The consolidation of a more just society

We offer a warm welcome to our five new field brigadistas who will accompany human rights defenders and organizations from the Apartado, Barrancabermeja and Bogota Teams

The people saying hi in this photo are: Sunniva (Norway) who accompanies from the field team in Apartadó, whereas Inge (Austria), Mathilde (France) and Alexandra (Portugal) will accompany from Bogotá, and Inés (Spain) from Barrancabermeja.

«We are looking forward to beginning this new experience and accompanying human rights defenders. We consider it an exceptional opportunity to accompany different farmer, indigenous and Afro-descendant organizations in their struggles with land rights issues, their pursuits of justice for victims of the conflict, and their work with families of forcibly disappeared persons. Parting from our own experiences, we connect with each other through our motivation to contribute to the construction of a fairer world and our desire to learn about the organizations that have been working towards the consolidation of a more just society for so many decades».
