We’re in South-West Florida and tomorrow (Monday) and we’ll be broadcasting live from the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. Earlier today we had a chance to meet some of the people who’ll be in our audience.
Here’s Ros introducing the show…
This is Gerardo. He worked as a tomoto picker and was once enslaved. We’ll hear his personal story.
On a walk around the Coaltion’s offices, we got a sense of what the worker-town is like.
Here’s one of the many old school buses used to transport workers out to the fields every day. This one’s just come back from the fields.
There are plenty more pictures to put up, but the on-off internet connection here is not helping me put up the full set. Rest assured, I will put up more photos over the course of the programme tomorrow and during the week.
However, I could not go without posting a picture of the WHYS-mobile. It is HUGE. To get a sense of its size just look at ultra-petite Alicia standing in front of it. We’ve nick-named it ‘Infinity’. I think this is a terrible name. Got any alternative suggestions?
