From Witness for Peace: Ricardo Esquivia, a renowned Colombian human rights lawyer, peace advocate, religious leader will be arrested by the military on false charges of being a guerrilla if we don't stop it.
In 2005, Ricardo moved from Colombia's capital to work more closely with communities and churches hard hit by the war on the Caribbean coast. That year he founded Sembrandopaz with the goal of accompanying community processes of justice and peacebuilding in Montes de María and the Caribbean region of Colombia. Since 2012, Sembrandopaz has been supporting a community movement of the High Mountain Zone in Montes de María. This movement carried out a peace march from April 5 to 8 of 2013 to demand a dialogue with local, state and national governments, which began in San Jacinto on April 7th and continues today.
