On 6 November 2018, ABColombia, alongside Peace Brigades International and 70 other international civil society organisations from Europe and the United States, sent a joint letter to to the Inter-American Commission and Court of Human Rights, to raise concerns regarding the lack of progress in the prevention and protection of the members of the Peace Community of San José de Apartadó in the department of Antioquia, Colombia. You can download the full letter in English and Spanish.

We respectfully ask the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights to activate the Special Rapporteurship for Freedom of Expression of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, and to urge the Colombian State to carry out its national and international obligations as regards protecting human rights and preventing violations, abiding by the orders of the Constitutional Court regarding the Peace Community, and seeing to it that the provisional measures issued by the same Inter-American Court of Human Rights are respected.
