James Jordan will be speaking at UWM on Friday, May 7th at 6pm. He is a member of the Alliance for Global Justice, and their project: Campaign for Labor Rights. He has been on, and led, delegations all over Latin America. He was in Haiti just before the earthquake, on his return to the states, he was detained by the Department of Homeland Security.

He has led a number of delegations to Colombia (he will be returning to Colombia in August), where he has met with rural farmers, labor union activists, and labor leaders. He will be speaking on the state of the labor struggle in Colombia, and his experiences in a country which has been at the center of the struggle against U.S. Imperialism.
