Colombia solidarity

Issue No. 1836

'IF YOU keep fucking around we are going to kill you all.' That threat was made by the Colombian army to workers at the EMCALI public utilities firm this week. The workers, based in the city of Cali in the South American country, are occupying offices and plants against the threat of privatisation. A year ago they beat off privatisation after an occupation.

Now the new extreme right wing Colombian government is mounting a new offensive.
