Congresswoman Kaptur welcomes Diputado Suárez

U.S. Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-9) will welcome Mexican Diputado Victor Suárez Carrera to her district in Toledo and Lorain this Thursday and Friday, May 5-6.

Suárez, who hails from México City (D.F.), is one of the leaders of ANEC—the rejuvenated Mexican farmers’ movement, “El Campo no Auanta Más,” which roughly translated means: “The countryside can’t take it anymore.”  

Its purpose is to protect the farmers and protect them from some of the ravishing effects of eleven years of NAFTA, and to continue with some of the land reform for the campesinos that was initiated after the Mexican Revolution and, later, by Mexican President Lázaro Cárdenas.

ANEC’s premises and convictions include: “The countryside, rural society, and small, indigenous farmers and their heritage constitute a national priority and represent an indispensable sector;” and “the state is obliged to guarantee the right to a dignified life and to respect all human, economic, social, and cultural rights of the rural populations (the campesinos).”    

Suárez is serving as a federal representative (diputado) for the 16th district of México City (D.F.) in the Mexican Cámara de Diputados, which is equivalent to the U.S. House of Representatives, and, in that capacity, has worked closely with Congresswoman Kaptur on issues involving NAFTA and its effects on Mexican/U.S. economies and workers.  

Suárez and Congresswoman Kaptur will be in
Lorain on Thursday, May 5 at the Hungarian Reform Church, from 8:00-9:00PM, followed by a day in Toledo on Friday, May 6, where he will be making appearances at Little Flower Credit Union, The Andersons, the Farm Labor Organizing Committee (FLOC), and Lourdes College, in Sylvania.

The public is invited to attend his discussion of NAFTA at Lourdes College (from a Mexican perspective), from 7:30-8:30PM .
