One socialist down, fifty to go...

CA State Assemblyperson Jackie Goldberg has got herself arrested during a protest of the supermarket strike:

LOS ANGELES - More than 40 people were arrested Thursday during supermarket rallies in support of grocery clerks idled by a four-month strike and lockout.

The granddaughter of late farmworker union leader Cesar Chavez, state Assemblywoman Jackie Goldberg, D-Los Angeles, and an 86-year-old member of the Gray Panthers activist group were among those arrested during civil disobedience rallies involving clerks and about two dozen labor unions and community groups, organizers said...

Previously, I saw Jackie in person at a "peace" protest, and I covered her not-so-secret machinations here.


This strike is so stupid. As if these workers are facing the same hard ships that laborers faced during the early part of the 20th century.

I'd like to throw some rotten vegetables at those spoiled brats.
