Death threat made against trade union leader after denouncing actions of multinational oil company
Death threat left at the doorstep of trade unionist. “Death to all snitches from the USO trade union”
In a further demonstration of the anti-trade union violence in Colombia and the connection between multinational companies and paramilitary violence, a trade union leader from the USO oil workers has received a death threat just days after taking part in an event looking at the impact of large-scale mining projects. The event was held in Puerto Gaitan in the Meta Department where the Canadian multinational Pacific Rubiales is particularly active.
