Celebrating Colombia’s Independence Day

On the 29th July, PODIUM celebrated the 207th year of Colombia’s independence, as well as the political party MIRA’s 17th  birthday, in which the Miraism ideology was born.

In this event, which around 200 people attended, guests enjoyed the countries’ traditional foods and dances, performed by the dance group Yurupari. It was also a special day for children, who were able to enjoy a bouncy castle, face painting, and activities that the volunteers had prepared for these little ones.

The grown-ups also had the opportunity to enjoy themselves, playing bingo and taking part in the raffle, as well as getting to know more about MIRA’s political work in Colombia that they can benefit from, even from abroad.
