NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION
MARCH 17, 2014
JUSTICE FOR FILIPINO TRAFFICKED TEACHERS
On the death anniversary of Flor Contemplacion (a Filipino domestic worker who was unjustly executed in Singapore), GABRIELA USA will be taking action across the United States and launching the JUSTICE for Filipino Trafficked Teachers campaign.
Since 2003, batches of teachers have been illegally recruited and trafficked to the U.S. by Philippines-based recruitment agency owner Isidro Rodriguez. Case complaints have been reported to Philippine Embassy officials in the past as well as to the Philippine Overseas Employment Agency (POEA). However, the response from the Philippine government has been inadequate and unsatisfactory.
We call upon Filipinos, friends, and allies across the nation to join the teachers in their struggle for justice!
