Colombian Action solidarity Alliance

Building solidarity With Colombian Social Movements

Quienes Somos

La Alianza de Solidaridad y Acción por Colombia (CASA, sigla en Inglés), fundada en 2003, es un grupo conformado por activistas comunitarios y sindicalistas con sede en Toronto, Canadá. Nuestro trabajo de solidaridad viene de la relación directa con comunidades y organizaciones sociales de base colombianas, que luchan por la paz, los derechos humanos y la justicia social. Consideramos que los “proyectos de vida” de estas comunidades y organizaciones constituyen una forma de resistencia al modelo económico y militarista dominante, implementado por el Estado Colombiano y los intereses de las grandes corporaciones multinacionales.   Por consiguiente, es prioridad de nuestro trabajo darle mayor visibilidad en Canadá a las luchas del movimiento social colombiano y fortalecer los lazos de solidaridad entre los movimientos sociales en ambos países.

About Us

The Colombia Action Solidarity Alliance (CASA), founded in 2003, is a group of community and union activists based in Toronto, Canada. Our solidarity work is based on a direct relationship with Colombian grassroots, communities and social organizations that struggle for peace, human rights and social justice. We regard the “Life Projects” of these communities/organizations as a form of resistance to the dominant militaristic economic model implemented by the Colombian state and multinational corporations. An important priority of our work is to give greater visibility in Canada to Colombian social movement struggles and strengthen solidarity ties between social movements in both countries.
