Beatriz (from France), Tessa (from Ireland).

On November 10, PBI-Colombia posted: “We warmly welcome our two new colleagues from France and Ireland.”

Beatriz says: “Until now, the work of accompanying threatened human rights defenders has been the fairest way I have found to use my privileges and put them at the service of the protection of spaces of resistance, struggle, and defense of the rights of all, for the construction of a world in which life prevails over the rest.”

And Tessa comments: “I have great admiration for human rights defenders in Colombia and look forward to accompanying them as they carry out their essential work.”

On October 24, PBI-USA and PBI-Canada recently collaborated on a PBI information webinar featuring brigadistas from Colombia, Honduras, and Guatemala.
