Panama: UN agencies and civil society join forces to combat gun homicide

In Panama, civil society, government and UN agencies are working together to mark the Week. A recent survey by the Citizen Security Observatory showed that in 2009, guns were used in 80% of the homicides committed in Panama. This year, young people from three districts, San Miguelito, Arraijan and Chorrera, will participate in a march with the theme “Without guns, we build peace” on 24 June.
