The majority of Colombia's youth have particapated directly or indirectly in the conflict: war seemed the only option.</p> <p>Peace negotiations between the Colombian government and the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC), and the possible involvement of the Ejército de Liberación Nacional (ELN) guerillas, are an opportunity to overcome armed conflict. However, for conscientious objectors and antimilitarists, it is clear that building a sustainable and lasting peace involves overcoming the structural causes of conflict, including the economic model, the concentration of wealth, land dispossession, social and political violence, patriarchy, poverty, social inequality, and (of course) militarism, amongst other forces.</p> <h3>More soldiers than teachers</h3> <p>Colombia remains one of the most militarised countries in the region. The figures are clear: we have the second largest army after Brazil; investment in “security and defence” is approximately 27.4 billion pesos, the second highest in the region (3.4% of GDP); there are 6.5 soldiers per 1,000 people, while there is only 1 doctor for every 3870. Colombia has more people in the armed forces than teachers. We have a surplus of police, but we need 23,800 more physicians.</p> <p align="LEFT"><span>M</span><span>ilitarisation is directly related to the imposition of a neoliberal capitalist economic model that benefits a few at the expense of the many. In this sense, the challenge of demilitarising society </span><span>is large and complex.</span></p> <h3 align="LEFT"><span>Challenging militarism in Colombia</span></h3> <p><span><span><span>ACOOC understand that this struggle involves designing nonviolent actions for the long and short term that will escalate and deepen the nonviolent and antimilitarist approach, towards social change.</span></span></span></p> <p align="LEFT" lang="en" xml:lang="en" xml:lang="en"><span><span><span>We use nonviolent action in our struggle against conscription, against the libreta militar (the military card you receive on completion of military service – this card determines access to many rights), against illegal recruitment by the Colombian military, and to secure the right to conscientious objection.</span></span></span></p> <p align="LEFT" lang="en" xml:lang="en" xml:lang="en"><span><strong>In recent years we have made significant progress</strong>. Conscientious objection is now recognised as a fundamental right in the constitution; military 'raids' (batidas) – forced recruitment (press gangs as they are called in English) – are now banned (although in reality they still happen), and the libreta militar is no longer needed to gain a degree (see my photo above)!</span></p> <p align="LEFT" lang="en" xml:lang="en" xml:lang="en"><span>We are confident that the small gaps we have forced open will clear the way for the deepening of our struggle, and in turn offer us new challenges.</span></p> <p align="LEFT" lang="en" xml:lang="en" xml:lang="en"><span><span><span><strong>None of this would have been possible without the sustained solidarity of War Resisters' International</strong>, who have supported us for the last 15 years.

libreta militar (military card), will no longer be required to graduate from university in Colombia, meaning that those who have not completed military service will now be able to receive their degrees. However, a libreta militar is still required for the enjoyment of many other rights. For example, you still require a libreta militar to work in many jobs. When batidas (forced recruitment raids) occur, it is those without a libreta militar i.e. those who cannot prove that they have completed compulsory military service, including conscientious objectors, who are most at risk. <strong>Antimilitarists in Colombia will continue to campaign for the abolition of the libreta</strong>, and indeed military service.

