In support of farmworkers - 2002 - Memphis, MLK museum press conference

Gaurav Deep Arora-"It's important for students to be involved in this movement, especially because young people 18 to 24 are the prime consumers for Taco Bell. Taco Bell spends $220 million a year to make us eat their food, so we have a right to demand the food is not produced under conditions of slavery.
It's fitting that we're here in front of the Civil Rights Museum because of the role of students in the Civil Rights Movement. We have to carry that on. We have an important role to keep on fighting for fair work. The workers are teaching the students something our schools don't: to challenge power."
