  THE PEACE PROCESS IN COLOMBIA:  
(Special Event)

Marcia Mejia Chirimia speaks on how communities are organizations are working for a better future.

Colombia has experienced 50 years or more of unspeakable violence by right-winged paramilitary groups, left-wing guerilla groups, and Colombia's army, revolving around drug wars, the Cold War, and home-grown conflicts. Over 200,000 people have been killed, four-fifths of them civilian noncombatants. A recent peace agreement between the government and the FARC guerillas was narrowly rejected by an October 2 national referendum. Marcia Mejia, a leader of the SIA people, will share how some indigenous Colombian communities have responded to these conditions.

Sponsored by:
American Indian Studies, Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention, Department of Foreign Languages and Literaures,College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences; DACII committee, Hispanic Latino Cultural Center, and Coalition for Justice.
