Violence Against Worker Advocates in Colombia

The United States House Labour Committee is holding a hearing on violence against worker advocates in Colombia. It will be live streamed, with videoclips on You Tube within twenty-four hours: http://edlabor.house.gov/hearings/2009/02/examing-workers-rights-and-vio.shtml. Some 2,700 labour union leaders have been killed over the past decade. The killings are not adequately investigated and prosecuted by the Colombian authoritites.
Thanks to Mike Kruger.
