Finally he sketched one on a piece of brown wrapping paper. The fast is finally a declaration of non-cooperation with supermarkets who promote and sell and profit fromCalifornia table grapes. He was able to garner the sponsorship of several organizations besides the church.

    Later, he would say, The love for justice that is in us is not only the best part of our being but it is also the most true to our nature. He began fasting to draw public attention. He declared the DiGiorgio election invalid and called for an August rerun to be supervised by the American Arbitration Association. The act, which was supported by California Gov. To raise funds, he opened a rummage store, organized a three-day carnival and sold Christmas treesalthough often made a loss.

    He then squared off the wing edges so that the eagle would be easier for union members to draw on the handmade red flags that would give courage to the farm workers with their own powerful symbol. Even in elections overseen by the National Labor Relations Board, American workers with far more security are afraid to stand up and be counted. Fast, to the point of death. Cesar fasted many times. And he was victorious. While sufficient background information is provided to support the story and encourage further research, focusing on one event makes the story appealing to younger readers.
