This summer PASC and members of the Red de Hermandad y Solidaridad con Colombia (Redher — Colombia Friendship and Solidarity Network) will be organizing a Popular Tribunal against Colombia's extractive industry policies. The Tribunal is a chance to put foreign mining, gas and hydroelectric companies on trial for the pillage of Colombia's natural resources, as well as for fueling political violence against union members, communities affected by mega-development projects, and environmental and social activists. A series of public hearings will take place before the Popular Tribunal, including one focused on Canadian company, Pacific Rubiales Energy, the most important oil producer in Colombia.
