In response to recent death threats in the northeastern Department of La Guajira, the Colombian TUC has issued a statement calling for the protection of trade unionists in the region.

A death threat had been issued by a group claiming to be a combination of two paramilitary groups, the “Combined Urban Command of the Rastrojos and Black Eagles”, which declared that all trade unionists and members of the political opposition had been served death sentences.
