La Huelga de Cananea: Los obreros Mexicanos reclaman igualdad de derechos frente a los obreros Yanquis. Grabado de Pablo O’Higgins.

Manuel M. Diéguez, Esteban Baca Calderón y numerosos mineros organizaron la gloriosa huelga de Cananea, en Sonora, con el propósito de obtener ligera mejoría para sus compañeros de trabajo. Con lojo de fuerza y con el auxilio de tropas norteamericanas, el movimiento huelguístico fué disuelto y los líderes obreros enviados a las tenebrosas tinajas de San Juan de Uhía.


The Cananea Strike: Mexican workers claim equal rights against Yankee workers. Print by Pablo O'Higgins.

Manuel M. Diéguez, Esteban Baca Calderón and numerous miners organized the glorious Cananea strike in Sonora, with the purpose of obtaining a slight improvement for their co-workers. With a sense of strength and the aid of North American troops, the strikers’ movement was dissolved and the workers' leaders were sent to the dark tinajas of San Juan de Uhía.
