“The enemies of trade unionism are many: primarily the paramilitaries, but also the FARC and ELN, are killing union leaders, as well as some business leaders -very few- who don't want unions. As the State, which regulates social relations and protects human rights, we are not going to allow this to continue."
That was the speech that the Vice President Francisco Santos Calderón, made yesterday in Barranquilla during the meeting of the Security Council.
