Here is their solidarity statement translated into English:
Attn: Transport Workers Union
From Mexico, we see with the pride and enthusiasm of the working class the “Occupy Wall Street” movement that is growing and extending to diverse cities of the United States.
The costs that neoliberalism is making us pay are very high, – poverty, unemployment, environmental contamination, insecurity and inequality, among others. You, as hundreds of thousands around the world, are showing an example of dignity and non-violent resistance to injustice.
Receive our most sincere solidarity in this fight to change the course of the things, in the construction of a new world.
National Executive Board, FAT
