OPSEU Colombia Solidarity
Working people everywhere
share common goals: “An Injury to One is an Injury to All"
It is on this basis that OPSEU
carries out its international solidarity work.
Colombia is a country where trade unionists and human rights
defenders are killed on a daily basis – just for performing
what we would consider normal activities. OPSEU recently
sent a delegation to Colombia to examine the situation and
to provide support to those who are fighting for social
justice in that country.
