Canadian supporters of farm workers and the United Farm Workers (UFW) tried to prevent the largest chain store from selling produce from growers that engaged in unjust practices. Included are photographs depicting Canadian supporters on the picket line. Furthermore, Swedish UFW and farm workers, and supporters denounced the action of the US Embassy supporting produce that farm workers were boycotting. The denouncement of the US embassy propelled more European citizens to support the efforts of farm workers.
