28 February, 2013

Mexico has no embassy in Norway, so Fellesforbundet has led other kinds of activities in connection with the Mexico Days of Action:

The Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions has sent a letter to the new Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto with a powerful protest on the developments on trade union rights in Mexico.

The unions have had contacts with the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs explaining the whole history of trade union violations since the Pasta de Conchos tragedy in 2006. The Norwegian deputy minister has promised that next time a Norwegian official visit to Mexico takes place, they will take this up with Mexican officials, and hopefully be able to meet with Los Mineros to get first hand information on developments.
