"Please look carefully at this photo. He is Yamid Alonso Silva Torres, an environmentalist and park ranger at El Cocuy National Natural Park (Boyaca). He was killed yesterday morning. They continue to kill social and environmental leaders in Colombia."
From January 1 to date, 44 Colombian social leaders have been killed without the culprits of their deaths being detected or captured. In the same period, 7 former guerilla fighters were also killed.
On Tuesday, the National Indigenous Organization of Colombia (ONIC) denounced that the "Black Eagles" paramilitary group issued a new threat against human rights activist Aida Quilcue and Indigenous and Social Alternative Movement (MAIS) Senator Feliciano Valencia.
“They again threaten Aida Quilcue and Feliciano Valencia. We require President Ivan Duque to provide them with comprehensive protection guarantees,” ONIC tweeted.
