Republicans Cheer Murders of Colombian Labor Leaders
Tuesday 27 September 2011
And now, labor leaders murdered in Colombia — Republicans say “A good start…”
See the comments under an article at The Hill about how many labor leaders have been killed in Colombia — 15 since the US signed on to a treaty: AFL-CIO President Trumka sends list of killed Colombian labor leaders to Obama – TheHill.com
Republicans are swarming the comments. Example:
“What do you call a list of 22 dead labor leaders?
A good start…”