<div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field--item"><p><span><span>On Thursday 14 August the young conscientious objector, JOSÍAS JOHAN PATIÑO was on his way to work. Around 7 a.m. he was at the Aguacatala station when, under orders from Captain Barrera, members of the national army, Sergeant Peña and auxiliary prison guard Gutierrez from the 6th Division, twenty seventh brigade in the Department of Putumayo, stormed the Aguacatala metro station. They asked for and withheld the identity card of the young man mentioned as a way of coercing him to climb into the truck which the army uses for recruiting young men by force i.e. rather than issuing the appropriate summons to resolve his military situation as law 48 of 1993 states. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>JOSÍAS JOHAN PATIÑO was recruited by force by CAPTAIN BARRERA, SARGENT PEÑA and the auxiliary prison guard GUTIÉRREZ. This action falls under the punishable conduct of arbitrary detention and ignores the order by the Constitutional Court in sentence C-879 of 2011, where it says that "no young person can be forced to get in the truck, or be recruited by force. i.e. no young person can be driven to barracks or military districts, be detained by authorities for long periods of time, or obliged to undergo examinations. Neither can they be forced to join the ranks". It also violates article 28 of the C.N. which says: "Everyone is free. No one can bother his person or family, nor imprison or arrest him, nor detain him, or his registered address, without written documentation from a competent authority, following legal formalities and for reasons previously defined in law"...</span></span></p> <p><span><span>A few days ago JOSÍAS JOHAN PATIÑO was trying to resolve his military situation, and was going through the necessary steps, including undergoing a medical examination which was carried out in the Buenos Aires battalion in the city of Medellín. The examination declared him unfit for compulsory military service since it revealed a problem of varicocele. For unknown reasons they have withheld the results of that examination. This prevents him from making any claim relating to the examination and it is also in violation of the due process, which then denies him any possibility of being able to defend himself on health grounds which determine whether he is suitable or not for serving compulsory military service. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>They blatantly violated fundamental rights to freedom of worship and conscience as recorded in articles 18 and 19 of the C.N. and the right to conscious objection to the compulsory military service, which is a fundamental right according to the statement C-728 of 2009. They didn’t take into account the concept of the UN’s working group on arbitrary detention in its opinion No 8/2008 (Colombia), which declares the practice which was carried out as a form of arbitrary detention, as is the recruitment of conscientious objectors. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>The young JOSÍAS JOHAN PATIÑO is currently in artillery battalion # 27 (jungle Monterrico - Balot, annexed to Bajes) Puerto Asis of the seventh Division commanded by Sergeant Quintero. The young man said on several occasions that the compulsory military service and everything about it was against his principles, thus all the time he was held by force by the fourth brigade and Bomboná battalion, he was pushed around and on the plane they put him between auxiliary prison guards, he was subjected to mockery, and they stole his underwear. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>I ask you to show your solidarity with him and his family, since those who care for his mother don’t have the economic or logistical resources to meet their needs. It is therefore necessary to send the following via a church or organization close to the battalion, underwear, a blanket, a Bible, shirts and trousers (he says that they will not provide a uniform and he only has two shirts and one pair of trousers). </span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><span><span>Please provide support through prayer and help to provide for advocacy work. A writ of protection of constitutional rights has already been applied for. An interim measure was requested to not move him to Putumayo while the judge made his pronouncement, but the military did not take this into consideration.</span></span></p>

<em>Salvador talking about nonviolence</em></p> <p>
Salvador, long-time activist with the conscientious objection group “<a href="//quintomandamiento.wordpress.com/" target="”_blank”">Quinto Mandamiento</a>” in Barrancabermeja, needs emergency medical support.</p> <p>
Friends of Salvador informed us that Salvador has been admitted to a hospital in Barrancabermeja in January 2014, suffering from tuberculosis. Due to the tuberculosis, he is now paralysed on the left side. On top of all this his medical insurance ran out a few days ago, and initially the health insurance provider EPS SaludCoop refused to readmit him because he is “a very ill patient”. On top of struggling for his health, he also had to struggle to be readmitted into the health insurance system – with success on 7 February 2014.</p> <p>

Salvador himself as part of the group Quinto Mandamiento has been the target of such death threats (see for example: <a href="http://www.wri-irg.org/node/14296">http://www.wri-irg.org/node/14296</a>).</p> <p>
I personally know Salvador since 2007, and have met him at several visits to Barrancabermeja, the last time in November 2012. I was always impressed by his energy, his optimism, and he always had a smile on his face, in spite of the difficult circumstances he was living and struggling in.</p> <p>
Today, Salvador is fighting a different struggle, a struggle for his health. And in this struggle too he needs our support – our moral support, but also our financial support. 
His friends in Colombia are presently working on:</p> <ul> <li>getting him transferred from Barrancabermeja to Bucaramanga or Bogota, where he would be able to receive better treatment;</li> <li>clarifying which part of his treatment will be paid for pay the EPS SaludCoop and which not, </li> <li>getting more medical advice.</li> </ul> <p>All this will cost money – and especially his treatment. Right now, the most urgent issue is his transfer to another city where he can receive better treatment and where his health status can be stablised.</p> <h2>Donations in support</h2> <p>

