March for Peace in the town of El Bagre, Antioquía
On the 27th of June citizens of the towns of Puerto Claver, El Bagre and Puerto López came to El Bagre to march for peace. Despite the threats received by the organisers of the march, and the wave of assassinations of community leaders over the previous months more than 200 people gathered in a demonstration of hope. PBI accompanied members of Aheramigua, (the association of miners and campesinos of Guamocó) who organised the march and who work with communities in the region through capacity-building and education to help them demand their constitutional rights in this conflicted region of Colombia where state-control is not consolidated.
