99PKTS at Golden Farm: Retaliate, We Escalate!
Where: Golden Farm, 329 Church Ave, Brooklyn NY 11218
Two defenders of immigrant workers’ rights at the Kensington Golden Farm grocery store stepped out of the rain, under the awning of Golden Farm. Owner Sonny Kim had them arrested for standing too close to the entrance and the two were quickly taken away in handcuffs.
Seeing the other folks – at least five others, including one woman with her child – still maintaining the line in the rain was inspiring.
From the Golden Farm Justice blog:
Pretty clearly, Sonny hoped that he would eliminate the picket for the afternoon, perhaps leaving signs and literature unguarded. However, just before the arrests took place, I arrived for my usual Sunday shift as a neighborhood boycott volunteer. NYCC staff were alerted, the organization’s criminal lawyer was quickly brought into play, and word went out to community supporters, who began showing up in front of the store to keep the picket going.
