Thousands of Farm Workers March on Sacramento for SB 1736

The United Farm Workers concluded a 165 mile, 11 day march from the Central Valley to Sacramento on 8/25 with a rally that brought out over 5,000 supporters.
They are demanding that Governor Gray Davis sign SB 1736, which would legislate binding arbitration between farm workers and growers in California. The governor, who has been receiving large cash donations from growers in recent weeks, may veto the bill.
