UNISON condemns horrific violent government reaction against trade union protesters in Colombia

UNISON NI condemns the horrific violent government reaction, mounting death toll and growing numbers of 'disappeared' in Colombia in response to trade union organised protests.

Protests began on Wednesday 28 April in response to a proposed tax reform which will deepen poverty but protesters have also been calling for an end to the human rights crisis and for greater implementation of the peace agreement. We are joining with others unions in ICTU and the TUC calling on both the UK and Irish Governments to speak out.
