Notes:
Part of a 5 poster set produced by the Taller Tupac Amaru collective about the international immigrant rights movement. 2000 copies were produced. A historic gathering took place in this past May 2008 in Mexico City, and brought together over 300 migrant leaders from the United States, Asia, Europe, Africa and Latin America to form a global association of remitters and their families. The event helped consolidate remitters’ economic and political power and gave them the space to define an agenda for the sustainable economic development of migrant communities. The conference was convened by TIGRA (Transnational Institute for Grassroots Research and Action).
