Urgent Action: Escalation of Violence in Indigenous Territory, Northern Cauca


ABColombia expresses its profound concern over the escalation of violence in the Nasa indigenous territories in Northern Cauca, which led to the displacement of 253 families between 8 and 13 December 2017.

As Christmas approaches, ABColombia partners in Colombia are becoming increasingly concerned, since this is traditionally the time of the year when a spike in violence can occur. Urgent prevention measures by the Colombian Government are essential, alongside a longer-term approach of dismantling the neo-paramilitary structures responsible for the violence against communities and Human Rights Defenders.
