The slogan "Yo no quiero Taco Bell" was heard throughout the streets of the business sector of Irvine in an organized protest against Taco Bell Monday. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers, who are fighting for better working and living conditions for the farmworkers who pick Taco Bell's tomatoes, traveled in a bus from Immokalee, Fla., to Irvine, stopping and picking up other supporters. The Bay Area organization Art and Revolution, in collaboration with the coalition, used street theater to present the death of justice and the consumer-driven nature of corporations such as Taco Bell.
