An Early Day Motion (EDM) has been tabled in the UK parliament which supports the Caravana‘s call to support the peace agreement and to protect lawyers, judges and human rights defenders in Colombia, given the concerning rise of violence against them. The EDM also calls for progress in the investigation into the murder of the human rights lawyer Rommel Duran Castellano’s brother, something that Rommel raised directly with the MPs he met with during his March visit to the UK with the Caravana.
