No justice, No Pizza!

By Students for a Democratic Society

Fight Back News Service is circulating the following statement from Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) urging support for the striking Milwaukee workers at Palermo's Pizza.

Students for a Democratic Society is calling on campuses and students across the country to stand with the striking Palermos Pizza workers in Milwaukee, WI.

Organize your campus to boycott the pizzas (, sign the petition (, and donate to the strike fund (

Palermos workers demand what all workers deserve: respect, dignity, and the right to collectively bargain. In demanding a Palermos Workers Union, these workers have faced retaliatory action and incredible risk.

The Palermo’s Workers Union is demanding that Palermo Villa recognizes the Palermo’s Workers Union, re-instate the workers who were fired or replaced for participating in the strike, and negotiate a fair labor contract.

These workers, mostly Latino, courageously fight back amidst a time when workers, immigrants and students are all under attack from a ruling class in economic crisis.

A victory for the Palermos Workers Union is a victory for us all!

We applaud members of Milwaukee Students for a Democratic Society who picket and organize alongside the striking workers.

Workers and students: unite and fight!

Boycott Palermos!
