Oxfam is providing life-saving support but help is urgently needed to prevent the crisis turning into a catastrophe.
The number of murders, attacks, and acts of repression against human rights activists in Latin America has reached historic levels, according to a report published today by Oxfam.
Oxfam is deeply concerned about the worsening levels of violence, murder and repression against the men and women defending human rights in Latin America. This situation is linked to an economic model that fosters extreme inequality and has a negative impact on people’s basic rights.
Act now with Oxfam and the Rights in Crisis campaign and help us to ensure that people affected by or at risk because of conflict, insecurity and disaster can live in safety and dignity.
