So far this year, 124 social leaders and human rights defenders have been killed in Colombia.
The Institute for Development and Peace Studies (INDEPAZ) denounced that five social leaders were murdered on Monday, which increased the number of leaders assassinated since the signing of the Peace Agreement to 1,235.
Maria Ramirez, who was murdered in Antioquia, worked as a teacher at the Porfirio Barba Jacob Educational Institution in Santa Rosa de Osos. Two hired assassins killed her while she was on her way to the school where she taught.
Jose Pai and Jovanny Garcia, who were members of the Awa Quejuambi Feliciana and Hojal La Turbia Indigenous communities, disappeared on Sept. 19 and were found dead with several signs of violence.
Dilio Bailarin, a member of the Alto Guayabalito Community in the Choco department, was also killed. The Indigenous leader had recently received threats coming from armed groups located in the municipality of Carmen del Darien.
