Colombia begs for help as Duque embarks on indescribable terror campaign


by Adriaan Alsema May 4, 2021

Colombia’s security forces subjected cities to indescribable terror as they attacked anti-government protesters and human rights defenders.

The latest terror campaign followed the announcement of Defense Minister Diego Molano that protests in opposition of far-right President Ivan Duque posed a “terrorist threat” to Colombia.

Molano claimed that “criminal organizations are behind the protesters’ acts of violence” and that “these are premeditated and organized actions that are financed by illegal armed groups and the ELN” guerrilla group.

The defense minister presented no evidence to support his claim that justified the use of military force against anyone opposing the increasingly authoritarian Duque, who came to power in 2018 with the help of the mafia.

2. Terror is right out of The Fascist Handbook For Dummies. And the kindest thing we can

do to fascists is to lock them ALL up.
