Human Rights Defenders In Colombia And The First Anniversary Of The Colombian Peace Agreement

EDM number 718 in 2017-19, proposed by Ann Clwyd on 20/12/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Human rights, International politics and government and Latin America.

That this House notes with concern the increased risks faced by human rights defenders and community leaders in Colombia since the signing of the peace agreement with the FARC, and in particular the recent killings of land restitution leaders, Mario Castaño Bravo and Hernán Bedoya; is deeply disturbed that according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 78 defenders have been killed in the first 11 months of this year; further notes the vital importance of the work of human rights defenders in Colombia, and elsewhere; and calls on the Government to strengthen its efforts, bilaterally and through the EU, to protect human rights defenders and civil society leaders in Colombia, and to support and monitor the implementation of the peace agreement between the Colombian Government and the FARC.

This motion has been signed by a total of 22 MPs.
