Eyewitness Report on Militant Puerto Rico Teachers' Union Struggles
The Teachers Federation of Puerto Rico (FMPR) is one of the most militant and active group of teachers in the world. It is democratically run and represents the 40,000 teachers of Puerto Rico.
Join us for a special presentation by Puerto Rican film maker and FMPR supporter Pedro Angel Rivera, who will speak about the struggle of the union to maintain its independence and its right to strike.
Pedro Angel Rivera is a labor film maker in Puerto Rico who won recognition with his films "Operation Bootstrap" and "Plena Is Song, Plena Is Work." He is now producing labor videos for the FMPR and will screen a short video on the recent teachers' struggle.
