Rally in Solidarity with Los Mineros
Justice for the Media Luna Miners! Defend the Right to Organize! No Vote on NAFTA Until It’s Fixed!
Since NAFTA renegotiations started in 2017, three activists trying to organize a union at the Media Luna gold mine in Mexico have been murdered. Brothers Víctor and Marcelino Sahuanitla Peña were dragged from a union protest and shot. A year later union leader Quintin Salgado was killed.
Now their colleague, labor and environmental activist Oscar Hernández Romero, has been missing since September 23, 2019.
Mexican authorities have refused to investigate Oscar’s disappearance.
On Wednesday November 13th at 12pm, we’ll have a vigil at the Mexican consulate to press the Mexican government to find the missing activists and call on our Representatives to oppose the new NAFTA until we can be sure the Mexican government will have the backs of labor organizers.
