Impunity in Colombia: One Woman's Story with Yessika Hoyos Morales

The U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement is currently pending in Congress,
while Colombian trade unionists continue to be threatened and murdered
everyday, and the Colombian government continues to participate and
systematically violate human rights.  

As a victim of violence herself, Ms. Hoyos is co-founder of Sons and Daughters
Against Impunity and for the Memory of the Fallen, an organization for children
of victims of disappearance, torture, exile, and murder in Argentina, Chile,
and other Latin American countries.  She is also the recipient of the 2008
AFL-CIO George Meany-Lane Kirkland Human Rights Award.
