Falsos positivos - a Colombian human rights scandal

This is the testimonial journey through the story of Luz Marina, who demands justice for her son and other innocent "falsos positivos" victims.

The phenomenon of "falsos positivos" refers to the killing of young men by Colombian military forces to present them as guerrilla soldiers killed in combat, in order to receive promotions and other benefits.

Despite evidence and broad international media coverage of these horrific crimes, the implicated soldiers remain unprosecuted.

Listen to the story of this fearless mother struggling to achieve justice in a context of violence, indifference and impunity, but not giving up.
