"…We also have two events coming up. The first is almost a week away. Two speakers from the Colombian food and beverage union will speak about the repression of workers and communities at the hands of paramilitary troops contracted by the Coca-Cola corporation. We think it’s important for students, faculty, and communities members to be aware of these atrocities in light of FSU’s contractual connections with Coke. The event is on Wednesday, Oct 8th at 8pm in SSB 219."

"Later on in October, we’re excited to bring back the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (www.ciw-online.org) to talk about their new campaign against Chipotle and Subway. Now that McDonalds’s, Taco Bell, and Burger King have all agreed to pay their famworkers 1 cent more per pound of tomatoes picked, as well as sign an agreement condemning modern day slavery, the CIW is working on getting Chipotle and Subway to agree as well. The event is on Monday, Oct 20th at 8pm in BEL 102. The CIW is also interested in doing some classroom presentations. If you have classes on Monday or early Tuesday with professors who would be willing to let the CIW do a short presentation at the beginning of class, please ask them and respond with your class day, time and room number."
