Season 1, Episode 4 - "Justice For Mushrooms 4: Part 2"
By Rhea Gamana, Luisito Queano and Rick Esguerra
In the third episode of IMPACT, four Filipino mushroom workers in Canada bravely come out to the public as undocumented workers to tell their fateful stories of being trafficked by a recruitment agency. The exploited workers are tired of being scared and keeping their situation a secret.
By sharing their experiences, they also encourage fellow migrant workers to speak out and "fight with them".
Interviewees include: Marisol Bobadilla, Lourdes dela Pena, Maila Ceguerra & Jessie Veneranda (Justice for Mushroom 4 Campaign and members of Filipino migrant organisation Migrante-Ontario).
"Real Human Interest Stories ranging from the ordinary to the truly extraordinary."
IMPACT is a production of VX3 Exchange.
