Workers in Amsterdam Support Tomato Pickers in Florida.

[Fair Food activists in New York have hooked up with their counterparts in Amsterdam and cities across The Netherlands to mobilize for next Sunday's huge march on Stop & Shop in Boston. The connection? Stop & Shop's Amsterdam-based parent company Ahold.

On Feb. 27th, there will be actions in Boston and Amsterdam, and in the weeks leading up to the actions, organizers in both cities have been consulting each other on everything from language to strategic tips to make the actions as powerful as possible.

Over the past couple of weeks, we've provided real-time updates from mobilization efforts here in the US, but today our mobilizing update is going international, with pictures from different cities around The Netherlands to get a taste of Fair Food organizing, Dutch-style!]
