Colombia: Another Social Leader Was Killed, Toll at 225

Published 9 October 2020 (3 hours 20 minutes ago)

Awa people have frequently condemned armed groups' attacks against their leaders, which has intensified during the pandemic.

Social organizations and human rights’ advocators of Colombia Friday denounced the assassination of the Indigenous leader Euliquio Pascal Rodríguez, in the state of Nariño, on October 7.

Pascal was a member of the High Guard of the Awa Indigenous reservation “La Brava” in Espriella, a rural settlement of the municipality of Tumaco.

According to the Colombian Institute for the Development and Peace (Indepaz), unidentified armed men shot him to death when he entered his house on the evening of October 7.

His neighbors and other community members went to help him, but he died instantly. His corpse was transported to the Caunapi trail for a funeral.
