DJs and producers from the techno world have come together for this incredible compilation in aid of the Colombian people, who have been protesting peacefully against the corruption within their own government
99 artists from the techno world contribute to the ‘100 Years Of Columbia’ compilation, in aid of the Colombian people who are protesting against the corruption and brutality within their own government.
Read about the compilation and the struggles the Colombian people are currently experiencing.
Since April 2021 the people of Colombia have been protesting peacefully against corruption and unfairness from their government entities. These protests have been permeated and violated by terrible police brutality. There have been documented disappearances of hundreds of people, killings of civilians by police forces, sexual assaults made by members of the police, and thousands of injured victims, according to the non-governmental organization ONG Temblores, who have been documenting the situation.
The compilation ‘100 Years Of Colombia‘ brings the techno scene together to make attention and awareness of what’s happening in Colombia, with a hope for a better future. All the income from the compilation will be donated to charity organisations across Colombia.
Colpaz is a NGO that deals with current social development issues in Colombia, and also intermediates support towards other third party organisations in defence of civil human rights against excessive police abuse. They are intermediating our contact with the below regarding the donation funds –
1) Desaparicion Forzada: An independent and open network of affinities dedicated to driving awareness on the reality of forced disappearance of people across Colombia.
2) Movice: Movimento Nacional de Víctimas de Crímenes de Estado is a collective of 200 organisations working together to vindicate the victims of crimes committed by the State.
