Los Mexicanos: The Struggle For Justice Of Patricia Perez

Year: 2007
Director: Charles Latour
Producer: Charles Latour
Country: Canada
Time: 60 Minutes

Every year, some 4000 migrant foreign workers coming mostly from Mexico labour in Quebec farms to plant and pick vegetables in Canada. In the summer of 2006 Patricia Perez, a pro-union militant speaking for the UFCW, launches a major drive to organize the workers in several farms South of Montreal. She struggles to protect them by bringing them under a union that would give them the same rights as Canadian agricultural workers. This film is about the injustices of globalisation, not in the Third World, but in Canada.
