Nestlé labor unionists murdered in Colombia

The Swiss multinational corporation
Nestlé is already quite infamous for its brutal policies like promoting artificial foods for babies among the poor (causing infant malnutrition), benefitting from slave labor at cocoa plantations around the world and closely collaborating with the racist Israeli regime.

But there is yet another dark chapter for Nestlé now: 12 workers of their company Nestlé Purina PetCare de Colombia S.A. have been murdered in the last years for being active in the labor union SINALTRAINAL, murders that, of course, are not being investigated by the corrupt regime of Bogotá. The last victim is Gustavo Gómez, murdered this August 21st by sicarios who put 10 bullets in his body.

SINALTRAINAL denounces the attitude of the government of Álvaro Uribe, which does not investigate, persecute nor punish such criminals, while whitewashing the reality towards the foreign public opinion and, at the same time, actively persecuting unionists in the press and the tribunals.
