José Vicente Murillo Tobo is the leader of Movimiento Político de Masas Social y Popular del Centro Oriente de Colombia (Political Movement of Social and Popular Masses of the Centre East of Colombia), national spokesperson for the Cumbre Agraria, Campesina, Étnica y Popular (Agrarian, Peasant, Ethnic and Popular Summit), and member of the Congreso de los Pueblos (Congress of Peoples). Movimiento Político de Masas Social y Popular del Centro Oriente de Colombia is a campesino organisation which struggles for land rights and for the rights of marginalised persons, such as indigenous and afro-descendent people, in the central-eastern region of Colombia. Cumbre Agraria, Campesina, Étnica y Popular has its origins in the agricultural strikes which took place in Colombia in 2013, due to the low prices of agrarian commodities in the international market. The Summit gathers different indigenous, afro-descendent, campesino and popular movements in order to propose a new model to strengthen their rights and work. Congreso de los Pueblos is a social movement which brings together different sectors and social actors. Since its launch in 2010, it has had a prominent role in social mobilisations in Colombia, such as the agricultural strikes of 2013, 2014 and 2016.
