I am sending you this information solely to give you the reasons why we as Trade Unionist's fell so strongly about our non support 
for the "La Raza Galleria Posadas's" decision to enlist the Mexican Governments "Secretaria de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE) "sponsorship"
of the "Malo Concert",and the reasons we will continue to support the Mexican Workers "Resistance Movement" in Mexico,it is they that have
taken the vanguard to declare we refuse to be converted to Migrants and go to a  "Racist Country" of ignorance,greed,exploitation and Racism.

This attitude of the "la Raza Galleria and its Bd members reminds us when in the very early days of the Farm workers movement we had those that were against us for being "Militant" in our Strike in Delano for workers rights this was way before it became  popular to even weara "Huelga" button,but we prevailed and hear we are again in the most important time in our lives in where we are being asked to stand  for what is right and we get this "I'm Not interested in Politic's" I just want to make believe that as long as i have my music and Corona I could give a dam about what's happening Just leave us alone,not interested". is NOT acceptable.

Solidarity with Mexican Electrical Worker's Union (SME)

Mexican Federal Police have seized the plants of the Central Light and Power Company of Mexico, which provides electricity to Mexico City and several states in central Mexico. The government of President Felipe Calderón announced that the company would be liquidated and all its approximately 45,000 workers fired, which would mean the destruction of the Mexican Electrical Workers Union (SME). SME has asked for international solidarity in resisting the government liquidation of their company, the termination of the workers, and thus the destruction of the union.
