Coalition of Immokalee Workers prepares for Tampa Protest

A painted sign dries at the Coalition of Immokalee Workers that in Immokalee on Wednesday, March 2, 2011. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers are planning to have up to 200 workers head to downtown Tampa for a protest march Saturday demanding that Publix join a growing partnership among farmworkers. For more than two years, CIW has been demanding that Publix improve working conditions for tomato pickers by adopting a code of conduct that would include a zero tolerance on slavery and for the grocery chain to engage in a conversation directly with the coalition.
