FLOC Monterrey Accompaniment

(in above photo: CPTer Joe Mueller at work in the FLOC Office)

In May 2007 I joined a CPT team in Monterrey, Mexico for an emergency accompaniment project with workers at the Farm Labor Organizing Committee office. In April 2007, one of their staffers was assassinated in the office, likely due to their wo
rk on behalf of migrant laborer rights. CPT spent two weeks accompanying the office workers, who were determined to carry on the work in spite of the attempt to intimidate and silence them. For more information on FLOC, please see: http://www.floc.com/
