Colombia: End violence and persecution of trade unionists
Author: LabourStart , Published on: 16 January 2014
Trade unionists in Colombia are consistently subjected to violence and persecution. The latest victim at a peaceful demonstration is the president of CUT and SINTRAELECOL-Caldas, Arturo Oscar Orozco. He was brutally attacked and remains in hospital in a very serious condition. The attacks, displacements, threats, assassinations as well as the criminalization of social protest, continues, corroborating the lack of political will to guarantee the exercise of freedom of association, collective bargaining and the right to strike in Colombia.
