Tell Burger King to Stop Stalling and Start Working with the CIW!
Please take a moment today to email decision-makers at Burger King and Goldman,
Sachs & Co. (an investment firm that owns a sizable chunk of BK stocks) today to
demand BK stop encouraging Florida growers' resistance and instead use their
influence, as Yum and McDonald's have, to stand with Florida's tomato pickers in
their fight for fundamental human rights in the fields.

today, and don't forget to forward it along once you're done!
Meanwhile, Anti-Slavery International (ASI), the world's oldest international
human rights organization, announced yesterday that it has chosen the CIW to
receive its 2007 Anti-Slavery Award "for their exceptional contribution towards
tackling modern-day slavery in the United States agricultural industry."
