New Testimonio - Colombia: Protests, Post-Conflict, and a Pandemic

The pandemic experience of COVID-19 in Latin America reaches us mostly in the form of aggregate numbers and summary overviews, often in random intervals and almost always from a distance. Our collection of testimonios is designed to offer access to voices from Latin America as a chronicle of the experience of daily life within the pandemic–testimonios, in a word–from Carolina students, past and present, as well as from friends and colleagues in Latin America with personal and professional ties to the Carolina community.

UNC Alum Luis Daniel González writes about the connections between Colombia's 2019 protests and how it's been affected by COVID-19. Read his testimonio here
