This video is about a Colombian miners demonstration.
A video, no longer on the Internet, used to say about itself:
Colombian trade union leader Jesús Lorenzo Brochero Erazo talks about his union Sintracarbon, the union representing workers in the Cerrejon coal mine, one of the largest open pit coal mines in the world. He is visiting Canada to highlight Colombian union and social movement opposition to the 2008 Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement.

Five years after its filing, a civil lawsuit against Drummond Coal, an Alabama-based energy corporation, began in US District Court in Birmingham, Alabama on Monday, July 9, before a 10-member jury. The suit, filed by the United Steelworkers (USW) and the International Labor Rights Fund (ILRF)—representing families of the victims—alleges that the coal giant’s Colombian subsidiary arranged and financed the assassinations of three union leaders in Colombia in 2001.
In April of that year, members of the right-wing paramilitary organization Autodefensas Unidas de Colombia (AUC) stopped a bus carrying workers at the firm’s La Loma operation. The gunmen pulled Valmore Locarno, local president of the Sintamienergética miners union, and Vice President Victor Orcasita off the bus and murdered them. Gustavo Soler, who replaced Mr. Locarno as president of the local, was shot later that year.
