Abuse of Immigrants at Slaughterhouses, Part Deux
When I wrote about Professor Erik Camayd-Freixas speaking up for migrants, I had yet to read his essay in its entirety. Here it is, and the events (and Camayd-Freixas’ commentary) are more appalling (though not shocking, knowing what our government is capable of) than I originally thought.
I recommend reading the essay, which is not unrelated to our activism (which of course can easily be deemed "terrorism" by government agencies that want to demonstrate success and legitimize their budgets, all the while not moving any closer to identifying and addressing any real threats).
The "fast-tracking" operation described was a dress rehearsal of sorts for a near future filled with the dehumanization, criminalization and imprisonment of people already being exploited by corporations (such as slaughterhouses) run by people who are unlikely to ever pay a similar price.
But enough from me. Let the Professor fill you in on all the details . . .
