The rally, ably mc'd by the Rev. Noelle Damico (above, in action), included one more symbolic blow to the fast-food giant: The Reverend Cindy Weber, pastor of Jeff Street Baptist Church at Liberty in Louisville, turned over to the CIW a check for $572...
... but this wasn't just any check. This was a check written to the church by none other than Yum Brands. But Reverend Weber, whose congregation has been boycotting Taco Bell for some time now, felt it would do more for the workers' cause. "It's hypocritical for us, as a church, to take charity from Yum Brands when they're not doing the more important work of justice," said Pastor Weber.
The sound you just heard was the resounding thud of a fast-food giant hitting the canvas. Round Two and the Battle in Louisville goes to the workers. Stay tuned for LA!!
