For Peace: Uniting forces against violence in an environment plagued by assassinations

Especially problematic is the assassination of women;  they have been the object of specific attention and initiatives of pacification during these years;  also the fight against torture, hospitality for the relatives of those assassinated, the remembering and retelling of recent history to ensure that it is not repeated, etc.
