                       Last year's historic Taco Bell Truth Tour brought unprecedented
                       national pressure on Taco Bell, as 70 workers and 30 students
                       led a caravan of protests from Atlanta to LA, on their way to
                       a march of 2,000 angry consumers on Taco Bell headquarters
                       in Irvine. The tour resulted in the first-ever talks between
                       farmworkers and fast-food executives, but Taco Bell has yet
                       to take any concrete steps towards taking responsibility for
                       the sweatshop-like conditions in Florida's tomato fields.
