The Peoples' Congress

The People's Congress, or Congreso de los Pueblos, is being held on the National University's Bogotá campus. To the congress came members of Colombia's indigenous peoples and Afro-Colombians, who share the same status as the indigenous.

Indigenous and black Colombians are among those who have suffered the most from the nation's half-century long armed conflict.

The Congress of the People contributed lots of graffiti to La Nacho.
