The U.S. funded "War on Drugs" in Colombia has propped up brutal military forces and right-wing paramilitary death squads. This has led to the death of tens of thousands of civilians, including over 2,100 trade unionists that have been murdered since 1991. Between 75% and 90% of trade unionists killed worldwide are killed in Colombia. Now, the Bush Administration wants to expand NAFTA to Colombia and Peru as part of the Andean Free Trade Agreement (AFTA). In Colombia, privatization and free trade economic policies damaging to workers are being enforced through brutal violence.
Come meet Rene and help build a global movement for workers rights and social justice!
Say "no" to the Andean Free Trade Agreement (AFTA)!
