The Peace Village San José Must Live

Despite the Death Threat farmers in Colombia Plant a Seed of Hope

In the Colombian conflict region in the northern province of Urabá the peace village San José de Apartado with 1350 inhabitants fights non-violently for its survival. Since its foundation on March, 23, 1997 164 farmers, men, women and children have been murdered some of them very brutally. The inhabitants do not give up, to the contrary: they build up a future model for an autonomous and peaceful life, a seed of hope for Columbia in a region which is  heavily fought for military, police, paramilitary and guerrilla groups. They need international protection. Please help!
