Afro-Colombian activists need your help

The U.S.-supported reactionary state of Colombia has been hunting down Afro-Colombian and Indigenous activists who have been struggling for their human rights on ancestral territories. After the Transatlantic Slave Trade began forcibly transporting Africans to Colombia in the 1520s, some Africans were able to break away and settle in rural environments, where they have lived for centuries as self-sustaining people.

Sara Quiñonez and Tulia Marys Valencia—daughter and mother, respectively—were arrested on April 20 on phony charges of narcotics trafficking and terrorism.

The Colombian government has already received so many messages of support for these sisters, the state apparently has disabled the email account.

The best way you can support Sara and Tulia is by posting messages on social media. Tap this link for language you can use.
