The British government and the EU pick out the countries in Latin America where there are death squads. And do trade deals with them.
I guess they like the countries with death squads.
May be the coup leaders in Honduras are killing trade unionists because they think if the body count is high enough, the EU will restore ties and Gordon Brown will send over some foreign office MP like Chris Bryant.
One day Gordon Brown will get up in the middle of the night and the dead will walk with him on the way to the toilet. The people I know from Bagua are tough, I hope their ghosts haunt the living who conspired to kill them.
Yes I mean the average labour party MP who doesn't know and lets the government keep buddy buddy with Uribe and Garcia as the killing of indigenous people and trade unionists continues.
