Dolores Huerta & Cesar Chavez in Sacramento

About This Item

A KQED news report on the National Farm Workers Association from Sacramento on April 10th 1966, featuring a speech by Dolores Huerta who promises the crowd that: "The developments of the past seven months are only a slight indication of what is to come. The workers are on the rise. There will be strikes all over the state and throughout the country because Delano has shown what can be done and the workers know that they are no longer alone." She goes on to threaten Governor Edmund Brown with a general strike unless he calls for an emergency session of the state legislature, to enact a collective bargaining law for California's farm workers. Also includes KQED's Mel Wax interviewing Cesar Chavez who discusses the significance of the Delano strike, whilst the crowd is heard singing protest songs in the background.
