Notes

Summary:
United Farm Workers of America (UFW) supporters picket the Denver City and County building in Denver, Colorado. The picketers protest Judge Robert Cummins' decision to jail UFW coordinator Jerry Ryan for refusing to remove his "Boycott Gallo" button at the beginning of his trial for a prior arrest for picketing. One picket carries a sign with a skull and crossbones that reads: "Cummins drinks Gallo Wine."

General Note:
From inventory: "United Farm Workers of America (UFW) supporters picket the Denver Court House on Colfax after Judge Robert Cummins jailed UFW coordinator Jerry Ryan for refusing to remove his "Boycott Gallo" button at the beginning of his trial for a prior arrest for picketing. The incident received media coverage and the judge was overruled by an appellate court on First Amendment grounds. Denver Boycott supporters were cited and/or arrested 102 times during the Gallo boycott between 1974-1976. Defended pro-bono by National Lawyers Guild, supporters were never convicted of a single charge brought by police when arrests were made in attempts to break the boycott. (Source Mike Wilzoch)."
