Offices of leftist parties attacked in Bogota

by Adriaan Alsema October 11, 2019

The offices of leftist parties were attacked in Bogota on Friday, two weeks before Colombia’s local elections.

The office of the FARC, the political party of demobilized guerrillas, and the office shared by the Colombian Communist Party (PC) and the Patriotic Union (UP) were attacked.

The attackers opened fire at the PC / UP office and threw a firebomb through the window that failed to go off. From the FARC’s office, the attackers took propaganda material, according to a representative.

The attackers left pamphlets signed with a skull saying “We’re back” at both offices.

A Celtic cross, a symbol used by neo-nazi groups Third Force and the National Socialist Union of Colombia, was spray-painted on the front of the FARC office.
