Bogota - Despite repeated calls for peace during anti-governmental protests, Colombia receives this Wednesday 2020 in a context marked by assassinations of former guerrillas, indigenous people and social leaders.
Violence was news throughout 2019, including the first days of December since on day 3 it was spread that a social leader, a former guerrilla and a mayor were murdered.
Subsequently, the Regional Indigenous Council of Cauca (CRIC) condemned the Jimmy Alberto Pacue's assassination, another native in a country where these communities are frequent victims of violence.
In mid-December, the FARC party denounced that President Ivan Duque 'continues to violate the Peace Agreement' (signed in 2016 by the State and former FARC-EP guerrilla).
Additionally, as a reminder that a year of mobilization began in Colombia, citizens welcomed 2020 with a 'cacerolazo' (pot banging protest), while expressing themselves through digital social networks with the use of the #VivaElParoNacional (LiveNationalStrike) hashtag.
