CIPÓ comments on the trajectory of the vice-president of Colombia, Francia Marquez, in Fantástico

On August 7, the television program Fantástico exhibited a report on the political trajectory of Francia Marquez, the newly vice president of Colombia. Marília Closs, the Project Coordinator for Plataforma CIPÓ, commented on political violence in the country.

Colombia is the Latin American country with the highest statistics of political violence against social, political and environmental leaders. In the country’s history, statistics show that the assassination of popular candidates for positions in institutional politics is common.

The report also highlighted the role of Francia Marquez’s anti-racist and anti-extractive struggle, especially in defense of the Ovejas River, in Colombia’s department of Cauca, against the construction of dams and against mining activities in communities and territories.

The article also covered the inauguration of Gustavo Petro, the newly Colombian president, and can be accessed on the GloboPlay Platform.
