Leaflet urging a boycott in support of striking farm workers. The hard-won 1970 contract from the historic UFW strikes expired in 1973 and Gallo then attempted make a deal with the Teamsters union that reneged on many of those protections. When Cesar Chavez again led his members in a strike against Gallo, large numbers of picketing farm workers were arrested and beaten. Two were murdered. This prompted Chavez to call off the strike and call for a nationwide boycott of Gallo.
