Protest against Colombian President’s visit to Ottawa

June 9, 2009

The Canadian government wants to quickly wrap up a free trade deal with Colombia, a country with the worst human rights record in the Americas. 

Canada is now Colombia’s top trade target. If Canada gives its 
seal of approval for “business as usual” with Colombia it undercuts the struggle for human rights improvements.

Canada says it’s committed to promoting democracy, respect 
for human rights, and the rule of law in the Americas. Ratifying a free trade deal with a murderous regime sends the wrong message!

Demonstration set for Wed, June 10 at 1:00 PM

Canadians say “No” to a deadly trade deal!

Canadians stand up for human rights!
