PBI-Colombia accompanies ACVC-RAN campesinas at political training school on feminism and the environment
On October 4, the Peace Brigades International-Colombia Project posted: “Over the weekend we accompanied the Asociación Campesina del Valle del Río Cimitarra (ACVC-RAN) in Yondo in the Magdalena Medio.”
It adds: “The organization conducted the second module of political training school. The themes were peasant feminism and the environment.”
PBI-Colombia has accompanied ACVC-RAN, a social organization operating in 120 villages in the Magdalena Medio region, since 2007.
It has also previously explained: “For more than twenty years the ACVC has been striving for a dignified life for peasant families affected by Colombia’s internal conflict. It promotes the implementation of the Peace Agreement as a strategy to achieve structural changes in the Colombian countryside. One of its prime initiatives is helping small farmers substitute coca leaf plantations with environmentally sustainable agricultural projects.”
