Another Gran Colombia Gold (GCM.to) murder

What fun. The need-to-know is:

Fernando Augusto Silva Henao, 45, one of the leaders of the miners working for Gran Colombia Gold (GCM.to) was shot dead last Thursday after leaving his home on the way to work. He took six bullets. Suspicion has fallen on the ultra-right-wing UrabeƱos paramilitary group in the area, because the workers have refused to pay them any more protection money. The approximate 1,500 workers are now on strike t protest the insecurity under which they work.
