Morning Quickie: Take Action

Farmworkers in Florida who pick tomatoes for fast food chains are asking to be paid an extra penny per pound. Even though this is Florida, USA we're talking about, these farmworkers still only make on average $10,000 a year and are not allowed to form unions. Other fast food restaurants, like McDonald's, have worked with the Coalition of Immokalee workers, but Burger King refuses to do so. Go give them a piece of your mind.

Tell Jack Murtha "No more funding for the war in Iraq."

Gordon Brown is skipping the opening ceremonies of the summer Olympics in China. Urge President Bush to do the same.

If you think Bush is going to attend the Olympics no matter what we tell him, sign this Amnesty International petition telling him to at least put pressure on China's government to improve human rights.

Tell the House subcommittee
to fund international family planning.
