Commander of the XVII Brigade announces the extermination of the Peace Community

Enviado por cdpsanjose el Mié, 2014-07-23 21:52. :: Otros Idiomas

Once again our Peace Community records the new acts of horror against us and against the people of our geographical and social environment. Joint activities between the military and paramilitaries in the region continue openly. For all our requests that the High Government take action, it shows itself to be deaf, dumb and schizophrenic. The new documented facts are:

· On Monday, July 7, 2014 at 9:00 am a group of soldiers stationed themselves for several minutes at the entrance to the settlement of San Josecito of our peace community, which is our living and working space as well as being private property of the Community. When community members became aware of the presence of the military, they went to ask them to withdraw. One of the soldiers, on whose uniform was the nametag ROJAS, treated the community shamelessly and abusively, alleging that the peace community were armed actors like them, and he identified himself as a peace community member. He argued that he was there because he wanted to greet the international observers who were present there, and exchange contacts. Our Peace Community rejects these insults by the National Army against us, and we remind them that our private spaces, enshrined in the constitution and the law, are not spaces of meetings and exchange of information with any armed group including the armed forces.

Endless Crime and Impunity

Enviado por cdpsanjose el Mar, 2014-05-27 11:23. :: Otros Idiomas

 Despite our cries and documentation, the paramilitaries continue to develop their civil-military plan of war in the rural settlements of Rodoxali, Zabaleta and La Hoz of the township of San José. They are building roads and houses there, and all the materials are brought to the town of Nuevo Antioquia by paramilitaries and then civilians are forced to carry building materials to the settlements, all under the complacency of local authorities at regional, provincial and national levels. Given these and other facts, our Peace Community again records for humanity and for history, these new developments to the already long list of crimes under impunity committed against the Peace Community and the local population day by day. The new facts are: 

Merciless human brutality

While people speak of peace, tranquillity, development and progress in Urabá, the gunfire does not let up. Yet again our Peace Community finds itself with ethical and moral obligation to record before the country, the world, and history, the new facts of horror, in order to prevent oblivion being complicit in human brutality:

A new anniversary fills us with gratitude

As we complete our 17 years of existence, our Peace Community of San José de Apartadó wishes to send a sincere and deep gratitude and appreciation to all the communities, groups, organizations and people from distant countries and from many regions of Colombia, who have accompanied us with their solidarity, with their moral strength, resistance, and hope.

The barbarity seems set to continue

The state aggression against our Peace Community of San José de Apartadó continues even around election days, when the State ordinarily displays a mask of goodness. In our territory, the criminal face of the state nakedly continues. We hereby record, before the country and the world, the latest attacks:

The Andromedan routine of de San José de Apartadó

In recent days, Colombia and the whole world have been scandalised by the levels of corruption detected in the Colombian armed forces. Intelligence centres camouflaged behind restaurants, and who knows what other establishments, violate the Constitution, the law and International Treaties, walking all over the intimacy and the most sacred rights of citizens, and carry out perverse spying activities seeking to control, attack and destroy those who think or act in ways that are different to their criminal and excluding social projects. All this occurs daily in San José de Apartadó, where the armed forces has for over 17 years been seeking to destroy a Community which has ethical values which they want to destroy.

Urgent: Soldiers illegally holding member of the Peace Community prisoner

On Saturday, February 8, 2014, at around 11:40am, Wber Areiza was held prisoner for 30 minutes by troops from the military base in San José who belong to the army?s 17th Brigade, as part of an illegal checkpoint set up next to San José de Apartadó. They branded him as ?suspicious,? and although the soldiers released him when a group from our Peace Community arrived where he was being held, another group of soldiers illegally detained him again within minutes. He is currently being held prisoner by the military troops in the same way the paramilitaries normally do: they say that if one of Areiza?s family members or acquaintances comes forward they will release him, ignoring the presence of the large group of people from the community who all know him; Wber grew up in our Peace Community.

Uribe the Slanderer is reincarnated in other state agents

Enviado por cdpsanjose el Vie, 2014-02-07 23:39. :: Otros Idiomas

Many of our friends and communities who stand in solidarity with us have asked us if the “forgiveness” asked of our Peace Community by President Juan Manuel Santos last 10th December, for the slander made years before by his predecessor as head of state, sanctioned for their criminal character by the Constitutional court, have had o could have an effect of providing guarantees of non repetition. Sadly, President Santos did not fulfil the second part of the order given by the Court, that is, the presentation “of a procedure to avoid future slander against the Community, as well as the establishment of a single channel of communication which reduces the risks of slander and enables the reconstruction of trust”. This omission – and we do not pretend to judge whether it is intentional or not – has in practice invalidated the effects of the presidential request for “forgiveness”, because other state agents, especially a direct subordinate of the President, the Commander of the Seventeenth Brigade of the Army, has followed ex President Uribe’s criminal role, thus integrating himself into the systematic crime of PERSECUTION and SLANDER against our Community, already expressed in several thousands of crimes against humanity and war crimes currently in international tribunals.

Our land is used as a battlefield

Yet again our Peace Community of San José de Apartadó finds itself having to document before the country and the world new facts which violate our dignity and our fundamental rights, and continue revealing the profiles of a state which uses absolutely illegitimate and perverse means to express the injustice and violence which structure it.
