The cleansing has just begun, death to all: Colombias paramilitaries

written by Adriaan Alsema April 26, 2017

Pamphlets signed by the AGC, Colombia’s largest illegal armed group, confirmed the paramilitaries’ apparent attempt to consolidate power in former FARC territories throughout the country.

While some 7,000 FARC guerrillas are still in rural camps while they demobilize, disarm and reintegrate under a peace deal with the government, the AGC in those areas announced a social cleansing and a 9PM curfew while confirming their intention is “to control, organize and recuperate territory from the FARC drug traffickers.”

The pamphlets are the latest demonstration of the AGC’s extensive power that has been steadily growing since their formation in 2006.

. . .

Apart from threatening to kill anyone considered undesirable by the group, the AGC imposed a 9PM curfew that would be imposed by lethal force.
