Mural in memory of Berta Cáceres & Marielle Franco
In 2019, together with the human rights collective CADEHO and the Colombian mal crew, we created a mural on the occasion of the criminalization, persecution and murder of environmental and human rights activists in Latin America.
Using the example of Berta Cáceres and Marielle Franco, two resistant women, the mural at Malmöer Str. 29. Berlin thematizes social struggles in Latin America and commemorates the work and murder of the two activists. Problems such as police violence, the overexploitation of nature, the human rights responsibility of German companies, but especially the resistance to them are made visible in the form of a collage.
With the mural we show solidarity with the struggles of Berta, Marielle and other activists who had to pay for their commitment to a better world with their lives; Since German actors also played a role in both cases, we also want to address the responsibility of German actors for human rights crimes.
You can find more information and photos of the mural, the background and the context in which it was created on the website.
