San Salvador, El Salvador – March 14, 2014

Defender Network Strategy Meeting  
 
The second event of the day was a strategy meeting with members of the Defender Network in El Salvador, where CARITAS - Diocesis de San Miguel, Grupo de Monitoreo Independiente de El Salvador (GMIES), Organización De Mujeres Salvadoreñas Por La Paz (ORMUSA), and Universidad Gerardo Barrios - Facultad de Ciencias Jurídicas, all gathered to share progress reports on the work of the network and to plan subsequent actions.
 
Joaquin Cardenas from Gerardo Barrios University gave an update about the research they are conducting on the migrant population in El Salvador. Initial research already shows that Honduran workers who go to El Salvador for jobs face abuses in the workplace and discrimination related to their migration status. GMIES presented the results of a public hearing request before the Interamerican Commission on Human Rights – IACHR. The request was submitted in coordination with Global Workers to bring Governments from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and the United States before the IACHR to respond to concerns surrounding working conditions and rights violations of temporary workers in the region. Although the hearing request was denied, a report will be release as a result of the work that has been done on the topic.
