Pickers have had enough of this scam.

First we would like to say this video was made out of pure frustration of the unfair prices paid to mushroom pickers here in North America. It was not intended to be disrespectful in anyway toward Japan, our quality mushrooms or to personally attack any broker or buyer.
Here in Terrace, BC. Canada. The economic loss of this renewable forest product - the "Pine" or Matsutake mushroom has been devastating to our local business and economy.
The pickers have been unsuccessful for 5 years to organize any meaningful protest (strike)against the buyers. The buyers have been unable to give the pickers a fair price. The buyer's commission now has been cut in half for no reason. So we are asking any buyers in Terrace who would like to participate for a change to step up to the plate, for your customers, community, local businesses and fellow man to strike for 7 day's and picket those who don't next year. A letter will be sent to all before the 2008 mushroom season.
***UPDATE -Thank you for all those who have shown your support. Don't forget to watch part 2, 3 and 4.
