March 2012 - Members of the union Sinaltrainal stage a hunger strike in front of the parliament building in Bogotá. They are protesting against Coca-Cola.

"Coca-Cola fights a war against the workers", says one of the protesters in this video. Displacement, murder, lay-offs, and suing for defamation in the courts are some of the means used. The hunger strike started when Coca-Cola violated the collective contract and called several members of Sinaltrainal "terrorists" and reported them to the police.

An international conference will be held in Wuppertal/Germany on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the founding of Sinaltrainal: Transnational Companies, Union Struggles, and International Solidarity: Focus Colombia (in German).
