The international organization Women's Link Worldwide has recently reported on its website that, with the support of 7 other organizations, "it has sent an urgent communication to different organizations of the United Nations Organization, reporting on the human rights violations suffered by Moroccan seasonal workers and other migrants who work in the strawberry and red fruit harvest in Huelva."
Faced with this accusation, Interfresa, the Interprofessional Strawberry and Red Fruit Organization of Andalusia, has issued a statement in which it deeply laments those alleged illegal practices, since the Interprofessional stands strongly behind the law, and it hopes that the criminal justice system will quickly and effectively elucidate the true nature of those actions, so that the good work of the vast majority is not spoiled by the alleged actions of a minority."
The Interprofessional also wished to put on record that they have "the most scrupulous respect for the actions of the inspection and the State Security Forces, who protect the rights of all the people who work in our sector."
In its statement, Interfresa stresses that "it is collaborating closely and on a daily basis with the Guardia Civil, which is why we are familiar with their work and the zeal with which their investigations and actions are carried out. This brings peace of mind to the interprofessional organization and the entities that are part of it (Asaja-Huelva, Freshuelva and Cooperativas Agro Alimentarias), as well as to everyone carrying out their activities under the rule of law."
