July 8, 2024 to July 17, 2024: CPT Colombia Delegations (English Speaking)

The mining and farming communities of Northeast Antioquia fear a new escalation of violence by different armed groups in their territory. The lack of implementation of the peace agreements signed between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia -FARC- in 2016 has created an environment where there is no guarantee for establishing a comprehensive and lasting peace. Faced with the panorama of abandonment, the communities that walk in resistance accompanied by the Corporation for Humanitarian Action and Peaceful Coexistence of Northeast Antioquia – CAHUCOPANA, weave alternatives to war and build paths to move towards peace with social justice.

In this delegation, you will share with communities and grassroots organizations that resist violence and oppression, building peace day by day. You will hear directly about their commitment to a dignified life based on respect for Human Rights, and you will discover how you can be part of the change. (You will also learn how to sleep in a hammock and keep mosquitoes away). It will be a transformative learning experience.
