February 21st is the 2nd anniversary of the massacre of 8 people in the Peace Community of San José de Apartadó. Witnesses say that members of the Colombian military committed the massacre. Paramilitary presence in the peace community continues despite the supposed demobilization in that region. These paramilitaries continue to collaborate with the military and have renewed threats against human rights defenders in San José de Apartadó.
Amnesty International remembers the victims and honors the survivors by joining with other national and international human rights organizations to send a wake up call to the new U.S. Congress.
Amnesty International has partnered with award-winning political cartoonist Mark Fiore to develop the animated cartoon “Colombia Clean.” Don’t buy the phony demobilization.
