Moist criticized Harper for making Canada the only country in the Americas that did not explicitly call for Zelaya’s reinstatement.
Unlike most governments, Canada did not recall its ambassador. Nor did it cut loans and aid (unlike the US and World Bank).
On Jul. 22 CUPE received a statement from CODEMUH (attached below)– the women’s organization the union supports through the Global Justice Fund with the HEU and CoDevelopment Canada.
They report employers forcing women maquila workers to participate in pro- coup demonstrations - so-called “Marches for Peace”.
CUPE condemns the actions of these employers and we will be keeping in close contact with our sisters at CODEMUH.
