Wave of arrests in ongoing persecution of the Congreso de los Pueblos’ national leaders in Colombia

16 December 2020

We, the Congreso de los Pueblos — a Colombian social movement seeking to build popular power and dignity in life — are suffering a new wave of arbitrary detentions of our leaders. In less than twelve hours, three comrades and social leaders have been unjustly arrested across different regions of Colombia.
