Unite Regional Secretary Jimmy Kelly is the only Irish member of a trade union delegation to Columbia being organised this week by Justice for Columbia.

Members of the delegation will meet with trade unions and human rights activists, and will visit the region of Cali to meet with agroindustry unions, peasant farmers and indigenous organisations.
