The monument to memorialise the experiences of the community of Burcoro during atrocities committed in April 1991.

 

It’s almost ready! The construction of the monument for the Burcoro massacre of 1991 is underway and will be completed by the end of this month.

The memorial is the first of its kind for the community and is being built in the shape of the tree that where a man was chained and shot by an NRA firing squad after being falsely accused of being a rebel, according to witnesses.

In 2013, JRP documented the experiences of the community of Burcoro during the massacre in ‘The Beasts at Burcoro’. Read this field note here.
