 2nd UN Global Road Safety Week (May, 6-12, 2013)

Luchemos por la Vida’s activities in Argentina - Complementary report

Luchemos por la Vida carried out different activities during the 2nd UN Global Road Safety Week, aimed at promoting pedestrians' safety. One of the most important was to invite the community to be part of a mobilization for this cause by creating a national network for pedestrians’ life. This initiative enabled us to get some partners in different cities of the Interior of Argentina such as "Vecinos Autoconvocados por la Autopista 8" -whose local members went into action in: San Antonio de Areco, Capilla del Señor, Pilar, Arrecifes, Parada Robles (Province of Buenos Aires)-; teachers and schools from Rada Tilly (Chubut), Necochea (Province of Buenos Aires), Concordia and Federación (Entre Ríos), “Concientizar para Prevenir” in Carlos Paz (Córdoba), among others.

               Argentina: 150,000 deaths in 20 years

This day, established by the United Nations, is aimed at remembering the millions of traffic victims all over the world. In Argentina, in the last 20 years, at least 150,000 people died because of this cause and millions have been injured, a lot of them suffering permanent handicaps. However, victim’s loved ones, who suffered the sudden lost of a close person, with its enormous burden of suffering and changes in their lives, also deserve to be remembered. In our country, no war or natural disaster has caused a tragedy of these proportions.
