"Recordamos que aún Diego Blanco se encuentra reclutado. El ejercito a dilatado el proceso haciéndolo mas lento de lo que corresponde. en estos momentos ya se debería tener una respuesta del desacuartelamiento de Diego Blanco, lo que hasta el momento se han quedado en palabras dilatoria como les venia contando.

COLOMBIA: Activists mocked a TV show promoting military service by a video

Here is a satire video by activists from Colombia, mocking a TV show in which obligatory military service and the “libreta militar” (which people are given when they complete miltiary service) is promoted strongly.

This video was made in response and dissent of this promotion, which was broadcast on 28 July 2016 on Personeria TV.

 

We need them: campaign against femicide in Cali

Colectiva Reparando Ausencias (Repairing Absences Group)

"We need them Because they were willing to love, they dressed up, all they wanted was to be happy as in fairy tales and they were unaware that many times they end like horror stories. Because they loved their neighbour - a neighbour - more than themselves. They obeyed the mandate to endure, to hope for love to change him, they abided solemnly "until death do us part".

Colombia: las paces desde una perspectiva antimilitarista latinoamericana

Por Pelao Carvallo

Medellín años ’90Medellín años ’90Me ilusionó el sí en Colombia pese a que la idea de plebiscitar la paz me parece (y me parecía) una estrategia equivocada, tanto en lo coyuntural como en el largo plazo. Esto porque cualquier propuesta de paz debe implicar también deshacerse de la lógica de guerra que tanto favorece a los militaristas de toda orientación ideológica.

El camino electoral reproduce la misma lógica binaria del militarismo; ganadores v/s perdedores, victoria v/s derrota. Esto  fue posible porque solemos olvidar que el acuerdo de paz es producto de la negociación entre dos actores armados (las FARC –EP, fuerzas armadas revolucionarias de Colombia- Ejército del Pueblo y el gobierno colombiano) quienes aún mantienen lógicas de guerra tanto para entender el conflicto como para diseñar estrategias de salida a él.
