Being a community leader in Colombia comes at a high price

 

Colombia’s grassroots leaders face a rising tide of attacks as they campaign for conflict-stricken communities’ rights.

Protecting these leaders, deterring their enemies and ensuring their communities’ safety should be put at the heart of security policy.
