Political Movement Brews in Queens Café

It’s 2:15 p.m. when Freddy Castiblanco sneaks in a side door at Terraza 7 Train Café in Jackson Heights and joins the meeting of the Movement for Peace in Colombia.

It’s an unusually large crowd — 13 people sit in a makeshift circle on distressed wooden barstools and a faded paisley couch. The turnout inspires Ramon Mejia, one of the movement’s founders in 1999, to catalog names as each person introduces him or herself.
