Update from the Field with Global Associate Lissette Mateus Roa - Colombia

April 9th is a significant date in Colombian history as it marks the anniversary of the death of a beloved political leader - Jorge Eliécer Gaitán. This year to coordinate with that anniversary and the ongoing peace talks between the government and the rebel group FARC, a national peace rally was held with as many as one million people attending events throughout the country. Our associate in Bogotá, Lissette Mateus Roa attended this march for peace along with her husband. This short film documents the day using their own video footage and photography and gives us an idea of what it was like to be there.
