Kudos to Martin Sheen

Kudos to actor Martin Sheen for supporting the United Farm Workers union.

In a May 11, 2005 e-mail from the UFW, Sheen had this to say: "As an actor, I have been fortunate to be offered many interesting roles to play in movies and on TV. But I have another, more important job, a real-life role that I take very seriously -- that of citizen.

"In 2005, in the country I love, it is shameful that hard-working people like Ana are treated with so little respect by those who profit so richly from their labors."

We need more people like Sheen to fight for farm workers' rights.
