Colombia: ‘Long live the farmers’ strike’

April 28, 2014 - Solidarity with Colombian peasants (“campesinos”) who went back on strike yesterday.

Producers of coffee, but also rice, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, sugarcane and cocoa say the government has failed to implement reforms agreed after farmer protests in August last year that turned violent and blocked key highways for days.

Negotiations during two previous strikes in February and August 2013 led to seemingly positive results and commitments by the Santos administration which were not honored after the strikes ended. the president lied to the farmers and the country.

The Colombian government is handing out sweetheart deals to international mining companies while creating bans and roadblocks for Colombian miners. Likewise, the government is giving multinational food corporations access to land earmarked for poor Colombians

Since May 2012, Colombia has seen free trade agreements with the United States, Canada and the European Union go into effect.Colombia also signed an agreement with Israel in June. 

The president lied to the farmers and the country.
