Despanfletizate Festival in Aguablanca

04 Aug

This my first vlog! On August 2nd, Colectivo No Violencia (No to Violence) organized a festival against “panfletos” in the district of Aguablanca, one of the most marginalized areas of Cali. Check out my pictures of the festival on flickr (link on right side of this page). Several of the youth groups who participated in the festival would like to start working on Disarming Domestic Violence in their neighborhoods. I’m going to be meeting with them this afternoon.

I’m going to Bogota tomorrow to meet with organizations who might be interested in becoming part of a national campaign against armed domestic violence and lobbying to change laws. Stay tuned when I get back for videos and blogs about how professionnals are affected by armed domestic violence, Colombian laws and their limits, and the particular issue of domestic violence in displaced communities.
