Colombia: New Groups Killing Afro-Colombians

FARC Dissidents, Opposing Peace Pact, Terrorize Towns

Groups that emerged from the demobilized Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrillas are terrorizing the mostly Afro-Colombian municipality of Tumaco, Human Rights Watch said in a report released on 13 December.

The 57-page report, “Recycled Violence: Abuses by FARC Dissident Groups in Tumaco on Colombia’s Pacific Coast,” shows how flaws in the demobilization of FARC guerrillas—and in their reincorporation into society—helped prompt the formation of these new dissident groups. These groups, including People of Order, United Guerrillas of the Pacific, and the Oliver Sinisterra Front. now batter urban neighborhoods and rural hamlets of Tumaco. These groups have engaged in scores of killings in Tumaco, contributing to a dramatic spike in homicide rates.Human Rights Watch
