We are delighted to welcome Jacqueline Castillo and Rubiela Giraldo from MAFAPO (Madres de los Falsos Positivos) a courageous network of mothers and other women fighting for justice for over 6,402 innocent civilians murdered by the Colombian state, in a campaign of atrocities known as “Falsos Positivos”.
As millions across the world demonstrate for a ceasefire in Gaza, it is even more urgent to hear how women in Colombia are confronting decades of horrific violence from a militarised state; to share information about the movement against war and state violence in the UK and elsewhere; and discuss how we can work together across national boundaries.
13th November, 12-1.30pm, Crossroads Women’s Centre, London NW5 3DX.
Please confirm if you’re coming: Tel: 0207 482 2496 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com. Follow Mafapo here on Twitter.
Jacqueline Castillo and Rubiela Giraldo are in Britain for a week and will be speaking at the following venues in London, Manchester and Edinburgh.
