Dear friends,
three years ago, some injured workers of General Motors in Bogota / Colombia were laid off. They started a struggle in front of the embassy of the United States in Bogota, visited the GM headquarter in Detroit / Michigan and suffered long hunger strikes. They got a lot of support from all over the world. They organized this long and courageous struggle with their union ASOTRECOL.
