Maquilapolis Description:
"As Carmen and a million other maquiladora workers produce televisions,
electrical cables, toys, clothes, batteries and IV tubes, they weave the very
fabric of life for consumer nations. They also confront labor violations,
environmental devastation and urban chaos -- life on the frontier of the global
economy. In MAQUILAPOLIS, Carmen and her colleague Lourdes reach beyond the
daily struggle for survival to organize for change: Carmen takes a major
television manufacturer to task for violating her labor rights. Lourdes
pressures the government to clean up a toxic waste dump left behind by a
departing factory."
