Colombia-Nariño-departamentos

The Caravana sent a letter of concern regarding the murder of Carlos Jimmy Prado Gallardo, human rights defender and social leader from the department of Nariño. Carlos had previously approached the Colombian Prosecutor’s Office in relation to death threats he had been receiving.
Nariño is one of the most affected areas in Colombia in terms of violence against human rights defenders. We urged the Colombian authorities to take action to stop this alarming pattern.

Read the letter in English and Spanish
