CPT members encountered a group of paramilitary members at the junction of
the Colorado and OpĆ³n rivers, who left about five minutes after CPT's
arrival. Later in the afternoon, the team returned to the area and found
that a CPT banner had been torn into pieces. The banner, created by the
delegation of North Americans in February, read "Do Justly, Love Mercy, Walk
Humbly with your God, Micah 6:8."
In March another banner was spray painted with "AUC BCB" graffiti,
signifying the presence of the Central Bolivar bloc of the United
Self-Defence Forces of Colombia, the paramilitary army.
