Caption

From 1911 to 1913, eight thousand Spanish families immigrated from Spain to the Hawaiian Islands. Promises of land and education were broken, nearly all continued to California, many would find their way to the fields and orchards of the San Joaquin Valley. In 1932 they went on strike. With the help of the IWW they took on the establishment, riots, beatings, lynching and the courts finally stopped them in California's first labor dispute in the fields. This would be the beginnings of the United Farm Workers Union.
