On November 28, 2000, the Nunca Más' or Never Again Colombia report was released. The report presents the results of a comprehensive study of human rights violations in Colombia from 1966 to 1998. Some 38,000 cases of human rights during this 32-year period were documented, with 99.6% of those crimes going unpunished.
The objective of the Nunca Más' report is to facilitate an end to impunity in Colombia. The documentation of crimes against humanity is one way to promote truth seeking and justice, and in turn can help to avoid the continuous reproduction of violence.
The database will serve many purposes, chief among them to provide accurate information regarding human rights violations to those in charge of overseeing an eventual peace process. Of equal importance is the report's contribution to creating a complete historical record of the extremely bloody civil conflict that has ravaged Colombia for the past four decades.
The 17 organizations responsible for the report are ASFADDES, Colectivo de Abogados "José Alvear Restrepo", Comisión Intercongregacional de Justicia y Paz, Comité de Solidaridad con los Presos Políticos, Comité Permanente por la Defensa de los Derechos Humanos, Comisión Interfranciscana de Justicia, Paz y Reverencia con la Creación, Corporación Sembrar, CREDHOS, Reiniciar, CODEHSEL, Corporación Jurídica Libertad, CEBS, Corporación Humanidad Vigente, Fundación Manuel Cepeda, ANUC-UR, ANDAS, and Misioneros Claretianos de Colombia.
