On Wednesday, April 2nd nearly 100 people from in and around Denver
came out to show their solidarity with the Coalition of Immokalee
Workers (and brought with them over 1,000 postcards to Chipotle signed
by individuals who couldn't make it but nonetheless wanted to tell
Chipotle that they support farmworker rights) in a powerful rally and
march on Chipotle headquarters.
