Far-right Duque supporters say 'we will finish' one of Colombia's worst massacres

by Adriaan Alsema January 21, 2021

Colombia’s far-right group “Aguilas Negras” claim “we will finish” the massacre in the village of El Salado that left more than 60 locals dead in 2000.

According to the town’s leaders, they have been receiving death threats from the “Aguilas Negras” since Friday last week and were cut off the power grid on Sunday.

Same victim leaders threatened again

Among the leaders who have been threatened are victim representatives Luis Torres and Yirley Velasco, who has suffered multiple threats since she was raped during the massacre when she was only 14.

Both have been active in trying to rebuild their town, but have possibly received more death threats than responses from the government to help them get over the violence.


Unbearable to know this continues all these long years of hard right violent control. The people are still helpless.
