Ricardo EsquiviaDuring the 2013 International Conference on War Tax Resistance and Peace Tax Campaigns we were privileged to hear Ricardo Esquivia, a renowned Colombian human rights lawyer, peace advocate and religious leader speak on manifestations of conscience. A long term friend of those within war tax resistance, peace tax and many other peace campaigns he now requires your help.

Ricardo has recently received death threats from the paramilitary group Los Urabenos and is also facing detention by the Colombian authorities on charges fabricated by that illegal group. We need your help in supporting Ricardo and his work with conflict-affected communities of the Caribbean Coast in Colombia to peacefully reconcile and build a better future.
