Colombian Activist Again Imperiled by Baseless Charges

Help avoid seven years of unjust detention for Colombian activist Gabriel Gonzalez who continues to endure unjust and baseless prosecution for purported association with FARC guerilla forces.

Gonzalez was the recipient of Human Rights First’s annual human rights award in October 2009, and at that time met with numerous policymakers in Washington who supported him.

A recent Los Angeles Times editorial highlighted Gonzalez's case.

TAKE ACTION NOW to urge members of the U.S. government to stand up for him once again and make sure that real justice – affirming his innocence and letting his work on behalf of political prisoners in Colombia – be done.
