Impunity's Legacy in Colombia

November 22, 2013|

Thousands of victims of violence suffer from a legacy of impunity in Colombia. Union leaders and workers, human rights advocates, politicians, Afro-Colombianos – all have faced violence and await justice.

Stephen Franklin and Craig Duff produced this presentation.
