Columbia’s economy to grow faster than most in Latin America: CardenasBy Bloomberg | Dec 26, 2014 3:05 pm 

Colombia’s diversified economy will enable it to grow faster than most Latin American countries next year, even after oil prices slumped, Finance Minister Mauricio Cardenas said. Oil accounts for just 16 percent of the central government’s revenue, Cardenas said in a phone interview from Antioquia province. “Colombia is much less fiscally dependent on oil than...

Columbia on the move: Hmmm, must be the river.  Pretty sure the university is nailed to its perch. Of course, there's always the sportswear company and Columbia Pictures, too.

More than one third of Indigenous peoples in Colombia are threatened with "extermination", according to the country's highest court, and face an "emergency as serious as it is invisible." This crisis is fueled by violent incursions into Indigenous territory, forced displacement and the imposition of megaprojects.

Quote:
Trade unions, human rights organizations, and other social organizations in Colombia have often been labelled as guerrilla collaborators or supporters by government officials, as well as by the security forces and paramilitaries. Such accusations have often been followed by threats or attacks against human rights activists. Colombia is one of the countries with the highest rate of killings of trade unionists.

Quote:
According to the NGO Somos Defensores, some 30 human rights defenders were killed in the first six months of 2014, while at least 70 human rights defenders, including community, Indigenous and Afro-descendant leaders, were killed in 2013. The National Trade Union School (Escuela Nacional Sindical, ENS) reported that 27 members of trade unions were killed in 2013. Land activists and those working on impunity have been particularly vulnerable to attacks.

First US Troops Arrive in Colombia Pursuant To Latest Deployment

http://dlvr.it/RXz1wy

"Never before has Colombia been as submissive, as subservient to the politics of the United States as it is today. This government is serving the most unpopular foreign policy in the world, a policy that has been ordered by the most radical and extreme factions of the White House,' Senator Ivan Cepeda stated."

Pity no Canadian politician will admit a precisely similar truth about Canada. Pity so few seem to care.

AEP 83: Update on #ColombiaResiste with Manuel Rozental (podcast)

https://podur.org/2021/05/08/aep-83-update-on-colombiaresiste-with-manue...

"An urgent update on the massive protests in Colombia and the criminal response by the regime, which has massacred dozens of protesters and disappeared hundreds of people..."

NDPP

"Police in the right-wing Colombian narco-regime have killed dozens of anti-austerity protesters, and now the prosecutor's office says at least 129 protesters have disappeared. This is the extreme violence the US [and Canada] sponsors while lying about Venezuela."

North, Colombia's regime is reactionary and it's main policy is pursuing the brutal, repressive and utterly discredited "war on drugs".

Also, they've been stooges for the Yanks in their long-term fight to overthrow the elected government of Venezuela and replace it with a far-right austerity government that would do unto the people of that country what the IMF and Milton Friedmand did unto Chile and Jamaica in the Seventies.

 

Why on Earth would you start cheerleading for THAT government?

Because he believes in the Washington Consensus and NATO hegemony and when the imperial media tells him an allied regime is a good thing he believes them because they share his world view.

'Colombian protesters are burning US and Israeli flags'

"Israel is the second largest supplier of arms to the Colombian military after the USA. It has no problem doing to Colombia what it's doing to Palestine..."

We should be burning them here in Canada too. Both are 'a blight unto the nations'
