Colombia: New death threats against leaders of the FECODE education union

NEU Joint General Secretaries have written to the President of the Republic of Colombia to demand immediate protection measures for all FECODE Executive Committee members after death threats were sent to all 15 members. The threats come in the aftermath of national actions led by trade unions over the social, health, education and economic crisis in the country. Read the letter here. You can also take action by signing the LabourStart petition holding the authorities accountable to ensure immediate protection.
