Brazil - Trade unionist sacked for denouncing a death
On March 12th, Joaquim Aristeu Benedito da Silva, a leading trade unionist working for AmBev in Jacareí (São Paulo state) was sacked.
The allegation by the company was that he published on the web page of CSP-Conlutas (a trade union and popular movement federation) and on social networks an article denouncing the company for an accident in the factory that led to the death of a young contract worker.
Solidarity and protest messages should be sent urgently.
