Sunday. 1/20, 2pm-4pm
On MLK Weekend, Walk the Picket Line in Support of Golden Farm Workers

Where: Golden Farm, 329 Church Ave, Brooklyn NY 11218

“Whenever you are engaged in work that serves humanity and is for the building of humanity it has dignity and it has worth… it is a crime for people to live in this rich nation and receive starvation wages.”
—Martin Luther King, Jr.

This Sunday, honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and join workers from all over the city to walk the picket line in support of Golden Farm workers. There will be a pumped up picket line (enforcing the neighborhood boycott of the grocery store), music from the amazing Afro-Colombian cumbia band ¡Ay Mayo!, and a worker speakout.

KENSINGTON RESIDENTS: Occupy Kensington and 99 Pickets will be collecting pledges from customers who are boycotting Golden Farm, stating how much they used to spend at the store and a pledge to return once Sonny Kim signs a fair contract with workers. The pledges will be delivered to Sonny Kim later in the week to let him know exactly what he is losing by not treating his workers fairly.

WHEN: Sunday, Jan. 20 2-4pm
WHERE: 329 Church Ave., Brooklyn. F/G trains to Church Ave. or B35 bus to E 5th St.
WHY: To demand Sonny Kim negotiate A FAIR CONTRACT and RETURN OF HOURS to workers who are organizing.

After over a decade of getting paid well below minimum wage – totaling over $500,000 in stolen wages – workers at the Golden Farm grocery store stood up for their rights, suing owner Sonny Kim for their back wages and voting to form a union.

Today, the workers at Golden Farm are in their FIFTH MONTH of contract negotiations… FOUR MONTHS after their successful union election, and ONE YEAR after filing a lawsuit for back wages that is still only TENTATIVELY settled. They have stuck with the struggle and we are sticking with them!

Join 99 Pickets, Occupy Kensington, New York Communities for Change and the Occupy Wall Street community as we demand that Sonny Kim sign a FAIR CONTRACT with Golden Farm workers and RESTORE THE HOURS he cut to retaliate against workers who are organizing.
