Throughout history, the act of fasting has been a show of faith, a form of political protest, a weapon of the powerless.
From all the major faiths to social movements throughout modern times, Cesar Chavez, women's suffrage movement of the early 1900's to Mahatma Gandhi, they have all turned to fasting when other forms of protest have failed to produce change.
This coming month, workers from Immokalee -- men and women who put food on tables across the country -- will go without food again, this time to demand that Publix support that groundbreaking new partnership, that Publix support the fundamental human rights for farmworkers that are taking root today in Florida's fields thanks to the CIW's Fair Food Program.
Olmeca along with other allies will join the workers!
