Say NO! to corporate financed assassinations of trade unionists in 
Colombia!
 
Join us for an in-depth discussion on conditions for workers and union 
organizing in Colombia and how the Colombia Free Trade Agreement would 
hurt workers, families and human rights both in Colombia and the US.

Edgar Paez, International representative of SINALTRAINAL (Food Industry 
Workers Union) of Colombia will visit Boston on Tuesday March 25, 2008, 
as part of a national tour of the U.S. - http://www.sinaltrainal.org/

Edgar Paez has dedicated his entire life to organizing workers and has 
worked actively connecting social struggles in Colombia and the world 
over. More than 4000 trade unionists have been killed in Colombia in the 
last 20 years --- more than in the rest of the world combined. Nine have 
been killed so far this year.

SINALTRAINAL represents Colombian workers of several well-know 
multi-national corporations in the food and beverage industries. Many 
SINALTRAINAL activists have been killed. SINALTRAINAL is conducting mass 
campaigns and legal battles to defend trade unionists against these 
attacks.
