8:00 am in the House Committee on Public Safety.
We will send out additional info and talking points soon and materials you can use to testify against this bill.
FOR NOW USE THESE COMMENTS: This bill will silence farmworkers and advocates from documenting abuse and violations of law, both of the workers and animals. This has serious ramifications for the ability to protect workers and livestock. This is a right-wing agenda pushed by the national conservative group ALEC and has been introduced in other states as a way to gag worker's and those speaking up for workplace and animal rights. Rep. Schmick is a member of ALEC and it is clear to see he is NOT SUPPORTING THE RIGHTS OF FARM WORKERS!
