Defending the right to peaceful protest in Colombia

LIMPAL Colombia continues to advocate against the repressive state violence used on protestors in recent weeks, which have resulted in over one thousand documented cases of police violence, almost a thousand arbitrary arrests, and several dozen deaths. WILPF categorically rejects this violence, the use of weapons to repress peaceful demonstrations, the silencing of free expression and censorship of alternative media, sexual violence, the militarisation of the streets, and the complete lack of accountability.
