November 7, 2009

Met with a grassroots group in Colonia Andres Figueroa. A couple issues came out of the conversation. One was the fact that children in the area lack values. Another was the fear of violence requiring people to stay at home more often. Two participants worked in maquiladoras (assembly factories) and they brought up the issue of injustice of those groups failing to hire anyone over 35 years old and other harsh working conditions. The speakers were mature individuals who had first hand knowledge of the history of their neighborhood.
