Interview with La Isla Foundation co-founder Jason Glaser & Benefit Show at the Pyramid Scheme 1/31

January 30, 2012

Earlier today we had a chance to sit down with Jason Glaser, President and co-founder of La Isla Foundation.

During our interview Jason talked about how he got involved in human rights work in Nicaragua, the mission of the foundation, the reality for sugar cane workers in that Central American country, the abuses in the agro-industrial sector and the international policies that create such injustices for working people around the world.

Jason talked about how the push for bio-fuels in the US and Europe has led to countless human rights abuses in countries like Nicaragua. La Isla Foundation not only does educational programs, they support and assist in organizing workers and they expose the industrial agricultural system that has helped to create the human rights crisis in that country.
