Jesús Valderrama pickets Karl's Liquors for the sale of Gallo Wine at West Colfax in Denver, Colorado. He holds a sign that reads: "AFL-CIO United Farm Workers Union Picket. Please Don't Scab. Huelga." A young girl, the daughter of the owner of Karl's Liquors, stands beside him with a sign that reads: "Support Our Liquor Store." A second protester is in the distance.

General Note:
From inventory: "Jesús Valderrama is shown picketing at Karl's Liquors on West Colfax in Denver. The young girl is the daughter of the owner of Karl's Liquors. The store owner had allegedly referred to the United Farm Workers of America as "Nazi-Commie Agitators" sparking the picket lines around his establishment. Valderrama and his wife Sebastiana came to Denver with their three children in 1973. A strike was called that summer in California when California grape growers signed "sweetheart" contracts with the Teamsters Union. After the death of two strikers, Cesar Chavez called off the California strike and sent farm workers across the country to lead boycotts of lettuce, grapes, and Gallo wine. Karl's Liquors was one of many liquor stores in the Denver area to remove Gallo wine from their shelves. (Source Mike Wilzoch)."
