Jineth Bedoya Lima: “We are not going to rest until we have justice and truth for all the victims of the conflict in Colombia”
 
Yesterday, 7th October, on the day we remembered Anna Politkovskaya’s murder 10 years ago, Jineth Bedoya Lima (COLOMBIA) won 2016 RAW in WAR ANNA POLITKOVSKAYA AWARD, as President Juan Manuel Santos of COLOMBIA RECEIVED THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE
 

Today, 8th October, speaking on the phone from a street demonstration in Colombia to demand the peace deal be saved, Jineth Bedoya Lima said:

 

“The two awards that were announced yesterday in Colombia - Nobel Peace Prize for president Santos and Anna Politkovskaya Award to me sends a very clear message from the world to Colombia that we have to end this war of more than 52 years, but also that we commit to continue working for the people who have been victims during the conflict.

 

It is a very clear message to tell the victims and survivors of sexual violence that we are not going to rest until we have justice and truth for them and for all the victims of the conflict in Colombia. But also it is a light of hope for the women who have believed that through word and voice you can visualize and change the reality and this is what I have been trying to do all these years.

 

These are timely awards in the midst of the difficult situation that we are living in Colombia.”

Dear Anna:
 
Since the day of my abduction I have spent many a sleepless night crying in the darkness all alone.  Each time depression knocks on my door I think how lucky I am to be still alive; how fortunate I am that the 9-mm gun, pointed at my temple for many hours, was never fired...(Continue reading here)
 
 
 
Dear Anna,
It so happened that while working in the same region of the North Caucasus we often met at different events, bumped into each other in its airports, towns and villages. Our paths crossed and parted and each time we would say that we should get together and talk, properly, not in a rush. But we never got to do that. I still have your Moscow address and telephone number in one of my old notebooks, written by you, in your handwriting. 
Whenever I had a chance to have a proper chat and I never got to say this to you…(Continue reading here)
