Hear from a delegation from the Marin County Task Force that traveled from the San Francisco Bay Area to participate at the US-Mexican Border to raise issues of immigration justice and:
(1) participate in a national convergence at the border to highlight the militarization of the southern border and the U.S.-sponsored militarization of Central American borders, and the human rights crisis of an unjust immigration system
(2) support maquiladora workers, highlight the failures of the North America Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in protecting workers rights and demonstrate the dangers of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) in further depressing wages in Mexico and the United States
This is part of the Alliance for Social and Economic Justice. Participating organizations: Bay Area Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador (CISPES), Global Exchange, Marin Task Force on the Americas, San Francisco Living Wage Coalition, Trabajo Cultural Caminante, School of the Americas Watch West.
