MADRE and partner enable UN Permanent Forum delegation to assess situation in Colombia
Posted on: Friday, July 30, 2010
Support from MADRE and our partner, the International Indigenous Women's Forum (IIWF/FIMI), enabled a delegation of the UN Permanent Forum to travel to Colombia in order to assess the situation for Indigenous women there.
Contrary to the claims of the Colombian government, Colombia's decades-long conflict and government policies continue to generate grave violations of women's human rights. Earlier this month, MADRE presented a shadow report before the UN Human Rights Committee that details these violations.
The shadow report presented by MADRE contains analysis and evidence gathered by our sister organizations LIMPAL and Taller de Vida, as well as contributions by the Colombian organizations CODHES, Humanas and Women's Link Worldwide.
