Prayers for Peacemakers, 27 December 2017  Colombia

 

Pray for the families of El Guayabo, Colombia driven off
their land by the municipal authorities of Puerto Wilches in a process riddled
with legal irregularities.
  A wealthy
landowner, Rodrigo Lopez Henao, has harassed the families for years and the
authorities have colluded with him, despite the rights of the families to
remain on the land under Colombian law.

Campesinxs from El Guayabo were evicted from their lands in a procedure full of irregularities and state violence. No humanitarian 

aid was provided and their fundamental rights have been continuously violated. The community gathered to worship and reflect

around the parable of the unjust judge and the widow (Luke 18:1-8).
