Colombia: Santos el imprudente (¿?) Jun 12 13
Colombian Paramilitaries Send Trade Unionists an Invitation to Their Own Funeral
SINTRAEMCALI Subjected to More Death Threats
The Black Eagles paramilitary group sent an extremely troubling death threat to the leadership of SINTRAEMCALI, a trade union in Valle de Cauca, Colombia, on April 21. The threat specifically targeted Jorge Ivan Velez and Albert Quintero, President and Vice-President of SINTRAEMCALI, and included an invitation to their own funeral. The union received the threat one week after President Obama announced that the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement would enter into effect beginning on May 15, 2012, and the threat highlights the precarious situation of labor rights in the country and the dangers faced by those who seek to defend them.
In addition to the threat signed by the Black Eagles paramilitary group, the package consisted of two bullets, two roses, and a prayer book stating that their deaths would occur “very soon.” This threat is extremely concerning because it demonstrates that the paramilitaries have carried out surveillance operations against members of SINTRAEMCALI.
