We are a coalition of grassroots organizations and individual activists from Canada, the United States, and Mexico who are concerned about threats to the peace process in Colombia. Read more….
On September 27, 2019, the Coalition for Peace in Colombia and the People’s Human Rights Observatory (Observatorio de los Derechos Humanos de los Pueblos) will formally kick off our new campaign to promote the People’s Travel Advisory on Colombia. We will deliver documents to Colombian embassies and consulates to let them know the world is watching what is happening in Colombia, and to make our two demands:
- An end to the genocide against the social movements and the rural, indigenous, and Afro-Colombian communities;
- Fulfillment of the government’s obligations with respect to the Peace Accord.
