Prayers for Peacemakers, 27 December 2017  Colombia

 

Pray for the families of El Guayabo, Colombia driven off their land by the municipal authorities of Puerto Wilches in a process riddled with legal irregularities.  A wealthy landowner, Rodrigo Lopez Henao, has harassed the families for years and the authorities have colluded with him, despite the rights of the families to remain on the land under Colombian law.

Campesinxs from El Guayabo were evicted from their lands in a procedure full of irregularities and state violence. No humanitarian 

aid was provided and their fundamental rights have been continuously violated. The community gathered to worship and reflect

around the parable of the unjust judge and the widow (Luke 18:1-8).
