La Causa " A Cause"
Cesar said about The fast is alsoan act of penance for those in positions of moral authority and for all men and women activists who know what is right and just and who know that they could and should do more.
The fast is finally a declaration of non-cooperation with supermarkets who promote and sell and profit from California table grapes. During the past few years I have been studying the plague of pesticides on our land and our food.This solution to this deadly crisis will not be found in the arrogance of the powerful, but in solidarity with the weak and helpless. I pray to God that this fast will be a preparation for a multitude of simple deeds for justice. Carried out by men and women whose hearts are focused on the suffering of the poor and who yearn, with us, for a better world. Together and all things are possible.
