COLOMBIA: Human Rights Defender in Danger - ONLINE ACTION

Amnesty International Australia, August 21, 2019.

Picture this: unknown men have been following you everywhere you go for months. You report it to the police, but they ignore you.
Just imagining it is enough to raise the hairs on the back of your neck. For rights defender Danelly Estupiñan it’s very real. She’s being followed wherever she goes, and she’s heard that people have paid to have her murdered.

So far the authorities have ignored Danelly’s fears, but if we speak up together, we can get them to act and ensure she’s safe.
