Joe Hill Watch. Rodrigo Alexis Cisternas Shot in Chile
CHILE: FORESTRY WORKER KILLED
Last week, 26 year old Rodrigo Alexis Cisternas, a forestry worker in Chile was shot three times by police, and died. He was killed during a strike involving 7,000 workers. His union (and the global union federation representing forestry workers, the BWI) are asking all of us to take a moment and send a message to the Chilean government demanding an investigation of this crime, and to ensure that workers' rights are respected. Please take a moment to send off your message -- and to pass this on to others.
