Event Description:


The Historical Memory Project is honored to invite you to our upcoming event, Rebel Memory#2.

"Legacies of State Terrorism in Latin America" will analyze the inheritance of the recent past of countries where state terrorism, dictatorships, war and genocide are intimately linked to today’s corruption and the criminalization of human rights defenders. The HMP considers this discussion urgent and necessary to understand and take action against ongoing legacies that hinder efforts to eradicate the root causes of violence in the region.
