Report from UCU president Rob Goodfellow on a humanitarian visit to Colombia in 2016.

This was a humanitarian visit to listen to the first hand testimonies of local people and groups and to then feedback and to apply pressure to the British Ambassador to Colombia and the Colombian Attorney General's Office.

The delegation was made up of union activists from the UK and Ireland, two MPs, a senior solicitor and a senior journalist. They were accompanied by members of the Justice for Colombia team.
