“Today’s GM will do the right thing”
– Mary Barra, GM CEO (April 1, 2014)
If GM is doing the “right thing,” then
  • Why did the Colombian Labor Ministry fine GM over $200,000 for illegally firing injured GM workers? – 5/2016
  • Why did a Colombian judge issue GM a fine, and sentence the plant manager to 3 days in jail, for refusing a court order to re-instate injured workers? – 8/2017
  • Why do GM workers continue to be injured on the job?  And then fired?
  • Why is GM continuing to refuse to reach a fair settlement with workers injured and fired in 2011 (members of ASOTRECOL)?

* ASOTRECOL is an association of injured workers illegally fired by GM from an assembly plant in Colombia without compensation or health care. They’ve occupied a tent since Aug. 2011 in front of the U.S. Embassy to expose the unsafe working conditions, and press GM for a fair settlement.  Their non-violent actions of witness, including symbolic crucifixions and several hunger strikes—with lips sewn shut—have garnered worldwide attention.
