Mercedes manager faces trial. Say no to refugee detention camps!


In human rights work, abuses committed by repressive regimes and the routine exploitation of workers by transnational corporations are often seen as two separate battlefields. However, in many cases, these different forms of injustice actually overlap in the perpetration of human rights violations. This is one reason why we at ECCHR continue our fight against injustice on multiple fronts.

Last August, an Argentine court finally decided that a former manager of Mercedes-Benz Argentina will face trial for assisting the military dictatorship in the enforced disappearance of two trade unionists in the late 1970s. At the time, the majority of the independent work council, roughly 15 workers, were forcibly disappeared. Read more about this case, among others, in this newsletter.
