Colombia: two more farmers murdered by the Army in Catatumbo

The Colombian Army murdered two more farmers today (other two were killed days ago) as they shoot with live fire against the marching crowd marching peacefully towards Ocaña de Santander. Some other 13 at least 30 people were injured.

A speaker of the farmer movement, Jhony Orril, denounced the merciless repression by the armed forces, stating that:

This government does not want peace, they want repression. We denounce and repudiate the military cupola and the government of José Manuel Santos.

Some 100 people demonstrated in Bogotá, before the Ministry of Agriculture, in solidarity with the farmers.
