Colombia tops the rankings of the five most dangerous countries in Latin America for human rights activists, according to data from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

Devoting oneself to defending human rights is a very dangerous task, especially if it is carried out in Latin America, a region that has become the most dangerous region in the world to denounce or demand the violation of some fundamental guarantees.

The complaint was filed by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), a case that recorded the deaths of 147 activists in 2021, according to information in the annual report published last week.

But if 2021 is not a good year for human rights defenders in the region, then 2022 does not look much better.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, in another preliminary report, stated that only in the first four months of this year did it count the death of 89 active.
