Latino leaders from across the United States have formed a coalition dedicated to exposing Carlos Slim, the world’s richest man, and the alleged predatory, monopolistic methods with which he has amassed his fortune.

“People are in awe of this man and his wealth while ignoring how he’s acquired it. He has crippled the Mexican economy through his business practices and has single handedly kept millions in poverty, all while lining his own pockets,” said Andres Ramirez, coalition spokesperson and nationally renowned Hispanic leader.

The new coalition, Two Countries One Voice – will be introducing themselves and their cause this Tuesday when they call on George Washington University to sever ties with Carlos Slim. They will be demanding that George Washington University officials disinvite him from the graduation commencement ceremonies on the National Mall and revoke his honorary degree.
