(en) ULET-AIT: LET THE DUKE RESIGN! - Colombian region (ca) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 14 May 2021 10:03:04 +0300


From the ULET-AIT, we inform the international organizations of the AIT / IWA, how of other unions, social and anarchist organizations, human rights organizations, feminist collectives, related organizations and individuals; an update on the events in development in the Colombian region and its different cities: ---- That so far around 37 deaths have been reported in different parts of the territory, the majority in the city of Cali, a city that was militarized, placed under the military command of General Zapateiro and cut off the internet service. In addition, more than 90 disappeared people are registered, highlighting that 1 of them already appeared dead in the Cauca River.
831 illegal arrests, 222 violent physical assaults by the security forces, 22 victims of eye injuries caused by low-lethality weapons, 10 victims of sexual violence including 1 rape, all counted until noon yesterday, May 5, registered by the NGO Tremors, which observes the actions of the security forces.
We also denounce the response strategy to the popular mobilization, which has been strictly based on the actions of the security forces, both the police and the army, who have exercised violence against groups of trade unionists, teachers, students and even human rights observers. We hold the government headed by Iván Duque, his ministers, generals and the entire body of state officials who govern in the different territories responsible, for joining this strategy, which we must clarify is managed and defined by former president and former senator Álvaro Uribe Velez, who is being investigated for the purchase of witnesses, confirmation of ultra-right paramilitary groups and drug trafficking, a man who suggested the thesis of "Dissipated Molecular Revolution" or in other words,
From ULET-AIT we report that although the reason that mobilized the people was the tax reform - supposedly reversed - the Duque government continues to insist on a reform that covers the deficit (6450 million USD), that its The same government caused, due to the elimination of taxes to the great fortunes, economic groups and multinationals, as well as the attempt to purchase 14 airplanes from the US for a value of 4000 million USD; However, this is not all, as it consists of a reform package, which includes health reform (increase in privileges to private companies, Yankee health model), labor reform (change to a model of hourly work, surely social responsibility in charge of the workers, reduced pension and without the right to family inheritance,
With regard to international pressure, popular mobilization and the evidenced cases of violations of IHL, Duque and the military and police leadership have been forging a plan to victimize the security forces, particularly the police; infiltrating peaceful marches since April 28, to cause destruction, violence, disorder, controlling the main media, putting the cameras in a favorable situation for the State, to indicate to the international community that your government is fighting an armed and terrorist insurrection , and not as it really is: an indefinite general strike mobilized by a wide and diverse variety of sectors, which has summoned the people who are outraged, tired and desperate.
At this time, Iván Duque considers three alternatives to overcome the crisis, to which is added a fourth that is gaining voices in the mobilization, which are:
Declare a state of internal commotion that is endorsed by article 213 of the CNC, granting him for 90 days and up to a maximum of 270 days, special powers to the president, as his decrees have the force of law and the entire chain of command of the Police It is under their orders (the army is already at their orders), being able to suspend the laws if you are against the commotion. This path is very much in line with what his fascist Democratic Center party has planned, since it could pass laws without consulting congress, even trying to pass the reforms or dismantle the little and nothing of the peace process, while the security forces quell the outbreak. social by force of arms.
* Dialogue with the partisan opposition: reach basic agreements on the fiscal deficit, with certain political sectors within the state. Something that is already happening, but which, unfortunately and against the interests of the people, gives representat
