The Prophet Amos and Trade

By Adelaida Jiménez and Milton Mejía, Presbyterian professors of Bible and theology at the Universidad Reformada in Barranquilla, Colombia, June 2011. English translation by Sarah Henken.

For three transgressions of Israel,
and for four, I will not revoke the punishment;
because they sell the righteous for silver,
and the needy for a pair of sandals
Amos 2:6

Buenaventura, Colombia: Where Free Trade Meets Mass Graves

by Kelly Nicholls and Gimena Sánchez-Garzoli
from NACLA Report

In April, President Obama and Juan Manuel Santos, the president of Colombia, reinitiated discussions on establishing a free trade agreement. The United States–Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement (CTPA), as it is officially called, was signed in November 2006 but has been on hold in the U.S. Congress because of grave concerns about Colombia’s labor and human rights record, the worst in the Western Hemisphere. If the agreement is implemented by the end of the year, as officials in both countries are hoping, the city of Buenaventura will be one of the most directly affected places in Colombia.

To name injustice, then to ask
What God is calling us to do.
