...and the lunatic George W. Bush's regime gives it moral(?) and financial and military backing to THIS?
There were dangerous signs of an increase in the systematic and selective violence against the unions, with 78 trade unionists murdered during the year, following a small decline in the last few years. Impunity remained the main obstacle to the exercise of trade union rights in Colombia this year too, given the involvement of paramilitary groups and national security officials in most of the assassinations of trade unionists in recent years. The education sector remains the most at risk in terms of violent acts, with a total number of 39 murders, i.e. 50 per cent of the total. The number of cases of harassment of trade unionists has also risen.
