In Colombia, another social leader has been murdered. José Alonso was from the region of Valle del Cauca and a signatory of the 2016 peace accord between the Colombian state and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC. The 56-year-old was a community organizer for at least three decades and served as president of the Moralia’s Communal Council until his assassination. His killing came as massive anti-government protests against right-wing President Iván Duque continued across Colombia.
