Call on President Obama to Change U.S. Policy towards Colombia!

This petition had 57 supporters

Since 2000, the United States has provided Colombia with $6.7 billion dollars in assistance, approximately three quarters of which is military aid. Meanwhile, Colombia's brutal war continues--thousands of people are killed each year and 1,500 more are violently driven from their homes each day.

But today is a new day for U.S. policy towards Colombia-a chance to leave behind failed policies and start fresh. Send an email to President Obama today asking him to break from the tired militaristic policies of the past and forge a new relationship with Colombia, one that opens avenues towards peace, builds economic opportunities for the poor, and stands by victims of violence.
