Mothers of Soacha. ICIP Award 2012
The International Catalan Institute for Peace (ICIP) presented the II ICIP Peace in Progress Award to five “Madres de Soacha” (Mothers of Soacha, a town near Bogotá in Colombia) at the Catalan Parliament last Monday 18th March 2013. The sons of these five mothers were assassinated extrajudicially by the Colombian Army between 2007 and 2008. The award recognizes the courage and exemplariness of the persistent struggle of these women, who “do not accept silence nor proposals of compensation and who do not back off despite the menaces and coercion”, and their contribution to the creation of citizenship and the defense of justice and juridical state.
