An Ethical Campaign for Peace in Colombia

An Ethical Campaign for Peace in Colombia

Fundraising for political campaigns can be a polemic, and sometimes, a dishonest issue. We believe that it can be different. We propose this fundraising campaign based in the support of the people that find us as an real alternative to traditional politics.

We do not want the contribution of any company, we do not want to owe any favors, we do not want our voice rests pawned to private interests. We do want to have the freedom to act within our principles and to be able to defend the working classes, the ones we must and want to represent.

The crowdfunding allow us to fundraise with transparency and budget control by our contributors. Each person that contributes to the campaign will receive a letter with all the expenses detailed and signed by the presidential candidate, Aída Avella, and the head list for Colombians abroad, Juan Carlos Villamizar.

Elections will take place on next March 9th - 2014, for Colombians abroad, and on May 25th 2014, for the ones inside the country. This campaign hopes to motivate to all the Colombians abroad to vote for a more democratic Colombia.

Who is Aida Avella?

She is the presidential candidate for the party Union Patriotica, she was exiled for more than 17 years in Switzerland. In 1996 she fled Colombia after she was attacked with rockets at her house, back then she was city councilwoman in Bogota. Nowadays she is 60 years old and at her return to Colombia, she has been selected by the members of the Union Patriotica to be the presidential candidate.

The Union Patriotica was founded in 1985 as a political alternative from the left-wing guerrilla groups, time after the party distance itself from the armed groups and tried to reach an end Latin America’s longest-running guerrilla war. Two of the presidential candidates were killed by paramilitary groups during the last two decades. In 2013 the Union Patriotica was reinstated as a legal political party.


Who is Juan Carlos Villamizar?

He has more than 10 years of experience in political campaigns. As well as the Colombian elections, he has been candidate in the last two local and regional elections in Barcelona and Catalonia. He is also Immigration Affairs responsible in the Catalan Green Party. Fundraising for these experiences has been managed in a traditional way, from the institutional field by the Green Party, as well as from direct contributions thanks to supporters and collaborators.


The money will be used for?

- To cover costs to rent out locations for the two big events of the campaign in Barcelona and New York.

-To create a video-spot of the campaign.

-For spreading our political program in the world media.

-To help supporters that live far away from the major cities to get there.
