Statement about the ceasefire in Colombia

No comments

Pax Christi International joins almost 30 civil society organisations in urging that the government of Colombia ensure that measures taken to address the Covid-19 pandemic do not endanger or violate the rights of the country’s most impoverished people. The International Civil Society Organizations that subscribe to the communiqué identify in the unilateral ceasefire ordered by the ELN starting on April 1, 2020, and in the reactivation of the figure of the peace managers (gestores de paz) by the government of Ivan Duque, a possibility to return to the path of dialogue with this guerrilla group; a path which must be prioritized over any other.
