RIP Hernan Bedoya

Colombian community leader. Assassinated for reclaiming his land from #PalmOil, banana and ranching corporations

Video in memory of #HernanBedoya, Colombian community leader. Assassinated for reclaiming his land from #PalmOil, banana and ranching corporations. Hernán returned to his land with his family (and a group of families) in 2012 after being displaced by paramilitary groups in 1996. Since 2012 he had fought to claim back his land, denouncing palm oil, banana and rancher companies in Pedeguita and Mancilla for illegal landgrabbing and deforestation. Since 2015 Hernán had received numerous threats on his life, which were reported to the State authorities as documented by NGO Comision Intereclesial de Justicia y Paz.
