WOMAN, MOTHER, POLITICAL PRISONER
A Colombian Reality
An Evening of Solidarity
The International Network for Solidarity with the Political Prisoners
of Colombia and the Alliance for Global Justice invite you to a presentation of
“Beyond the Walls: A visit with the
women of El Buen Pastor, Patio Six.”
Accompanied by live Latin American music
‘Beyond the Walls’ is a play based on testimonies, poetry, and
collective statements of the political prisoners of the Buen Pastor
Women´s Penitentiary in Bogota, Colombia collected between 2008 and
2011, and from the letters of ex-political prisoner Liliany Obando.
Currently there are 9,500 political prisoners in Colombia. Colombian
jails also hold more than 4,000 mothers. The stories presented are of
women and mothers deprived of their liberty due to their political work
in Colombia. This is a story of revolutionary motherhood, family
resiliency, and of an ongoing struggle – we are responding to the call
for international solidarity!
