Days of Action for Colombia
For the past half-century, Colombia has lived an armed conflict in which much of its civilian population has been caught in the middle. Now, in Havana, Cuba, the Colombian government and the country's largest guerrilla group, the FARC, are in talks to end the conflict. This is a historic opportunity for peace, but a legitimate, lasting peace for all Colombians can only happen if there is justice, truth, and reparations for the conflict's victims, as well as meaningful involvement from victims and broader Colombian civil society in the peace process. The U.S. government can play a positive role in Colombia by supporting this foundation for a just peace, but U.S. citizens must demand that our government's actions do just that. Tell President Obama that NOW is the time for peace with justice!
