As several countries in Latin America face a new wave of conservative politics and repression, this event will bring together activists from Brazil, Colombia and Haiti to discuss the current context in these countries, human rights violations against resistance movements and how to build international solidarity.
The event will represent a tribute to Marielle Franco, city councilwoman in Rio de Janeiro and human rights defender, assassinated on March 14.
