Help Colombian Activist Fight Unjust Charges

Fighting to free political prisoners was Principe Gabriel Gonzalez’ life’s work – until he became one.

The Colombian government brought trumped-up charges against him to intimidate him and to send a message to other human rights leaders like him. Human Rights First worked to free Gabriel from prison so he could continue his vital human rights advocacy in Colombia.

But now Gabriel again faces 7 more years in prison. Read about his case in a recent LA Times editorial.

Human Rights First awarded Gabriel our annual Human Rights Award last October – and we brought him to Washington to testify before Congress and to meet with government officials we are now urging to act on his behalf.

You can help show public support is behind him – here’s how.
