The appeal is of a decision of the Florida District Court of Appeals which upheld a lower court ruling that although peace ful picketing by labor unions is upheld by the Constitution, this same proteetion docs not extend to racial groups. In December, 196 0, Webb s City, a variety store chain was picketed. Pickets carried signs reading “Don’t Buy Where You Aren’t Welcome.” The demonstrators marched in orderly fashion at all times and did not attempt to block en trance to the store. The picket ing was in protest of the store’s refusal to serve Negroes in the cafeteria. Webb’s City obtained an in junction prohibiting the demon stration on the grounds that the picketing was harming their busi ness and was illegal. The Florida courts upheld the injunction.
