From Justice for Colombia
The National Trade Union School [NTUS], a EU funded research institution based in Medellin, Colombia, records 94 assassinations of trade unionists in 2004, an increase on the 90 trade unionists that both the NTUS and the International Confederation of Free Trade Unions (ICFTU) registered killed in 2003.
The NTUS has also reported an increase in “disappearances” and arbitrary detentions.
This deterioration contrasts with Colombian government claims that human rights abuses against trade union members are declining. Send messages of protest to:
