Witness for Peace

Witness for Peace report on the devastating impact crop eradication has had on Colombia, after a decade of fumigation. The authors outline how fumigation has contributed to the increase in coca plantation, has destroyed farmers' food crops, negatively affected human health and lead to deforestation of the rainforest. Overall it has been a failed operation and calls for a new strategy are insisted upon.
