Garment workers in El Salvador attempt to organize their factory in the face of anti-union repression, but management pulls out hoping to crush the movement. Thanks to international solidarity, in particular student organizing, the union not only forms but takes over production. Meanwhile in California, the AFSCME union calls a statewide strike at all UC campuses to win a new contract, and Santa Cruz becomes the focal point when students and workers shut down their university.

Come see how these events play out through two films
by Media Insurgente--Producing Just Garments and Estamos Aquí--followed by a discussion with the filmmakers and the workers involved in these struggles.
