#Colombia: mucho patriarca en las nuevas elecciones https://loquesomos.org/colombia-mucho-patriarca-en-las-nuevas-elecciones/
This week for Insights I wrote about the new "junk food law" in #Colombia that carries with it an interesting ultra-processed food tax. The goal is to use the revenue generated by said tax to subsidize healthier options. The #VAT system means it would result in the prices on healthy options *at the shelf* being lower. Pretty cool.
It will target ultra-processed foods with an additional 10% surcharge, which will increase to 20% in ’25.

"Powerlands traces how #multinational energy #corporations extract resources and profits while displacing and harming #Indigenous communities around the world. The film follows #IndigenousActivists in #NavajoNation, #Colombia, #Mexico and the #Philippines who are fighting back against corporations like #PeabodyEnergy, #Glencore and #BHP."

As far as "medicine" goes, a walk -- alone or with a friend-- is a timeless means of clearing one's mind, stretching the legs, breathing deeply, and just getting out and away from stress. It's an opportunity to meaningfully talk, if we're with another, or deeply think. Healing, healthy, agreeable and free.

Environmental activists killed at a rate of one every other day in 2022 – report
"#Colombia was the deadliest country and a fifth of the 177 recorded killings took place in the Amazon rainforest, says Global Witness.
At least 177 people were killed last year for defending the environment, according to new figures, with a fifth of killings taking place in the Amazon #rainforest.
Murdered by organised crime groups and land invaders, environmental defenders were killed at a rate of one every other day in 2022, figures from the NGO Global Witness show. Colombia was the most deadly country, recording 60 murders.
#Indigenous communities were disproportionately represented in the figures, making up 34% of all murders, despite representing about 5% of the world’s population. The new figures mean that at least 1,910 environmental defenders have been killed between 2012 and 2022, according to Global Witness, with most of the murders going unpunished.
#Brazil, #Mexico, #Honduras and the #Philippines were the most deadly countries in 2022 after Colombia.
Almost 90% of all killings were recorded in Latin America."
