Based on those criticisms, civil society organizations such as OIDHACO (International Office for Human Rights Action on Colombia, which represents over thirty human rights organizations), CUT, CTC (Confederacion de Trabajadores de Colombia), and RECALCA opposed this FTA and demanded additional guarantees to ensure the protection of human rights.
