Colombia: Investigate threats and attacks against defenders

On 13 February, a grenade was thrown inside the home of a member of CREDHOS, hurting members of her family. This attack came after serious threats against civil society organizations working to defend human rights, territory, land, and the environment in the Magdalena Medio region of Colombia, including CREDHOS and FEDEPESAN, during January and the beginning of February. We call on the Colombian authorities to address these threats and attacks, including by carrying out robust and effective investigations to determine who is responsible and to take the suspected perpetrators to justice, as well as to provide timely and comprehensive protection for these organisations.
