Immigration and the Culture of Solidarity – CIP Americas

The Americas Program is pleased to present the final article of the series 'Building a Culture of Cross-Border Solidarity'by David Bacon, in partnership with the Institute for Transnational Social Change at UCLA.

Immigration and the Culture of Solidarity – CIP Americas: "ONE indispensable part of education and solidarity is greater contact between Mexican union organizers and their U.S. counterparts. The base for that contact already exists in the massive movement of people between the two countries.
Miners fired in Cananea, or electrical workers fired in Mexico City, become workers in Phoenix, Los Angeles and New York. Twelve million Mexican workers in the U.S. are a natural base of support for Mexican unions. "
