Join Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera

on our January 18-20, 2013, trip to visit worker/activists in Ciudad Acuña, Mexico 

In our 14th year of a solidarity partnership with Mexican NGO the Comité Fronterizo de Obreras/os or Border Committee of Workers, this trip will land us in the middle of the workers’ lives and their struggles for human dignity and labor rights as the biggest democratic union in Mexico goes up against the biggest corporatist union in Ciudad Acuña where previously a system of bribes banned all unions, both good and bad. We look forward to your joining us as we witness the tactics the workers will use to meet this historic moment. Adding to the pressure, the Mexican Congress has “reformed” a precious peoples’ legacy of the Revolution—the Mexican Federal Labor Law.

To secure your spot, call Judith at 512 4948-377 or write chelarose at grandecom dot net.  Orientation meeting in Austin 6PM on January 17th; delegation departs 8:30AM Friday, January 18 and travels in a rented van.  Destinations are Fuerza Unida in San Antonio, TX, Piedras Negras and Ciudad Acuña, MX.  $250 fee covers transportation, translation/interpretation, all meals, homemade and restaurant, and motel lodging in Mexico.  Full and partial scholarships available for those qualified.  Passport is necessary.  First step is to fill out a registration form and send a deposit.  Call or write now!
