    I've always loved Cesar Chavez and totally believe in the power of boycotts.

    I stopped eating grapes during the boycott back then and I totally forgot to ever eat them again, in all these years since.

    I just started eating grapes again about two years ago.

      same. Took me years to start eating grapes again.

      My (then) husband was a Teamster at the time, and we had a bumper sticker:

      THIS TEAMSTER SUPPORTS FARMWORKERS
      and that was because the Teamsters were signing sweetheart contracts with the growers. We were active with Friends of Farmworkers.

      That was a damn fine fight, as Mother Jones would say.
