FoE: Support the Colombian U'wa struggle to assert their land rights

Dear Friend,

On 17th January, trucks carrying drilling equipment entered the U'wa
indigenous people's territory in Colombia.

The government decided in December 2006 to re-initiate plans for oil
exploration in U'wa areas, despite a long history of opposition by the
U'wa people.

This area has been recognized as U'wa territory since 1802, and the
right of its people to occupy and use the land is protected under the
Colombian constitution.

To find out more and send a message to the Colombian President  visit

Please forward this message to your contacts and encourage them to get
involved.

Thanks for your support
