A crash course in changing the world.
I decided to inform myself about the theme of sexual violence in colombia. The video i've shared is about the mid-magdalena region in the middle of colombia. The region is also known as the 'region of death'. In colombia a civil war takes place. There some conflict parties for example the colombian police, paramilitary groups and guerilla groups. In this chaos women are often be treated as trophies of war. They are raped and displaced.
The colombian government has recognized the problem but they must implement an action plan to help the women. Till then is it up to the NGO's to give the women hope. In this video this role is taken by the judge Esperanza Gonzalez. A women who try to give the women some justice.
Here is another video about a project in putumayo (.southern colombia).
