Maquiladora workers and their families live in the Derechos Humanos and Fuerza y Unidad barrios in Matamoros. The neighborhoods are contaminated by toxic chemicals dumped by factories into the canal which runs by the houses, and by the dumping of white powder chemical waste from the Quimica Fluor plant (which makes hydrofluoric acid) onto the dirt roads between the houses. - David Bacon - 2006-11-05
