Boycott Publix Miami 2012

 There's a new Publix in Downtown Miami, at 17th and Biscayne. The day it opened, the Coalition Of Immokalee Workers staged a protest there.

I'm still boycotting Publix, and haven't spent a penny with them since December, 2011 as a protest for their refusal to sign an accord with the CIW to see Florida's largest corporation stand up for humane working conditions in the fields where its produce is picked.

I worked as a bagger at Publix when I was a kid and I know they are a pretty good company, but I refuse to spend any more money with them at all until they acknowledge their corporate responsibility to stand up for agricultural workers on American soil.
