Brown faces call to end military support for Colombia
David Hencke, Westminster correspondent

Gordon Brown is facing demands from Labour and the TUC to distance himself from George Bush in a second area of foreign policy – by blocking arms sales and withdrawing all military aid to the US president’s staunchest Latin American ally, Colombia.
Up to 150 Labour MPs and union leaders are expected to table a motion at next month’s Labour party conference demanding the end of British military support to Colombia because of human rights abuses following a decision by Democrats in the US Congress to curb a $4bn (£1.99bn) anti-narcotics programme, aimed mainly at Colombia, which is seen as cover for US military aid.
Trade unionists from UNISON and Hammersmith Trades Council joined samba musicians, Iranian refugees and students from Sussex university on Colombia Solidarity Campaign’s emergency protest at Coca-Cola’s London Headquarters on 20 December.
