TOPIC Sinaltrainal

For over 30 years the Columbian Trade Union for Food Sinaltrainal has tried to defend against the increasing assaults made by transnational corporations, above all Coca-Cola. The price to pay was 9 murdered Coca-Cola unionists, 12 murdered Nestlè unionists as well as permanent death threats, abduction threats and attempts at intimidation by the ultra-right paramilitary. In 2002 Sinaltrainal initiated the International Campaign against Coca-Cola to bring attention to the persecution. The campaign was picked up and supported by social movements worldwide. It was resumed in September 2007.
