Meanwhile, in Mexico, the death toll from last week’s devastating magnitude 7.1 earthquake has risen to 305 people, as southern Mexico was shaken by two more earthquakes on Saturday. Among those who died in last week’s earthquake are garment workers who were buried after their factory collapsed. This is garment worker organizer Gloria Juan Diego Monzón.
Gloria Juan Diego Monzón “The conditions are the same as 1985. That is why we are here. It is painful to see that here, in this space, just as what happened in San Antonio Abad, there were so many bodies taken away. There were so many bodies trapped in the rubble. And today, just as they did 32 years ago, they hide how many bodies they really found and how many have died. That is why we came out here: to keep on struggling from each of our own spaces.”
