In May, a national emergency regarding gender violence was declared in Colombia. The Coalition of Caribbean Women for Land and Territory wrote an open letter addressed to the women who are no longer here because they have been murdered; to those of us who are still here living day by day the situation of violence and resisting it; to our communities where many times we are not safe and to the Colombian State.
