Daira is a musician, storyteller and community organizer who was forced from her home by gunmen. This is an excellent opportunity to bring light to Colombia's internally displaced (the largest in the world) and connect the dots between military policy and the failed drug war in the U.S. and Latin America. You can see a video of Daira here: http://witnessforpeace.org/article.php?id=917
Daira appears as part of the Witness for Peace annual Spears Tour.
