We're so pleased to share part of a project undertaken by CICADA members in Portezuelo, Colombia. CICADA members have been working on autonomous land and territorial law in the area, and will be visiting embassies in Bogota for political advocacy towards implementing constitutional court decision T530/16. This specific planting project took place in the community of Portezuelo, however the initiative is spearheaded by members of the 32 different communities that make up the Resguardo de Origen colonial Cañamomo Lomaprieta. More planting projects will continue to take place throughout the 32 communities. This partnership has been very refreshing and different from some other experiences with government agencies. Governments do not always collaborate in this way and their support has opened up exciting possibilities. Thank you to Viviane Weitzner for providing the photos and background on this CICADA collaboration.

Estamos muy contentos de compartir parte de un proyecto realizado por los miembros de CICADA en Portezuelo, Colombia. Miembros de CICADA han estado trabajando sobre tierra autónomo y leyes territoriales en la area, y visitarán embajadas en Bogota para abocar por implementar decisión constitucional T530/16. Este proyecto específico de plantación se llevó a cabo en la comunidad de Portezuelo, sin embargo, la iniciativa está liderada por miembros de las 32 diferentes comunidades que conforman el Resguardo de Origen colonial Cañamomo Lomaprieta. Se seguirán realizando más proyectos de plantación en las 32 comunidades. Esta consorcio ha sido refrescante y diferente de otras experiencias con agencias gubernamentales. Gobiernos no siempre colaboran en esta manera y su apoyo ha inaugurado posibilidades emocionantes. Gracias a Viviane Weitzner por las fotos y la historia sobre esta colaboración de CICADA.

Nous sommes ravis de partager une partie d'un projet entrepris par des membres du CICADA à Portezuelo, en Colombie. Les membres du CICADA ont travaillé sur le droit foncier et territorial autonome dans la région et se rendront dans les ambassades à Bogota pour un plaidoyer politique en faveur de la mise en œuvre de la décision de la Cour constitutionnelle T530/16. Ce projet de plantation spécifique a eu lieu dans la communauté de Portezuelo, mais l'initiative est dirigée par des membres des 32 communautés différentes qui composent le Resguardo de Origen colonial Cañamomo Lomaprieta. D'autres projets de plantation continueront d'avoir lieu dans les 32 communautés. Ce partenariat a été très rafraîchissant et différent de certaines autres expériences avec des agences gouvernementales. Les gouvernements ne collaborent pas toujours de cette manière et leur soutien a ouvert des possibilités passionnantes. Merci à Viviane Weitzner d'avoir fourni les photos et le contexte de cette collaboration avec le CICADA.

In recent weeks, some CICADA members have become increasingly concerned with the effects of Canadian mining companies in South American, in particular the Putumayo region of Colombia. Moving forward, we'll be working with ASOMI (La Asociación de Mujeres Inígenas “Chagra de la Vida”) to begin thinking about how to organize as a community to face Libero Copper’s exploration (and potentially, extractive!) activities in the area, and their disastrous social and environmental effects. Stay tuned for more about our partnership, and click through these photos for an introduction to the topic. ... See MoreSee Less
