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.
