Around 30 people met last Thursday 16th of October at the very heart of Dublin, the GPO, to stage a demo in solidarity with the Colombian popular and indigenous organisations in struggle for various demands, who have been met with full force by the repressive and dictatorial regime of Álvaro Uribe Vélez.
Our group expressed solidarity this way with the sugar-cane workers on strike, with the various government departments' workers on struggle, and with the Indigenous Movement who is on the march for their right to land and for their opposition against the FTA with the US. Also, we expressed our rejection of the criminalisation of social protests and strikes and to the State of emergency declared by Uribe to crack the workers' movement.
Against Repression: solidarity with the Indigenous and Popular Organisations of Colombia!!!
