Good Evening You great defender!

There is a mess in Colombia that the Colombian Govt. need to take care of and You can make them aware of it. You can send the text below to the Embassy of Colombia in Your country or if You live in Sweden use this: embcol@telia.com

Thanx in advance and I wish You a wonderful summer-day!

Dear Ambassador,

It is with great concern that I contact You. It has come to my knowledge that on 17th of June a trade unionist Mr. Nelson Camacho González, was shot dead in Barrancabermeja, Colombia. Nelson Camacho was a member of the local branch of the oil worker’s union USO, (Unión Sindical Obrera).

As a fighter for human rights I am concerned for the safety of other members of USO and other trade union and human rights activists in the department of Santander.

I urge the authorities to provide them with effective protection in strict accordance with their wishes.

I also call on the authorities to carry out a full, swift and impartial investigation into the killing of Nelson Camacho González, for the results to be made public and for those responsible to be brought to justice.

Yours respectfully,
