Miami clama justicia por las victimas de crimenes del Estado colombiano Español

In Colombia nearly 4 million persons have been internally displaced, mostly by illegal paramilitaries death squads. These groups, often collaborating with Colombia’s military, have “disappeared” more than 15,000 persons and buried them in mass graves or thrown their bodies into rivers. They have murdered more than 1,700 indigenous peoples, 2,500 union members and nearly 5,000 members of the Union Patriotica movement, besides forcing tens of thousands of Afro-Colombians and peasants from their lands. Routinely victims are tortured before being killed.

No more crimes by the State. No more State Terrorism.
No more Mass Graves. No more Forced Displacement.
No more Paramilitaries. No more Para-politicians.
No more US military aid to Colombia.

Between 1982 and 2005 paramilitaries carried out more than 3,500 massacres and stole more than 12 million acres of land. Since 2002, after their supposed “demobilization”, Colombians are still dying. Paramilitaries have murdered more than 600 persons per year, and gained control of 35% of Congressional posts. Members of the Colombian army, which receives millions of dollars from the US Government, have since 2002 committed more than 950 execution-style murderers, often camouflaging their victims as guerrillas. Many paramilitary groups have not disbanded, calling themselves “Black Eagles.”
