Radio Pacifica Evening News 4/17/13 – California Strawberry Festival, Springs Fire Oxnard

[OXNARD, CA, 4.17.13] Local groups and advocates are crying foul over the California Strawberry Festival, an event that celebrates an industry built on harsh labor exploitation in the plantations of agricultural California. This year’s festival comes on the heels of the Camarillo Springs Fire, where 15 workers at Crisalida Farms were fired for leaving the strawberry fields due to unsafe working conditions resulting from the fire. Ernesto Arce of Radio Pacifica Evening News spoke to Elliott Gabriel of the Todo Poder al Pueblo Collective about this recent outrage.
