Working people's rights are under attack around the globe.
Sweatshops are expanding and governments are cutting back on social
spending while corporate welfare goes untouched. But, people are
fighting back. In El Salvador, sweatshop workers, the women's
movement and the FMLN (Farabundo Marti National Liberation
Front) have joined together to organize for change. Public sector
workers have mobilized thousands of people into a growing
movement against the selling off of public institutions. Ana Maria and
Wilmer are seeking international support for their struggle during a 4-
week speaking tour across the U.S. Come hear their story of how the
U.S. government and corporations are building sweatshops, exploiting
workers and busting unions in El Salvador. Come hear of the growing
resistance!
