Indigenous Peoples' Week: I
COLOMBIA VIVE
"Indigenous Resistance to the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement"

The Boston-area solidarity group Colombia Vive, created 20 years ago, works
to inform the public about the situation in Colombia; organizes opposition
to U.S. military aid to Colombia; sponsors visits of human rights defenders,
religious workers, trade unionists & grassroots activists to New England;
and supports humanitarian aid efforts in Colombia.

Members of the organization will educate us about the harmful effects of
military aid ("Plan Colombia"), as well as the many positive social
movements in country. Other Colombia Vive foci are the needs of Colombia's
vast numbers of displaced people, the environmental impact of the "drug war"
and immigration legislation to assist Colombians.
