The structure is responsible for recent attacks against public forces and civilians in Valle del Cauca and Cauca, including harassment in Robles and attacks in Popayán, Morales, Suárez, Cajibío, and La Salvajina.

Due to military operations and pressure from troops in the region, the members decided to surrender. The minors were referred to the Colombian Institute of Family Welfare for the protection of their rights.

The Rodrigo Cadete Bloc of the FARC Dissidents has the inhabitants of Doncello, in Caquetá, on the ropes, where it was learned that several booklets and circulars have been distributed indicating rules of conduct and a regime imposed by the insurgents .

Reprisals for not complying with the demands of the armed structure are feared by the general population. The text includes express prohibitions, restrictions on hours and commercial activities, mandatory financial contributions and communal cards to have control over those who live there.

The complaint was exposed by Caracol Radio, from where some images of the printed matter were shared.

Under the concept of “guidelines for the good living of communities”, orders are issued in relation to the following topics:

  • Prohibition of the sale of liquor and cigarettes to minors under 16 years of age: Businesses must post visible notices to ensure compliance with this regulation.
  • Community days: Each hamlet will hold one community beautification day a month, including repairing bridges, ditches and holes in the roads.
  • Regulation of sex workers: A medical control card is required and exhibitionism and movement outside their workplace are prohibited.
  • Communal cards: Issuance of cards with an expiration of six months to control the identity of residents and restrict family visits to be brief.
  • Prohibition of the use of psychoactive substances: Severe retaliation for those who fail to comply with this order.

Likewise, schedules were established for the operation of commercial and entertainment establishments.

Mobility schedules and home gardens: Specifications on mobility schedules and the creation of home gardens managed by residents.

  • Weekdays: Establishments must close at 10:00 PM.
  • Weekends: They can operate until 2:00 AM.
  • Music volume: Should be moderate.
  • Post-event order: Businesses must have warehouses to avoid messes and baskets to keep the roads clear.

This dynamic not only threatens the autonomy of citizens, but also creates an environment of fear and repression, limiting the possibilities of social and economic development in the region. Such tactics are a clear manifestation of the weakness of the State in these areas, where the effective presence of government authorities is insufficient to guarantee the security and rights of the inhabitants.
