Seguimos caminando juntos
Fundraising by Alessia Galbiati
Since 2009, volunteers from Operation Dove have been accompanying the Comunidad de Paz de San José de Apartadó with nonviolent civil escort activities.
For twenty-five years, the Peace Community has denounced systematic human rights violations by the Colombian state and all actors involved in the armed conflict. For twenty-four years the Peace Community has been the victim of killings, threats, and massacres.
In 2015 I had the honor of accompanying them and sharing a piece of their journey. I met people, stories, faces, smiles, the most beautiful resistance I have ever known.
In Colombia there is a saying, "quien looks like mango, not like mango," but, as Brigida taught me, "shouldn't we sow mango plants just because we know we can never eat the fruit?"
To continue to support, even from a distance.
Vamos todos adelante con cariño y mucho amor.
