UFW FLAG....Cal Poly San Luis and Future Farmers complaint

As a good MECHA member, I placed a display in the student bookstore for Cinco de Mayo…included was the UFW flag….The Future Farmers of American complained that it was offensive to them because their family businesses lost profits because of the UFW…I had the only key to the display….I ignored the calls and told my college bookstore that the Future Farmers were offensive to ME and all the working men/women and children represented by the UFW!!!  I kept my display up the entire month of May!!!
