There Are No Dead Here - Book Tour with DPA's Executive Director Maria McFarland Sánchez-Moreno

About the Book

Just when Colombians were ready to move past the murderous legacy of the country’s cartels, a new, bloody chapter unfolded. There Are No Dead Here is the harrowing story of three ordinary Colombians who risked everything to reveal the collusion between right-wing paramilitary groups with close ties to the cocaine business and much of the country’s political establishment. Their groundbreaking investigations landed a third of the country’s Congress in prison and fed new demands for justice and peace that Colombia’s leaders could not ignore. There Are No Dead Here is an unforgettable portrait of the valiant men and women who dared to stand up to the tide of greed, rage, and bloodlust that threatened to engulf their country.
