CWAers Protest Mass Arrests of Union Organizers in the Philippines

November 14, 2019

CWA Secretary-Treasurer Sara Steffens (left) addressed CWAers and other activist groups who rallied in D.C. against the arrest of union and progressive organizers in the Philippines. Those arrested included union organizer Anne Krueger, a strong friend and ally to CWA who hosted CWA members in her home when they visited during the 2016 Verizon strike. Thankfully, after 12 days of incarceration, Anne was temporarily freed. She still faces trumped up charges of illegal possession of firearms following the mass arrests of unionists and activists in Bacolod City on Oct. 31.
