The #Not1More Hunger Strikers Meet with AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, Urgency to Stop Deportations Heightens Before May Day

April 30, 2014

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka last week met with hunger strikers from the #Not1More campaign who are protesting the more than 2 million deportations that are tearing families apart from each other and hurting communities. At the AFL-CIO headquarters in Washington, D.C., Trumka addressed the three dozen hunger strikers, hailing from New Orleans and Springfield, Mass., and expressed his appreciation for “calling attention to this untenable, unacceptable situation.”
