Rock Stars Help Striking Grocery Workers

Former RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE star TOM MORELLO and SYSTEM OF A DOWN's SERJ TANKIAN are offering striking grocery workers in California a little Christmas cheer after hastily organising a benefit concert.

Grocery workers in Los Angeles have been locked out of big stores ever since they went on strike in October (03) in a fight over a reduction of their benefits.

And, with many of them facing a grim Christmas, the two rock activists organised a benefit show to raise cash for them.

The duo were joined by SLIPKNOT's COREY TAYLOR and cult Los Angeles group PHANTOM PLANET among others at a concert last night (18DEC03).

Morello says, "The proceeds will go to the grocery store workers to help them buy presents for their kids."
