Colombia: Campaign launched to combat death threats against trade unionists


On 26 October, death threats were sent to all 15 members of the Executive Committee of FECODE, the Colombian Federation of Education Workers (Federación Colombiana de Educadores), as well as to the President of the Trade Union Confederation CUT and former teacher and FECODE leader.

The threats come in the aftermath of national actions led by trade unions over the social, health, education and economic crisis in the country. FECODE is also leading an initiative to promote schools as zones of peace (territorios de paz) through community dialogues.
