Solidarity support to women and the colombian people

May 15, 2021

Colombia is currently going through a violent military repression perpetrated by the State against the recent protests and the announcement of the anti-popular economic measures that President Duque intends to promote, which is exacerbated by the context of the global economic and health crisis caused by COVID-19. As a result, there are dozens of dead, hundreds injured, detained and missing. Women more than others are suffering state violence and sexual violence.

In this situation, IAWM (International Association of Women’s Museums), a strong network with over 60 member-museums worldwide whose collective goals are focused on education, empowerment, and self-confidence of women, stands in support of the Women’s Museum in Colombia, calling for an end to violence against women by the Colombian government.

The IAWM expresses outrage at this situation, denounces and repudiates the extreme level of militarized violence that does not respect the Colombian people, especially women.

In solidarity with the struggles of women who resist the violence of the patriarchal State, in solidarity and support for women’s rights, wherever they are in the world, we urge the Colombian government to stop violence and oppression against the people and especially Colombian women.

APOYO SOLIDARIO A MUJERES Y PUEBLO COLOMBIANO

Colombia atraviesa actualmente una violenta represión militar perpetrada por el Estado contra la protestas recientes y el anuncio de las medidas económicas antipopulares que el presidente Duque pretende promover, lo que se ve agravado por el contexto de la crisis económica y sanitaria mundial provocada por el COVID-19. Como resultado, hay decenas de muertos, cientos de heridos, detenidos y desaparecidos. Las mujeres más que otras están sufriendo violencia estatal y violencia sexual.

En esta situación, IAWM (Asociación Internacional de Museos de Mujeres), una red sólida con más de 60 museos miembros en todo el mundo cuyos objetivos colectivos se centran en la educación, el empoderamiento y la autoconfianza de las mujeres, apoya al Museo de la Mujer en Colombia, pidiendo el fin de la violencia contra las mujeres por parte del gobierno colombiano.

La IAWM expresa indignación por esta situación, denuncia y repudia el nivel extremo de violencia militarizada que no respeta al pueblo colombiano, especialmente a las mujeres. En solidaridad con las luchas de las mujeres que resisten la violencia del Estado patriarcal, en solidaridad y apoyo a los derechos de las mujeres, en cualquier lugar del mundo, instamos al gobierno colombiano a detener la violencia y la opresión contra el pueblo y especialmente contra las mujeres colombianas.
