November 25, 2013 saw the beginning of 16 days of Public Actions in Medellin. The International Day of No Violence against women started the actions specifically to make the public more aware and to gather support against violence towards women. Local human rights organizations along with student groups, women’s groups, anti – war groups and other local groups organized the campaign which they named, “For the right to exist, think and make decisions: 16 days of public action for women, dignity and peace.” This ran in conjunction with the iniative that was started by the United Nations and the campaign ran until 10 December which marks International Human Rights Day.
