Star Sign: Libra
Zaida Catalán (6 October 1980 – March 2017) was a Swedish politician who was a member of the Green Party and leader of the Young Greens of Sweden between 2001 and 2005. She was known for her work in activism including environmental issues, animal rights and human rights (including support of Sweden's sex purchase law; see Prostitution in Sweden). Catalán was murdered while on a UN mission to the Democratic Republic of the Congo in March 2017. Investigation into the crime is ongoing as of March 2018, and critics allege the UN was irresponsible in sending her to a high-conflict zone with limited training and support.
