7-30pm Belfast Unemployed Centre
Luis Eduardo Garcia, a Colombian Coca Cola Worker and member of SINALTRAINAL the Food and Drink Workers Union, is in Ireland to call on Irish workers and Irish people to support the international campaign aimed at ending the murder of trades unionists in the Coca Cola bottling plants in Colombia.
The Belfast visit is being sponsored by UNISON and the local Colombian Workers Solidarity Campaign.
Luis will address a public meeting in the Belfast
Unemployed Centre at 7-30pm and is hoping to meet
local people who have supported the campaign in
defence of Coca Cola workers here in Belfast. The John Hewitt Bar and the Cultúrlann were among the first to come out in defence of the Coca Cola workers and Luis is particularly to meet with representatives of these organisations and thank them for their support.
Ireland is the first leg of a world wide tour to
publicise the plight of the Coca Cola workers. Luis will also speak in Dublin on Wednesday to UCD students who voted for the Coca Cola Boycott and in Sandino's Bar in Derry on Monday.
