Oxfam demands the Colombian government take urgent action to protect female human rights defenders

Colombian women land rights defenders are being threatened and murdered at alarming rates for standing up to those prioritizing economic interests over natural resources, Oxfam said today. Oxfam is demanding the Colombian government enact and enforce immediate protection measures for women’s land right defenders. These protection actions should take into account the complex social context and particular needs of these women defenders, who mostly live in rural settings.
