The celebration of the collective title

In March,  FORPP had the opportunity to accompany Inter-Church Commission of Justice and Peace as well as Communidades Construyendo Paz en Los Territorios (CONPAZ) to a ceremony to celebrate the decision to award 177,817 hectares of land to 64 Afro-Colombian communities of the river Naya, Buenaventura. For many years, these communities of the Río Naya have been engaged in a legal battle for the titling for their ancestral lands, which are located between Buenaventura and López de Micay in the Pacific Basin. In 2001 over 100 people were killed by paramilitaries which provoked a massive displacement of these communities. The collective title guarantees that the land is communal property which cannot be sold, seized, or transferred without the communities’ previous consent.
