Peace Village SAN JOSÉ DE APARTADÓ / Columbia


In the Colombian conflict region in the northern province of Urabá the peace village San José de Apartadó with its 1350 inhabitants fights non-violently for survival.

Since its foundation on March 23rd 1997, more than 200 farmers, men, women and children have been murdered some of them very brutally. The inhabitants do not give up, on the contrary: they build up a future model for an autonomous and peaceful life, a seed of hope for Colombia in a region which is heavily fought for military, police, paramilitary and guerrilla groups.

In 2007 they were honored with the Peace Award of the City of Aachen / Germany. They need international protection. Please help!
