We, the members of the Human Rights Workers Forum of Barrancabermeja
and the Middle Magdalena (Espacio), who have suffered with the armed
social conflict, are deeply concerned by the winds of intolerance, the
promotion of hatred and the spurring of polarization in civil society,
that throughout history has left the victims naked and unprotected in
the face of the armed actors of the Colombian conflict.
... Given this, in response to the call to participate in the march on
February 4, the social and human rights organizations signed below have
decided not to participate in the march, in order to draw attention to
the false dilemma presented to the Colombian people by the Government.
