Monica Gutierrez just finished two short videos for MAKE IT VISIBLE, an Amnesty International Canada campaign for the survival of Indigenous peoples in Colombia.
“Canadian resource and mining companies have secured government permits to operate in Colombia, amidst complaints by Indigenous peoples that their right to decision-making about projects that will impact their land is routinely denied. Indeed expressing opposition to projects brings threats and attacks. Through the Canada-Colombia Free Trade Agreement, the Canadian government is promoting further expansion of these operations without human rights guarantees.”
This campaign is about making the plight of Indigenous People in Colombia more visible in an international arena. Please share widely and take action through the steps outlined in the videos. Click on the images to see each video.
One video showcases a campaign to make visible the plight of Indigenous Groups in Colombia by holding the exhibition of Juan Pablo Gutierrez‘s inspirational photographs.
The other invites us to take steps to make the situation of Indigenous Groups in Colombia visible through your creative actions. Let’s make clear to Canadian and Colombian governments what we demand!
