When CREDHOS sought refuge at the PBI house in Barrancabermeja on Christmas Day

Published by Brent Patterson on

As Christmas approaches for many people, we revisit this story told by Ivan Madero of the Regional Corporation for the Defence of Human Rights (CREDHOS).

In this 2-minute video Ivan explains the intensity of the security situation in the city of Barrancabermeja, Santander in 1995.

So much so that he explains CREDHOS members “sought refuge, each of us with our respective families, in the PBI house and spent Christmas there.”

Ivan says: “It was a very special moment, there was a high risk, but in PBI we found fraternity, affection, a good reception, and this was very important.”

PBI-Canada wishes Ivan and CREDHOS members a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
