|Shaped by violence: Armed conflict and animal rights in Colombia|
Colombia has suffered an open, multifaceted armed conflict for almost 60 years. But is the violence we experience as Colombians somehow related to the violence animals experience? Is one the cause of the other? Do they feed each other? How is activism affected by the conflict? Is being an activist safe? This talk will try to answer these questions, as they relate to my experience growing up surrounded by war and doing animal rights activism in Colombia as well as looking at the present and possible future developments in both human and non-human rights.
