Mexico: Free Labor Rights Attorney Susana Prieto Terrazas!

Statement by the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT), 12 June 2020,




The Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT) states its full solidarity with the Labor Rights Attorney Susana Prieto Terrazas! Suzana is the attorney for the National Independent Syndicate of Industrial and Service Workers/Sindicato Nacional Independiente de Trabajadores de Industrias y Servicios 20/32 (SNITIS). The SNITIS union represents maquiladora workers in Mexico.


The maquiladora workers face super-exploitation by multinational corporations since many years. Their cheap labor is crucial for the gigantic profits of American and other monopoly capitalists.


Susana Prieto Terrazas has been arrested on bogus charges by the Governor Francisco Javier García Cabeza de Vaca, Governor of the State of Tamaulipas. In fact, her only “crime” is that she defended the rights of the maquiladora workers.


We demand the immediate and unconditional release of Susana Prieto Terrazas!


Long live international solidarity!
