Displacement, Las Pavas

URGENT PRAYER + Razing of a Plantain Field: A Photo Essay


We pray for the community of Las Pavas. Today the palm company Aportes San Isidrio began to plant palm on the campesino’s land, despite it being illegal. Community members laid in front of the company’s tractors to prevent them from entering. More details are coming. We ask you to lift up prayers for protection and strength.
