Miguel Ángel González Huepa, Free!
Organización campesina del Magdalena Medio que construye la Zona de Reserva Campesina del Valle del Río Cimitarra. Premio Nacional de Paz en 2010.
La Asociación Campesina del Valle del río Cimitarra (ACVC), the Farmers Association of the Cimitarra River Valley, announces to the national and international community that its leader and cofounder, Miguel Ángel González Huepa, has been freed after seventeen months of unjust and illegal detention.
On June 9th the absolution was issued. After eleven months of legal processing, it was proven that Miguel Ángel never intended to subvert legal constitutional order. Rather he has struggled and will continue to work to make the Campesino Reserve Zone, a space for environmental protection and rural community development, a reality for the more than fifteen thousand inhabitants of the Cimitarra River Valley.
