Killed for speaking the truth

The story about Paúl Rivas Bravo was written by a friend and colleague named Ana Maria Carvejal. He was one of the 53 journalists that were killed in 2018. Bravo was a photojournalist and was on an assignment with the journalist Javier Ortega and driver Efraín Segarra. It was on this trip the three men were kidnapped and killed one month later.

It´s tragic to learn about the events that took place on the border between Ecuador and Colombia. It´s unclear how the government of these countries were involved in the events that led to the necessity of #NosFaltan3, but I believe there must be a correlation between the governments involvement, and the silencing if the journalist.
