Cultivating a Sustainable Peace: The Other Side of the Colombian Peace Accords and the War on Drugs
Witness for Peace Midwest and the Witness for Peace Solidarity Collective host a short documentary and discussion with Leider Valencia, Colombian National Coordinator of La Coordinadora Nacional de Cultivadores de Cocoa. Leider will share his perspective as a campesino organizer and discuss the forces threatening the Colombian Peace Accords process for small growers in rural areas, as well as their efforts to develop diversified crops and how movements in the U.S. may contribute to solidarity in action.
The event will also feature a silent auction, tacos and refreshments.
