Our allies in Colombia and Canada
Allies in Colombia :
PASC has been a memer of Redher since 2006. The Network of Brotherhood and Solidarity with Colombia - RedHer - is a space for organizing among independent Colombian and transnational organizations and collectives who share common principles of international political solidarity. The RedHer facilitates mutual aid and enrichment of resistance experiences for groups from Europe, North America, and Colombia. RedHer is committed to a negotiated political solution to the social, armed conflict and operates on two thematic axes: Fighting against impunity and repression and defending natural resources, with the goal of complete justice and the respect of sovereignty and culture.
Throughout the Network, PASC supports several groups such as : Comité de integración social del Catatumbo - CISCA, Federación Agrominera del Sur de Bolívar - Fedeagromisbol, Coordinador Nacional Agrario - CNA, Equipo Jurídico Pueblos – EJP, Corporación Social Para La Asesoría Capacitación Comunitaria COSPACC, Corporación Sembrar.
In addition, PASC collaborates with the Organización Feminina Popular - OFP, Comité de Solidaridad con los Presos Políticos - CSPP, Unión Sindical Obrera - USO.
The Peoples' Congress is a national convergence of social and political movements, born of the indigenous mobilizations of 2008 (the Minga). It brings together proposals from different sectors (student, trade union, feminist, campesino, Afro-descendant, community, etc.), with the aim of deciding on a dignified life plan, in an exercise of autonomy. It's a people's Congress that legislates but doesn't expect approval from official bodies and institutions. As a space for convergence, the Peoples' Congress is a central player in the regional blockades, campesino strikes and popular mobilizations that have led to the general social strikes of recent years. These uprisings forced the government to open negotiations in which the Peoples' Congress demanded, among other things, a complete moratorium on all mineral-energy activities and the immediate redistribution of land to indigenous, Afro-descendant and campesino communities.
Please note that the PASC is no longer doing accompaniment with Justicia y Paz. We worked with this organization from 2003 to 2015.
The Comision Intereclesial de Justicia y Paz is an organization dedicated to the defense of Human Rights. Based in International Human Rights law, the organization advocates for the rights of peoples to defend victims of Human Rights violations and of state terrorism in their search for truth, justice and reparation. Justicia y Paz accompanies 14 civil resistance movements countrywide whose actors come from afro-colombian, indigenous and farming communities, as well as some grassroots social organizations.
