Spanish translation of the report ‘Civil society under threat’. Violence and threats are an everyday occurrence in Cesar, the Colombian mining region where European energy companies purchase blood coal for our power supply.

This research by PAX shows that in Cesar at least 200 people have become victims of attempted killings and death threats in the past four years. The urgency of this issue is acute. Néstor Iván Martínez, a leader of one of the communities protesting mine expansion, was murdered in the week of this publication.
