Colombia - Protest by ASOTRASDIMENE members at Ecopetrol in Barrancabermeja repressed

On 10 May 2017, a group of 16 workers, members of ASOTRASDIMENE, an association representing mining and energy industry workers with work-related illnesses and injuries, who had been dismissed by Ecopetrol in Barrancabermeja, Santander, chained themselves to the entrance of the company in protest at the unfair dismissals of workers with health problems. The protesters were violently dislodged that same day.
