The genocide in Colombia

Azalea Robles denounces
at Rebelión the existence of a mass burial, with at least 2000 corpses at the municipality of La Macarena, Meta department, Colombia. She also shows outage that its existence, repeatedly denounced by human rights groups from Spain and Britain, as well as by the neighbours, alerted by missing people and leakings to drinking water, has been ignored by the media both in Colombia as elsewhere.

She reports worry for the danger that the Army, that is clerly behind it, is trying to dismantle it before it's researched.

The Asturian Committee for Human Rights also report of another mass burial at Argelia, Valle del Cauca, which they describe as a slaughterhouse for human beings. Some 4200 mass burials are known to exist in Colombia.

Azalea Robles has also reported previously of c. 50,000 murdered (of which more than 2500 labor unionists) by the army and death squads, many of them made to totally vanish by throwing them to the caymans or burning them in ovens, like the Nazis.

She reports vividly, from the words of a death squad member, how truckloads of innocent civilians were used en masse for the most macabre practices of how to dismember people alive back in 1994.

Besides the 50,000 murdered, some four million have been forcibly displaced and their lands (c. 6 million hectares) robbed to sell them to the multinational corporations, landowners and the very military officers in charge of these crimes.

The following companies are considered to be accomplices of the Colombian state terrorism: Coca-Cola, Nestlé, Chiquita Brands, Drummond, Cemex, Holcim, Muriel Mining Corporation, Glencore-Xtrata, Anglo-American, BHP, Billington, Anglo Gold Ashanti, Kedaha, Smurfit Kappa - Cartón de Colombia, Pizano S.A., Maderas de Darién, Urapalma S.A., Monsanto, Dyncorp, Multifruit S.A. (branch of Del Monte multinational), Occidental Petroleum Corporation, British Petroleum, Repsol YPF, Unión Fenosa, Endesa, Aguas de Barcelona, Telefónica, Canal Isabel II, Suez, Ecopetrol, Petrominerales, Gran Tierra Energy, Brisa S.A., Empresas Públicas de Medellín, B2 Gold - Cobre y Oro de Colombia S.A.
