Congratulations to Michael for securing this commitment to action, and we hope it will help improve the situation of our fellow trade unionists in Colombia.
Our branch has for some years made a small annual donation to Justice for Colombia, an organisation which fights against the extreme oppression that trade union activists in Colombia have often endured. A historic peace agreement has recently been announced there, although persecution of trade unionists is still occurring. More information is available on Justice for Colombia's website.
