The U'wa Nation Continues Lawsuit Against Colombia at the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights

Earthrights International

WASHINGTON - On Friday, the U'wa Association, the international NGO EarthRights International (ERI) and the Colombian human rights organization Cajar, presented allegations in the form of a petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) in favor of the U'Wa Nation. The brief alleges the international responsibility of the Colombian State for the human rights violations committed against the U'wa Nation and calls for reparation and the cessation of aggressions against the U’wa.
