Workshop on Humanitarian Law
This past weekend the Peace Brigades International – Colombia Project travelled on the Magdalena River with Credhos to the village of Puerto Matilde where Credhos provided a workshop on international humanitarian law to local residents.
Puerto Matilde has been subjected to the armed conflict for decades.
Credhos has been promoting human rights in the Magdalena Medio since 1987. Magdalena Medio is an extensive valley in central Colombia formed in part by the Magdalena River.
Peace Brigades International-Colombia Project has provided protective accompaniment to Credhos since 1994.
Credhos will be part of a speaking tour in Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa this coming November – along with Ccalcp – Corporación Colectivo de Abogados Luis Carlos Pérez – that the Peace Brigades International – Colombia Project and Peace Brigades International-Canada are collaboratively organizing. Stay tuned for details on that!
