Women of Courage delegate Vernie Yocogan writes article on the Colombia tour
Vernie Yocogan has posted a great article on the Women of Courage Colombia tour in the ‘Northern Dispatch (nordis) Weekly’, a blog of the nordis Weekly, a people’s newspaper for Northern Philippines:
“Women’s Front: Women of Courage visits Colombia”
Before leaving for Colombia Vernie visited us at the Toronto office of KAIROS and we had the chance to interview her.
Here Vernie, along with KAIROS staffers Jim Davis and Connie Sorio, discusses development aggression in the Philippines, indigenous rights, ‘free, prior, informed consent’, UNDRIP, resource extraction and militarization.
In this YOUTUBE video Vernie responds to the question, “Who are the Women of Courage?”
