WIDF Congress, Bogata, Columbia
September 2016

Anita Wright, and Liz Payne NAW president and secretary respectively say “It was a real privilege to represent the NAW at the WIDF Congress in Colombia last month and to meet so many amazing sisters from all over the world. Along with all the other delegates we participated in a peace march through the streets of Bogota which ended with an amazing rally led by our Colombian sisters who called for a YES vote in their October referendum. Sadly the referendum to endorse the peace deal was narrowly lost but talks continue and we are confident that the women of Colombia will continue in their struggle for peace. A full report will appear in future SISTERS
