Félix Díaz

HRD, Leader
Comunidad Qom Potae Napocna Navogoh

What is happening all over the world is very worrying, the inheritance we are leaving for our future, a contaminated world, without hope, water, land or natural resources. for this reason we give our life, because we want life to reproduce and we want to have the freedom we are due.

Félix Díaz is the leader of the Comunidad Qom Potae Napocna Navogoh in La Primavera, in Northern-East Argentina.

For at least a decade, Argentina is established as a state and society that largely respects human rights. However, the crimes of the past and the enduring attempts to assign responsibilities still cloud the situation. While most human rights defenders can operate in freedom, HRDs seeking justice for violations committed during the dictatorship, journalists and trade unionists have received death threats and been subjected to harassment, arbitrary arrest, prosecutions, police violence and smear campaigns. In recent times, defenders have faced new risks, including police brutality, judicial harassment and oppression in indigenous communities.
