(en) Rupture Collective (RC): Fotogalería, Resistance and Liberation of Mother Earth in Corinto, Cauca (ca) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 22 Aug 2016 11:25:32 +0300

On 16 December 2014 the Nasa nation began making and direct release of 2000 hectares of land in the municipality of Corinto, located in the northern department of Cauca. These lands were monopolized by the sugar mill Incauca, owned by Ardila Lule who, in addition to controlling cane production for biofuels in two departments of the south-western Colombia, has a strong monopoly on the production of soda, sugar, banking and RCN channel media that is recognized by a constant defense of the action of paramilitary groups in Colombia. ---- The end of this process of land release is to overcome the food crisis of indigenous communities refolded in high and infertile land, replacing cane production for biofuels from crops of beans, corn and pumpkin, expand and strengthen safeguards, exercising their ancestral land rights, a right that has been taken away in more than 500 years of despoiling. Nasa indigenous communities for land is the material support of an independent and dignified life, in which harmonious relations between people and nature are practiced under their own forms of government.

Direct struggle for land that has been done in five indigenous reserves of Northern Cauca has not been without repression: paid by the landowner Alvaro Za, known in the region as "monkey" in complicity with the forces paramilitary groups armed institutional, receive mingas direct release of land with gusts as bullet against men, women and children, who have no other weapon than rocks and hoes, as was presented in the last minga release on August 8 2016. According to reports from the community, for two months these armed groups have begun patrolling the area late at night, sowing terror and anxiety in the community and thereby announcing the possibility of future violent actions against commoners.

Death threats against dirt and liberators are now a daily occurrence, with no community the permanent presence of human rights organizations. Furthermore, in the hard days to release the anti-riot police attacked the homes and sacred community centers, setting fire to structures built in bamboo and straw, firing gases against children, using unconventional weapons like slingshots, recalzadas with explosive material segmentation and excrement, stun bombs and conventional firearms.

The atmosphere of terror and intimidation is permanent, according to information provided by the fabric Communications Nasa people, only 14 to July 18 this year, were killed savagely four Nasa community members in the municipality of Caloto, while the Coordinator of the Indigenous Guard guard delight was baliado at home on July 16. Despite these facts the indigenous community does not back down in its fight for the direct release of land, it is urgent that communities are not left isolated, generated and networks of solidarity between the indigenous community and the organizations and individuals that support be strengthened direct struggle for land, the siege of terror that has wanted to isolate communities break, because only in this way it is possible to stop the repression against the communities living in the north of Cauca, to advance this process of struggle the earth.

The State has ignored the just demands of indigenous sectors of Cauca, constantly discriminated against and forced to live in the mountains empinosas away from arable land. The former haciendas that served as administrative centers, warehouses gathering and housing for laborers, are now the headquarters of the police, army and paramilitary groups, from which coordinates with the large landowners and under the approval of the local political class, the strongest repression of Nasa, their crops and their culture.

Indeed, the strategy of psychological warfare the Colombian State (which curiously has increased amid peace talks) to weaken solidarity and Nasa rear. Corn crops are destroyed by machinery of the sugar mills and tanks of ESMAD missing a few weeks for harvest, sacred places are burned and targeted assassinations are increasingly ghoulish, from pistols with silencers to pique bodies .

Despite the dead, repression and constant black propaganda of the mainstream media, the resistance continues and more and more strongly, as recorded in the previous agrarian national minga that paralyzed much of the country. However, we must walk the floor ever further, converting the Minga release in a process of anti-systemic resistance worldwide, who refuses to live under a system of accumulation by death and destruction.

We make a call to all those rebellious hearts to join this feeling that is from the upper basin of the Cauca River and mountains nasa nation to support this process, sending medicines, non-perishable food and items for camping in cases where possible, or failing that, to support spreading the humanitarian crisis that exists in these lands, showing the various and abundant audiovisual materials, and for those who live outside the Colombian territory, solidarity with social mobilization boycotting and denouncing the header narco-state by neo-liberal allied with the extreme right paramilitary national policies.

Let's liberate the land to recover all!
