We are very pleased to announce a tour of the United States by representatives of Colombia’s Marcha Patriótica (Patriotic March) and Lazos de Dignidad (Links of Dignity). The Patriotic March is Colombia’s largest Left movement for a just peace and popular participation in dialogue to end the country’s 50 year civil war. It has been a target of heavy repression, with 70 of its leaders assassinated in just two years time. Lazos de Dignidad provides legal representation and human rights training for Colombian political prisoners and agricultural workers unions. Lazos de Dignidad is also active in grassroots mobilizations for peace and human and labor rights.
This tour features July Henriquez Sampayo and Gustavo Gallardo Morales, speaking on two primary subjects:
- Rising Repression, International Solidarity and Colombia’s Peace Process
- Prison Imperialism and the Colombian Peace Process
SPONSORS: AFGJ, BALASC, and Task Force of the Americas
