These statements were offered in an official statement of the Colombian political party after a series of attacks against important members of this awning, events that shocked their leaders and resulted in this public appeal.
Likewise, FARC asked the Government of Colombia for guarantees to the lives of those who make up this political group, in addition to demanding the cessation of persecution and what they called stigmatization of its members.
"We demand from the National Government guarantees for life, cessation of persecution and stigmatization against the militants of our party; as well as, of the communities of the regions, of human rights defenders, leaders and social, environmental and popular leaders "says the statement.
Colombia is one of the countries in Latin America with the highest rate of kidnappings and murders against social leaders , indigenous people, peasants and human rights defenders, a fact that has set off the alarms of those who fight on Colombian soil for the peace process.
