This Sunday, Camilo Gonzalezthe Government’s chief negotiator at the table with the FARC dissidents, known as the Central General Staff and who is still in these talks, rejected the attack perpetrated last Friday on the road that connects the municipalities of Miranda and Corinto, in the Cauca. The explosion claimed the life of a minor and, recently, Wilmer Zúñiga, mayor of Miranda, confirmed the death of Luis Ovidio Rodríguez Velásquez, 67, who was traveling in the area at the time of the detonation. The minor’s mother remains in intensive care.

The Miranda attack is another example of the level of barbarism that the Western bloc’s terror offensive has reached. of the so-called Central General Staff. The Caucasian community, not only in the north of the department, but also in other regions and throughout the country, is outraged, repudiating these actions that only contribute to more pain and the deterioration of all living conditions,” said González in reference to the front. Dagoberto Ramos, alleged responsible for that attack.

That is one of the three structures under the command of Iván Mordisco that is currently not at that dialogue table. The other fronts that operate in Cauca under the leadership of Occidental Jacobo Arenas are the strongest and with the greatest territorial control of that dissidence. In that area of ​​the country, as well as in Valle del Cauca and Nariño, on March 17, the Government lifted the ceasefire with these factions of the EMC after an attack against an indigenous community. Despite this, the Government remains at the table with fronts of Caquetá, Catatumbo and some of Putumayo and Arauca.

The governor of Cauca, Octavio Guzmán, sent a message to President Gustavo Petro and the Minister of Defense, Iván Velásquezasking them to “champion an urgent mission for Cauca, with concrete actions.”

Violence in the department of Cauca is on the rise. In the municipality of Miranda, in the last two months, there have already been three attacks. On May 10, a vehicle was detonated in the urban area of ​​the municipality, near an Army command, in the El Porvenir neighborhood.

All communities are demanding a reduction in violence, even the Indigenous Guard has spoken out demanding, like other authorities and social organizations, the cessation of all violence, attacks against people, and recruitment. Without conditions for effective de-escalation of violence, it is impossible to think about humanitarian dialogues or any type of conversation that is aimed at creating a better environment in the department of Cauca,” González added.

For his part, the Ombudsman, Carlos Camargo, you He asked the Ministry of the Interior to convene an Intersectoral Commission for the situation in Cauca. “I reiterate my call to the Minister of the Interior to convene an extraordinary session of the Intersectoral Commission for Rapid Response to Early Warnings due to the repeated acts of violence in the department of Cauca,” he stated.

A week ago, the Association of Indigenous Councils of Northern Cauca (ACIN) sent a letter to Andrés Patiño, commander of the Western bloc of that dissident, whose main area of ​​operation is Cauca, to stop the attacks. In the letter, the indigenous authorities of the north of that department speak of the impact of the violent actions perpetrated by the insurgent organization, which have claimed the lives of hundreds of community members.

“Only in the last four years in the north of Cauca, your organization has been responsible for 374 murders against Kiwe Thegnas, authorities and community members, leaving dozens more injured; He has put explosives on 42 peoplenot counting those that have affected homes and local roads,” the document states.

The letter also stated that the war being waged in that department long ago ceased to be against the State, but rather against all organizational, indigenous, communal and social processes.

“(The EMC) has focused its actions on supplanting the efforts of the popular movement to build alternative and autonomous governments in their territories. To replace these own governments, you have dedicated yourself to destroying or trying to destroy – you have not yet achieved it and we are sure that you will not achieve it – what we have been building in 50 years of indigenous struggle in the department of Cauca. And as far as we know, you have been doing the same thing in Nariño, on the Pacific Coast, in Putumayo,” the document says.

Since President Gustavo Petro ordered a regional lifting of the ceasefire on March 17 in three departments (Cauca, Nariño and Valle), violent acts by the EMC have increased in the region, and have included attacks against headquarters military, kidnappings such as the one that occurred against three agents of the Technical Investigation Corps (CTI) in Cauca and a accelerated increase in forced recruitment, especially of indigenous youth.
