Our May delegation should be especially appealing to those involved in
organized labour. Colombia
continues to be the most dangerous place on earth for trade unionists. Participants in this delegation will
meet with public and private sector union leaders, as well as organized
informal sector self-employed workers. Activists in all three groups are threatened because of their
efforts to protect workersâ€™ rights and livelihoods.
Participants will also spend some time in north-east
Antioquiaâ€”the state/province hardest hit by anti-labor violenceâ€”where they will
be hosted by our partner, human rights organization CAHUCOPANA, and learn about
its grassroots struggle to promote and defend the human rights of campesino
farmers, artisanal miners, and organized labour.
Participants will also learn about how the Canadian and U.S.
â€śfree tradeâ€ť agreements with Colombia have adversely affected Colombian and
North American workersâ€™ rights.
