Breaking the silence: Colombians march for the lives of social activists

According to the report “Todos los nombres, todos los rostros”, between January 2016 and May 2019, 837 Colombian social leaders were killed. Their crime: working for the good of the people. Unfortunately, the Colombian government’s efforts to stop this bloodshed seem not to have been effective. Because of this, last Friday a global day for peace for this South American country took place.
