Two local leaders murdered in Colombia

Colombia’s Congress of the Peoples (CdP) social and political movement denounced two assassinations in the municipality of San Pablo Sur de Bolivar.

Fernando Gaviria or 'Panadero', a leader of the CdP and of the National Agrarian Coordinator (CNA) was killed along with Omaira Alcaraz or 'Cachi', a local leader of Township of Cerro Azul, Alto San Juan village, who is also a FARC party member.

Two hooded men arrived at 21h30 with uzi-type weapons and entered Omaira’s home where she and her entire family were tied up.

The men then headed out to where Fernando was working as a shopkeeper in an establishment. Upon entering the store, one of the men ordered him to go to Omaira's house, but he refused to go and was immediately shot in the abdomen.

The gun then jammed, providing him an opening to run for his life, when they shot him in the head with another gun, for a total of seven shots, leaving him dead.

The men then returned to Omaira's house and murdered her.

Four social leaders murdered in Colombia over the weekend
JJ Rubiano by JJ Rubiano August 31, 2020

Two of them occurred this Sunday in the San Juan village of the municipality of San Pablo, located in the south of Bolívar and this was confirmed by the Institute of Studies for Development and Peace (Indepaz).

They are the president of the community action board Fernando de Jesús Gaviria and the leader Omaira Alcaraz, 'Cachi'.

The Rural Press Agency published on its official Twitter account: "The crimes against the peasantry and their leaders continue. Stop the slaughter!"

During the weekend the murder of four social leaders in Colombia was recorded.

According to the most recent report from the authorities of Algeria (Cauca), the municipality closes August with 42 homicides so far this year.

Initially, armed men who were mobilizing in a vehicle reached the Sinaí village in the municipality of Argelia, located south of Cauca, and assassinated the vice president of the association of parents of families of the Sinaí educational institution, Jhon Montero.

Later, the president of the community action board of the Barranco Colorado village, municipality of Puerto Rico (Meta), a member of the Peasant Association, was assassinated.

Thus, with these crimes the murders of social leaders in Colombia increase to 200.

For its part, the party of the Common Revolutionary Alternative Force, Farc, confirmed that on Saturday, in the municipality of Santa Rosa (Bolívar), former combatant Jorge Iván Ramos, known as 'Mario Morales', was assassinated.

The ex-guerrilla participated in the signing of the peace agreement and disarmed himself in compliance with the agreement. The Farc party confirmed that the events occurred in the Palmachica village, in the San Lucas mountain range.

This has happened repeatedly: the leftist rebels have officially disarmed, signed peace agreements, and the right wing steps up an assassination program, killing as many of them as possible. When the leftist rebels, after peace agreements, have sought office, to have their voices heard, repeatedly they have been slaughtered, sometimes in public shocking, atrocious displays, as in ripping them to shreds with chain saws, to leave messages for the peasant communities, paralyze them with fear. For some reason, the victims have tried, over so many years, to seek an end to this!
