Colombia: Drop sanctions against trade union leader [reminder]

Colombia: Drop sanctions against trade union leader [reminder] r1 ... Carlos.I sent this message to you about 10 days ago - but I'm not sure you saw it. (If you did, I'm sorry for the reminder.) This is an important campaign and we need MANY more people to send off messages of protest. Thanks.

Carlos E. Castañeda Ravelo is the president of a public sector union in Colombia.

In 2006, he was dismissed from his job and banned for ten years from holding public office because he dared to express his support for a political candidate.

He is still banned, even though ten years have passed.

Public Services International, representing public sector trade unions around the world, is protesting this ban, which is in breach of ILO conventions and Colombian law.

Please take a moment to show your support for Carlos, and demand that the Colombian government lift the ban:

And please share this message with your friends, family and fellow union members.

Thank you!
