Wake up with a cup of Union Label, Organic Coffee and take a stand for peace and labor rights in Colombia!
FENSUAGRO is Colombia’s largest federation of peasant farmers and farm workers unions. Its represents 50% family and cooperative farmers and 50% farm workers. It is also the most repressed and targeted labor organization in Colombia – the world’s most dangerous country to be a union member. Since its formation in 1976, more than 1,500 of Fensuagro’s organizers have been assassinated. Fensuagro represents the population hardest hit by forced displacement due to the armed conflict, transnational corporate land-grabs, and climate change. Despite these obstacles, Fensuagro is a fierce defender of its constituency. The federation has led several successful national and regional strikes, won better deals for workers in the industries it represents, and advocated for political changes that benefit its members. Fensuagro works tirelessly to find and promote new markets for its small farming families and cooperatives.
