Protect Human Rights Activists From Being Killed by Organized Crime

Target: Néstor Humberto Martínez, Attorney General of Colombia

Goal: Protect human rights activists from violence and assault.

In 2017 alone, more than 100 human rights activists in Colombia have been brutally murdered in cold blood. These murders follow over 120 murders in 2016, the same year a peace agreement between the Colombian government and the Revolutionary Armed forces of Colombia (Farc) was signed.

However, though the civil war may have ended, blood is still being shed. Organized crime has taken over neighborhoods and towns where the Farc once ruled. Any activist who has dared speak out against the crime and corruption has been killed.

The United Nations is asking the government of Colombia to step in and protect activists. Sign the petition and join the UN in its plea. Demand that the government of Colombia do more to protect the men and women fighting against abuse and violence.


Dear Attorney General Martínez,

More than 100 human rights activists have been brutally murdered in your country this year. Organized crime rings run free, while anyone who dares to speak up is killed. Your nation is facing a human rights crisis.

Men and women should be able to speak out for the rights of others without fear. As your citizens, they deserve protection. I demand that you protect activists from violence and murder and disband the organized crime groups spreading fear throughout your country.
