Legal defence for Colombian protesters

Colombia has exploded after the brutal police murder of lawyerJavier Ordóñez . Hundreds of thousands of people, especially young people and students, have taken to streets all over the country to protest the killing.

This has resulted in at least 8 more deaths as well as countless of injuries and arrests. 

As Colombians living abroad we see a need to support protesters and we have found that the best way to do so is by organising tangible material support for those affected. Specifically, there is a significant and worrying number of young people being detained by the police on trumped up charges. The majority are young working-class students who have no means to defend themselves legally against the powerful state authorities. 

Solidarity protests and vigils are great but we must also extend our solidarity in a tangible way which is why we are collecting funds. 

A note on transparency: 

The Red Condor Collective is a new organisation that focuses on supporting activists in Colombia. It was founded by ANTICONQUISTA  who have a proven record of sending solidarity funds to Latin American activist organisations.  You can see some of solidarity funding work here  and here . 

All money collected will be channelled directly to the bank accounts of *legal* groups working around the clock representing those jailed and charged. 

We will also provide regular updates that will include receipts, pictures, videos as evidence that all your money is going where we are saying it is going.
