There are Colombian workers which have been exploited and fired by a Colombian GM manufacturing plant for injuries they recieved while on the job. They have been in a fight against the subsidiary for over a year and now are in a hunger strike. They started the strike on August 1st, and sewed their own mouths shut as a bold statement to GM. This day is a national day of action in which many other countries and cities have staged protests and actions, including in Detroit at the main plant.
