"All my life, I have been driven by one dream, one goal, one vision: To overthrow a farm labor system in this nation which treats farm workers as if they were not important human beings."
- César Estrada Chávez

New York, Delaware oppose Maine plan to loosen smog rules
Portland Press Herald - 10/22/2013.
