- On Independent Monitoring and Latin
- By Lynda Yanz, 26 January 1998. Meeting hosted by the
Independent Monitoring Group in El Salvador (GIMES) for
dealing with conditions in the maquilas. It also held a
public forum on January 13 and 14 to discuss their
experience and that of other Central American groups.
- Rights Set Back 100 Years in Duty-Free
- Mario Osava, IPS, 20 May 1999. Duty-free maquiladora
zones for the assembly of exports in Central America and
the Caribbean mean even the most basic rights are
trampled. The maquiladoras, mainly textile plants, are a
major source of jobs, but disregard the laws of the
countries where they operate.
