Documentary Screening and Discussion with Javier Orozco, Colombian Refugee and Trade Unionist in Derry, Belfast, Galway, Cork and Dublin.
Colombia has a reputation for the human rights abuses in the middle of the ongoing social and armed conflict. Little is known about the resistance movement and popular resistance to war-mongering and to the economic and political model structurally linked to war. At the heart of this popular struggle lies the key to understand the current conflict and the persistence of human rights violations in Colombia.
