That this National Executive Council supports the United Farm Workers boycott of grapes and iceberg head lettuce from California and Arizona until such time as free, secret ballot elections for field workers are held, and calls upon Anglicans to refrain from the purchase or consumption of non-United Farm Worker table grapes and head lettuce from California and Arizona in any of its functions or institutions until such time as free, secret ballot elections have been held.
Since the termination of Project North in 1987, further evaluation and consultation between the churches in Canada has led to a new coalition on aboriginal justice concerns. This is the result of discussion between the churches, network groups, and native organizations. It shifts the focus of the former Project North to include justice issues for native people all over Canada and is based upon the church leaders' recent statement: "A New Covenant".
That this National Executive Council support and participate fully in the new coalition: Project North - Ecumenical Coalition for Aboriginal Justice; and request the Program Committee to appoint two representatives from the Anglican Church of Canada to its Steering Committee. CARRIED #54-11-88
