Our Call for Peace and Economic Justice for Colombia
You know the truth about Colombia.
Politicians in Washington claim more military aid and a so-called U.S.-Colombia free trade agreement will improve security and foster economic growth.
But you know that $6 billion in U.S. military aid has failed to bring peace to Colombia. In fact, 30,000 civilians have been killed and another 3.3 million have been driven from their homes by the conflict since U.S. military aid began in 2000. And a NAFTA-styled free trade agreement may boost corporate profits, but it will also put workers and the environment at risk.
Now is your chance to tell Washington the truth. Join tens of thousands from across the United States in a National Day of Action for Peace in Colombia by contacting your representatives in Washington to call for peace and economic justice for Colombia.
