Visuals for freedom of expression in Peru
“All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.“ The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 1
“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression.” The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 19
Peru—and Latin America— is going through a shift. People are taking to the streets to ask for change. The citizens of marginalized communities are asking to be seen, heard and considered by the government.
In December, the acting president was impeached for attempting to stage a coup and dissolve congress. At first, protests started in the South, asking for his restitution. Quickly, the protests turned into a cry for help from these communities asking for the end of racism, discrimination, classism and “terruqueo,” a derogatory term used by right winged activists suggesting that all marginalized communities are terrorists or that all brown people are terrorists. Pacific protests have turned violent, and lives have been lost.
Supporting the right to protest
At Freepik, we support every human’s right to protest. Everyone should have the right to protest pacifically without fearing for their lives.
As this is an ongoing situation with no clear end in sight, our team of international designers has created an asset collection for Peruvian communities and their allies to ask for change. You can use these assets to share information about what’s happening, engage your audience, and support Peru’s people’s right to freedom of expression.
Use design to raise your voice without limits
This design assets collection is our compromise to help everyone worldwide raise their voice without limits. We support the right to freedom of opinion and expression, and all decrees in the DHR (Declaration of Human Rights.)
Download and customize the graphics in this collection and support the voices asking for an end to inequality, injustice and repression. This asset collection is yours to express ideas without limits.
