Death threats and the student movement
Medium: Google Hangouts (to participate)
Violence and the threat of violence has been a part of Colombian history thorough the XXth century. During the latter half, right wing paramilitaries devised a sophisticated apparatus in order to identify, intimidate, follow, and assassinate student leaders.
Today, we are in the middle of a peace process with the guerrillas while still working through the juridical investigations that resulted with the agreement and demobilization of the paramilitaries (AUC), who were responsible of killing more than 4.000 communists during the 80s.
On this intervention we will talk to students who have been given 40 days to leave the Universidad Patriótica de Pereira or else.
For our dead,
not even one minute of silence
an entire life of struggle
