This is Alvaro. He is a Colombian teacher and trade unionist. He had to leave his country due to threats against his life. He got 6 months here with the help of the AFL-CIO, but now he has gone back. We are crossing our fingers. Colombia has the worst human rights record in the world for trade unionists.
