News from the national agrarian strike, where CPT has had a presence:
Our partners at ACVC report that five campesinos were wounded late last night in Segovia, where the community was preparing for today’s public actions. One man was wounded in the ankle by gunfire, and the others with tear gas. Some thousands of campesinos are present at the Humanitarian Zone, where the entry of any armed group is prohibited.
We continue to accompany the communities and to pray for a comprehensive peace in Colombia. Stay tuned for more information in the coming days.
