Canada’s role in Colombia’s humanitarian tragedy

Event Details

Canada’s position vis-à-vis Colombia has remained virtually indistinguishable from that of Trump’s in the US. Through the “Lima Group”, the Canadian government has taken sides explicitly with the hard right Colombian government, as well as others throughout Latin America, at the expense of human rights, social justice, democracy and peace. As the human rights tragedy unfolds, Canada has unequivocally stood by the Colombian government and paved the way for the extractive and financial interests to expand their footprint in Colombia.
