This project is based on Jorge Eliécer Gaitán, a politician and leader of a populist movement in Colombia known as Liberalism. His assassination began El Bogotazo, one of the most violent periods in Colombia’s history. The infographic states the communist version of the events, as it graphically resembles Soviet Union propaganda and highlights Gaitán’s political principles: liberty and equality.
