HRF Op-ed in Boston Globe on Colombia and human rights

Check out Senior Associate Andrew Hudson’s opinion piece that ran in Saturday’s Boston Globe. It discusses outstanding human rights concerns in Colombia, pointing out what issues President Obama should raise in the meeting taking place today with Colombian President Alvaro Uribe.

This morning, a Washington Post article covering the meeting quotes Andrew.

Today’s meeting is an opportunity for President Obama to break with the past administration’s approach to relations with Colombia – one that ignored human rights – and begin the process of restoring U.S. credibility in Latin America.
