Colombia mobilizes "For peace, for life, for social justice"

The mobilization took place in the 32 departments of Colombia, various social, ethnic, human rights organizations, unions, workers, companies together took to the streets to support the structural reforms that have been proposed and that are stalled in the Colombian Congress.

The indigenous communities assure that respect for their territories is essential, that they do not want to continue reporting deaths that armed actors register in their territories. In addition, social organizations assure that they took to the streets to support reforms such as those relating to pensions, labor and health, as well as education.

President Petro, when addressing the participants, asserted that “all the truth that is hidden must surface so that Colombian society understands what their country is, what happened in its recent history, what has happened in Colombia, the country of beauty".

“Truth and mobilization are the strategy to put those who have always dominated Colombia and have economic power into dialogue with the people. "Education and land as fundamental axes in this strategy that the government has been drawing up," Petro added to the people who were in the Plaza de Bolívar in Bogotá, but also heard it in the 32 departments of Colombia.

He also referred to the violence that for decades has frightened different social groups, as a transversal axis, which is why the dialogues are developed with different sectors and different armed groups.

“There is more and more talk about what happened in Colombia, about what happened to all of us, more and more we discover the horror of the years that have passed, more and more we know who the culprits are, why they killed , why they generated a genocide in Colombian society, more and more the actors of violence decide to speak their truth,” declared the president.
