Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. This coming Saturday, March 5th, farmworkers from Immokalee, who harvest the state's $620 million tomato crop – will be joined by consumers from across the Southeast in three simultaneous marches through downtown Tampa converging at the 1313 S. Dale Mabry Highway store, where they will hold a rally to demand that the supermarket chain join a growing partnership among farmworkers, Florida tomato growers, and retail food giants aimed at ending decades of farm labor abuse in Florida.

Our guest is a spokesperson for the Coalition of Immokalee Workers. He is Marc Rodrigues.
