Join BAYAN USA & NAFCON to Demand JUSTICE for the Grand Isle Shipyard Filipino Workers!

When: Monday Feb. 25th
Where: Philippine Consulate – 447 Sutter Street, SF – Map it!
Time: 4pm-5pm

What: Over 500 trafficked Filipino migrant workers were brought to New Orleans, Louisiana, United States to work for the major oil exploration corporation Grand Isle Shipyard (GIS). GIS has numerous violations of workers rights, migrant rights, and human rights such as: labor abuse, wage theft and exploitation, unlawful deductions, isolation and violation of freedom of movement, violation of privacy, stolen tax refunds, violation of freedom of religion, threat of deportation, and unsafe working conditions.

The case of the Filipino workers against GIS has brought over 100 Filipino workers together to fight for their rights as workers and migrants, and has the potential to bring up to 500 Filipino workers together in a class action lawsuit against GIS. We STAND UP for Workers Rights, CHANT to make our voices Heard, and SING in Solidarity with the GIS Filipino workers fighting for migrant and workers rights for ALL!

Bring your Placards! Alliance & Member Organization FLAGS!
CALLS:
STOP TRAFFICKING OUR PEOPLE
