As workers in Immokalee put the final touches on plans for the 2005 Truth Tour, unprecedented support for the Taco Bell boycott continues to roll in. Yet another wave of prominent artists have added their names to the growing roster demanding an end to sweatshops in the fields. This time, the list includes one of America’s favorite and most versatile actors: Jeff Bridges, of such films as Seabiscuit, The Fisher King, and The Big Lebowski. And if that wasn’t enough, Utah Phillips — renowned storyteller and folk musician — as well as acclaimed guitarist Muriel Anderson and popular indie rock band The Weakerthans have also formally joined the campaign!

Louisville, KY, the hometown of Yum Brands and site of the upcoming March 12th National Convergence for Farmworkers Justice, has also witnessed a recent explosion of support.  In the last few weeks, the local labor community has joined its voice with faith, student, and community organizations throughout the city.  The CIW applauds UFCW Local 227 Executive Board and the Jefferson County Teachers Association for endorsing the boycott and committing to join us outside Yum’s headquarters on March 12th for a truly historic day!
