Forced displacement (Continued)

According to the United Nations at least 27 indigenous groups are under threat of extinction in Colombia mostly as a result of the armed conflict and the forced displacement. Their survival largely depends on their ability to remain in their ancestral territories.

Regrettably many have been forced to flee and continue to do so.

The latest incident from the same region: 24/02/2010 UNHCR

One month after the displacement of the communities of the Purricha indigenous reserve in the Bajo Baudò 1744 persons continue to be displaced.
