Faces of the Displaced in Colombia

by Witness for Peace--Upper Midwest

A Witness for Peace delegation, "Living with Hope in the Context of Violence," traveled to Colombia in February. We will share what we learned about the impact of the internal conflict on the people. We met with rural people - campesinos, indigenous people and Afro-Colombians - civic leaders and human rights defenders, who told us of their nonviolent resistance to displacement and their efforts to build sustainable communities. They also asked us to be in solidarity with them and to advocate for US economic and military policies that are just and peaceful. Come hear their testimony and join us in actions on their behalf.
