FLOC remembers Santiago Rafael Cruz, April 15

TOLEDO: The Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC) will host a memorial commemorating the life of Santiago Rafael Cruz, a FLOC employee who was assassinated in our offices in Monterrey, México on April 9, 2007. Santiago was assassinated for working to stop corruption against agricultural workers seeking employment in the United States on the H2A Guest Worker Visa.

During the memorial, members of FLOC, who knew Santiago, will share their testimonies. Baldemar Velásquez, president of FLOC, will provide updates on the status of Santiago’s assassination investigation along with Lionel Rivera, a renown human rights lawyer, and also FLOC’s attorney in México, who continues to work on Santiago’s case.
