Nicaraguan Garment Workers Beaten at Walmart Supplier Factory

Published on Apr 3, 2013



Watch courageous garment workers in Nicaragua speak out about their efforts to improve their jobs and form a union and the subsequent, extreme retaliation they have experienced
including being brutally beaten March 4.

While peacefully protesting in front of the garment factory, workers were violently attacked when the company they work for - SAE-A, a Walmart garment supplier - paid a mob of more than 300 other workers to beat these employees, using scissors, metal pipes, and other weapons.

**Sign the petition**. Tell Walmart to demand its supplier reinstate the fired workers and follow the law.

Details are based on the findings of the Workers Rights Consortium. You can
