Today the doctors announced the death of Nicolás David Neira Alvares,
a 15 year old who was marching in the anarchist block the past 1^st of
May. Like never before in the past few years, many young people decided
to come together to protest against capitalism. The huge demonstration
which included union workers, farmers, students, unemployed people and
activists, marched in a non-violent manner on one of the main streets of
Bogotá. The demonstration not only remembered those who were killed by
the State in Chicago, but also denounced the current precarious
economical and social conditions of Colombia, demanded a halt to the
Free Trade Treatise and made public the atrocities that are being
committed by the current fascist government. Atrocities that also
occurred t his day when the ESMAD (police) started to throw tear gas
without any reason, and after one explosion, initiated a violent
repression hitting the protesters with wooden sticks and rubber bullets.
It was precisely during this repression that various people were
severely injured, including Nicolás who was beaten up on the head by the
police until he lost consciousness. Approximately 8 policemen surrounded
Nicolás and covered themselves with masks impeding the remaining
protesters to see their faces and to rescue him from their hands. After
sometime, Nicolás was finally taken by some comrades to a Hospital in
the Westside of Bogotá. There he waited for some hours until he was
taken to the Salud Coop Hospital were he remained in critical conditions
until today.

During this week, many people tried to denounce the situation,
writing articles in the alternative media, helping the family,
organizing a public sue and protesting in the streets. It is now known
that many of these persons are being harassed by the police. Right now
the media are covering the whole affair by trying to hide the real
facts. The ESMAD are saying that they never beat the protesters.

The sad death of Nicolás and the violent repression done by the
police is the consequence of this unjust system that seeks to silence
all those voices that are trying to create a world of freedom and
equality. All this information must be urgently known and divulgated. We
don’t want to stay silent.
