BERLIN: CPT Europe public witness supports Las Pavas community’s return to its land

 On 25 March 2011, under an overcast sky, a group of CPTers walk slowly with heads bowed from the Wittenbergplatz U-Bahn station towards the Colombian embassy in Berlin, Germany. At the embassy, the group divided, with most of participants remaining in the entrance hall, performing a Beatitudes-based Lenten litany with the theme of embracing justice and hope amid the circumstances of land displacement and corporate greed.  Meanwhile, a smaller group walked upstairs to deliver a letter to the ambassadress. This letter, composed by CPT Colombia, highlights the history and current situation of the Las Pavas community.
