Animal Advocacy in Bogotá, Colombia

“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated” (these words were made famous by Mahatma Ghandi)

“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated” (Mahatma Gandhi)

"Animals are My Friends and That's Why I Don't Eat Them"

I just got back from a criminal procedure conference held in Bogotá, Colombia. It was hosted by the Sergio Arboleda University and proved to be a huge success.  Before the conference, a couple of students of the Arboleda university showed us around town. One of the obvious stops was Bogotá’s historical district, especially the “plaza”, which is surrounded by an impressive cathedral and the buildings that host Colombia’s legislature and Supreme and Constitutional Courts.

It turns out that we arrived at the plaza a couple of hours after a big pro animal welfare demonstration had taken place. The demonstrators wrote  messages on the “plaza” floor. I’m including a couple of pictures. If you want to learn more about the demonstration, you can read about it here (in Spanish).
