Register now! Webinar with Danilo Rueda, July 2, 1 pm ET
Hear Danilo Rueda of the Inter-Church Commission for Justice and Peace (CIJP) on a webinar this coming Thursday July 2 at 1 pm ET.
This event is co-hosted by the Colombian Caravana, ABColombia, Peace Brigades International-United Kingdom in the collaboration of Institute for the Rule of Law of the International Association of Lawyers (UIA-IROL) and Lawyers for Lawyers.
The Peace Brigades International-Colombia Project has accompanied the Inter-Church Commission for Justice and Peace since 1994.
When recently asked about the future for Colombia, Rueda replied: “The country is changing, if it manages to protect rights to life and freedom of expression, we will build another democracy in Colombia. People are demonstrating against fracking or in favour of protecting the animal welfare movement, regrettably with many human costs for their members and social leaders.”
Rueda has also commented: “Palm oil means death because of the violence it brings with it and because of the environmental damage it causes. Because big business, hand in hand with Colombian and international policy, is destroying water sources and flora and fauna by depleting the forests. This is capitalist logic, which favours the accumulation of capital, and in the long term, the effects are highly negative.”
The promotion for this webinar notes: “The Caravana is particularly concerned about recent allegations of unlawful surveillance activities by the Colombian National Army on 130 individuals between February and December 2019, and Danilo is one of them.”
It adds: “This will be a unique opportunity to discuss access to justice, risks to lawyers and implementation of the Peace Accord, particularly at times of COVID-19.”
