The Coalition of Black Trade Unionists International support of Afro Colombian workers caught in the civil war between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia ( aka FARC).

Join hosts Tina Turner-Morfitt, Dr. Audrey Terrell, Ms. Deborah Hall in a discussion with William "Bill" Lucy, President Emeritus of  Coalition of Black Trade Unionists International. The topic of our discussion with Brother Lucy will highlight the  International's support of our Afro-Colombian brothers and sisters who were harshly targeted in the 50 year  civil war  between the Colombian Government and  the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (aka FARC).  Afro-Colombians have faced high levels of displacement, unemployment  and have been  victims of violence in far greater numbers of any other major constituency in the country. Brother Lucy will update our audience on the the anticipated impact of the peace agreement and the continuing support of  the Coalition of Black Trade Unionists International to our Colombian brothers and sisters.
