Utopia #6 - Protest

We protested with the restaurant workers. Again I was having such a great time i forgot to take pictures.

Forks & Knives, Unite!!!!

Come join us as we noisily support the Resaurant Opportunities Center.
The ROC organizes restaurant workers, mostly immigrants, throughout the
city. They are now engaged in a campaign against the Fireman
Hospitality Group who owns most of the large, fancy restaurants
surrounding Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and which owes over $10
million in stolen tips and unpaid wages (along with sexual harassement
and racial discrimination claims) to 250 workers whom the ROC has
organized to file two federal lawsuits.

You can imagine what a boost it will give their protest to have HMB
brassily agitating on their behalf, and it wouldn't hurt if you join
them, too!

The protest will take place at Cafe Fiorello, at 64th and Broadway
(across from Lincoln Center) on Thursday the 27th from 7-8pm.

See you there!
