A conversation with Marino Córdoba of AFRODES, the Association of Displaced Afro-Colombians, an organization representing dozens of Afro-Colombian communities, mostly from the Atlantic and Pacific coastal regions, seeking to defend their land and rights from all actors in Colombia’s armed conflict. Marino talks with Adam Isacson, senior associate for regional security policy at the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), about the organization’s struggles, its efforts to get the Colombian government to hear their demands for justice, and the urgent need to protect AFRODES leaders from threats to their security.
