Whether you are Colombian, whether you are an institution supporting Colombia’s development, a Colombian policymaker or just a citizen of the world committed with the defense of human rights, there are a number of things you can do to make the difference.

Urge Colombia’s Prosecutor General to end impunity

Monitor and investigate the role of private individuals and companies in the crimes and violations to seek accountability of culprits.

#NoPeaceWithoutDefenders in #Colombia should oblige #companies to evaluate the impact of their projects on #humanrights and pursue all culprits.
