Event type: Delegation
Event region: Colombia

In Colombia, an insurgency-counterinsurgency war has left over
200,000 people dead since 1964 and displaced over three million others
from their homes. CPT’s Colombia delegations will meet with church,
human rights and social justice organizers in Bogotá,  then spend several days in the countryside where
communities have been subject to attack and threats by various armed
groups.

This delegation will be the first traveling to northeast Antioquia. In conjuction with the Corporation for Coexistence and Peace in Northeast Antioquia (CAHUCAPANA), participants will learn of the struggle of small farmers to have their human rights respected.
