EU Commissioner For Trade questioned for trade deal with Columbia despite continuing murder of trade union activists

Paul Murphy writes: "In this video from the European Parliament I question Commissioner For Trade Karl De Gucht on trade deal with Columbia despite continuing murder of trade union activists by death squads.

In his speech, the Commissioner referred to the former government of Colombia, the government of Uribe, as “operating in good faith”. This government has just been found guilty of working hand in hand with death squads responsible for the killing of trade unionists.

In the video, I challenge the Commissioner on this statement, and put him under pressure to justify his bizarre statements."
