Public Statement Date: 9/12/2001 From: coaimmwkr@aol.com

The following is a joint statement by the Coalition of Immokalee Workers and the Student/Farmworker Alliance on the postponement of the Truth Tour.

[Tomorrow we plan to issue a statement to the press with the CIW, SFA, and the many, many organizations across the country who put so much effort into organizing the tour.]

Thanks for your support, and we sincerely hope that all -- friends and family-- are safe and well during these difficult days.

Out of respect for the thousands of innocent people who lost their lives so horribly in the tragic events of September 11, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, the Student/Farmworker Alliance, and our friends and colleagues across the country have decided to postpone the Taco Bell Truth Tour, originally planned for September 13-30. We will announce the new tour dates at an appropriate time.

We join the families and friends of the victims in mourning the senseless loss of so many beautiful, beloved lives. Our thoughts and prayers are with them in these most difficult times.
