We need, in short, to carry on what Cesar Chavez began.

The Industrial Workers of the World who stormed across western fields early in the 20th century, the Communists who followed, the socialists, the AFL and CIO organizers all their efforts had collapsed under the relentless pressure of growers and their powerful political allies. Chavez grasped the essential fact that farm workers had to organize themselves."Si se puede," he said repeatedly to me, a highly skeptical reporter, as we talked deep into the early morning hours there in the cluttered shack that served as headquarters for him and the others who were trying to create an effective farm workers union. Outside organizers, however well intentioned, could not do it.In addition to T-AKE construction, the San Diego shipyard is also building the first of three Mobile Landing Platform ships for the U. I first met Cesar Chavez when I was covering labor for the San Francisco Chronicle.It was on a hot summer night in 1965 in the little San Joaquin Valley town of Delano, California. Too many others, over too many years, had tried and failed to win for farm workers the union rights they absolutely had to have if they were to escape the severe economic and social deprivation inflicted on them by their grower employers. I had not accounted for the tactical brilliance, creativity, courage and just plain stubbornness of Cesar Chavez, a sad-eyed, disarmingly soft-spoken man who talked of militancy in calm, measured tones, a gentle and incredibly patient man who hid great strategic talent behind shy smiles and an attitude of utter candor.
