    IF CAPITAL CAN CROSS BORDERS, SO CAN WE! Nearly 800,000 people migrate across each year in search of work. Mothers and fathers are forced to leave their families behind. Migrants trek through dangerous conditions going to where globalization takes jobs. It's time that international trade agreements be held accountable.

    SI EL CAPITAL PUEDE CRUZAR LAS FRONTERAS, TAMBIEN PODEMOS NOSOTROS! Casi 800,000 personas emigran cada ano en busqueda de trabjo. Madres y padres son forzados a dejar atras a sus familias. Los migrantes atraviezan condiciones peligrosas para llegar a donde la globalizacion lleva los trabajos. Ya es hora que los acuerdos de comercio internacionales se hagan responsables.
