Huber was arrested just days before he was due to come and speak at the 2013 TUC Conference. International solidarity has played a key role in pressuring for his release – Justice for Colombia has led a high-profile campaign for Huber’s freedom, supported by the major trade unions, Unite, UNISON and the TUC, as well as numerous MPs in the Parliamentary Friends of Colombia. Thanks to the tireless lobbying of many MPs and trade unionists the British Embassy in Colombia has also been extremely helpful in monitoring his case. More than 13,000 people signed a petition calling for his release and numerous British and Irish trade unionists have visited Huber in his cell during JFC delegations to Colombia.
