Congress Resolution on Colombia

July 27, 2007

The Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF), meeting at the Quadrennial Congress in Santa Cruz, Bolivia on 21-27 July 2007,

WILPF calls upon the Colombian government to investigate all human rights abuses by the paramilitaries and the Colombian armed forces, including the police, and to sanction those responsible.

WILPF also calls on the government to apply the laws of the land to protect those whose lives and properties are threatened, and to end impunity for crimes committed and to return lands taken forcibly from peasants, Afro-Colombians and indigenous peoples to them; and in all respects to honor the goal of truth, justice and reparations in the application of the paramilitary demobilization law.
