Confinement for fear of reprisals by armed groups was identified as the most common crime against Colombian Indigenous peoples this year.
From April 1 to Sept.30, at least 14,270 Colombian Indigenous people have been subjected to confinement, forced displacement, harassment, or forced recruitment, the National Indigenous Organization (ONIC) denounced.
"This sad and painful reality reveals the physical, cultural, and territorial extermination of our peoples," the ONIC lamented, stressing that the figure presented is the highest number of human rights violations ever recorded in Colombian Indigenous communities.
Confinement for fear of reprisals by armed groups was identified as the most common crime. Currently, 10,021 Indigenous people from the Choco, Antioquia, Valle del Cauca, and Nariño departments are stranded in their territories due to presence of the National Army, Police, the Gulf Clan, and the paramilitary organization "United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia."
Forced mass displacement was registered as the second most frequent crime. Illegal armed groups dispossessed 3,666 Indigenous people of their lands to gain territory for drug dealing, trafficking, and illegal mining activities.
Colombia's National Police reflects the soul and action of the armed forces and ruling class. Their admiration for Hitler and the Nazis expresses the values of the political model they want to impose on the world. Below is the evidence to understand Colombia today: pic.twitter.com/k2397LoOwK