write-up of the trip made by Hannah Brock (<a href="/programmes/rrtk">Right to Refuse to Kill</a> programme worker) and Igor Seke (of the Right to Refuse to Kill committee), from 28th October – 8th November 2013. We were joined by Rachel Brett, of the <a href="http://www.quno.org/">Quaker United Nations Office</a> [QUNO] (and member of the Right to Refuse to Kill committee), from 30th October – 3rd November. <a href="/">War Resisters' International</a> has been working closely with Colombia groups since 2006 (have a look at our <a href="/ColombiaTripReport2012">last trip report</a> - from 2012 - for more information). This report is divided into two sections: a word on the activities we took part in in Colombia (click <a href="#Conscientious objection in Colombia">here</a>), and the future work likely to result from WRI's collaboration with Colombian groups (read about <a href="#Future work">here</a>). <a id="Conscientious objection in Colombia"></a></p> <h2>Conscientious objection in Colombia</h2> <p>Colombia has endured almost 60 years of armed conflict, engaging left-wing guerillas, right-wing paramilitaries with government armed forces - heavily complicated by the narco-trade. We visited at a time when many commentators – from within and without Colombia – are talking about the move to a 'post-conflict scenario'. This mostly follows talks between the Colombia government and FARC (<em>Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia</em>). Whilst of course many Colombians feel optimism and relief about this opportunity for change, FARC are far from being the only non-state armed actor in Colombia, and the Colombian military itself are hardly a trusted presence.<a href="#fn1" id="fr1">[1]</a> Meanwhile, conscientious objection – whilst provided for in the Colombia constitution<a href="#fn2" id="fr2">[2]</a> - is by no means a real option for conscripts 'on the ground'. Conscientious objectors have been subject to imprisonment for 'desertion', <a href="”/node/22276" target="”_blank”">forcibly recruited</a> during <em>batidas</em> (recruitment raids, like press gangs, often taking place on the streets or on buses), and face discrimination. This discrimination is often related to their lack of a <em>libreta militar</em> – the identity card handed to those who have completed their military service – without which, you are unable to graduate, or obtain many jobs. Being without this card also puts you at risk in <em>batidas</em>.</p> <h2>Campaigning in Bogotá</h2> <h3>District commission</h3> <p>Since 2009, when Colombia's constitutional court ruled that there is a right to conscientious objection to military service under the Colombian constitution, <a href="//objetoresbogota.org/" target="”_blank”">Acción colectiva de objetores y objetoras de conciencia</a> (ACOOC), our hosts in Bogotá, have been campaigning with others to see this ruling put into practice. Recently, a district-wide process in Bogotá has seen the Defensoria (Ombudsmen), UN High Commission for Human Rights, <a href="//www.bogotahumana.gov.co/" target="”_blank”">Bogotá Humana</a> (the Bogotá Mayoral programme), ACOOC and others come together with the Ministry of Defence and armed forces representatives to found a Commission that will work to put this Constitutional Court ruling – along with a second Court ruling, which declared <em>batidas</em> unconstitutional – into practice. We attended the launch of the commission, and spoke on WRI's work in Colombia. In the meeting, we learned that brigades from different parts of the country often arrive in Bogotá to undertake a <em>batida</em> – and vice versa. The army recruitment office who was present caused frustration by leaving directly after making his intervention, leaving no time to engage in discussion, and by avoiding affirming the right to conscientious objection. Much of WRI's network refrain from working with the military, and it is clear that doing so will pose many challenges for those in Bogotá, though they argue that doing so will quicken a shift in policy on the ground for COs. <a href="//www.bogotahumana.gov.co/" target="”_blank”">Bogotá Humana</a> (from the Mayor's office) want to declare Bogotá a <em>batida</em>-free zone.

They are also providing space on their website – and on paper forms (see photo)– for <em>batidas</em> to be listed and denounced. <em>Updated 10th December</em>: Mayor Gustavo Petro, Bogotá's Mayor, has been banned from office. This leaves the role of the Bogotá local government into question somewhat.</p> <h2>CO workshop and public forum</h2> <p>ACOOC, along with <a href="//www.justapaz.org/" target="”_blank”">JustaPaz</a>, facilitated a public forum which explored the political and judicial tools that can be used to support COs. Rachel Brett's talk (download it <a href="”/sites/default/files/public_files/Rachel%20Brett%3A%20International%20Standards%20on%20Conscientious%20Objection%20to%20Military%20Service%20and%20Alternative%20Service%20applicable%20to%20Colombia_0.pdf" target="”_blank”">here</a> or see International Standards on Conscientious Objection to Military Service and Alternative Service applicable to Colombia, below) focused on the multiple international standards that Colombia is subject to in relation to conscientious objection. Following the 2009 constitutional court decision stating that conscientious objection is provided for in the constitution, a legal process has been <a href="”/node/20460" target="”_blank”">ongoing</a>, followed by ACOOC, proposing a law that would regulate for the right of conscientious objection. See video of ACOOC's Julián Ovalle explaining this process in the video (en castellano), and in the <a href="system/files/Juli%C3%A1n%20Ovalle%3A%20Proceso%20legislativo%20objecion%20de%20conciencia_0.pdf" target="”_blank”">Proceso legislativo objecion de conciencia</a> presentation below. I presented the <a href="//co-guide.org/es" target="”_blank”">Guía del Sistema Internacional de Derechos Humanos para Objetores de Conciencia</a> (Spanish language version of <a href="//co-guide.org/" target="”_blank”">A Conscientious Objector's Guide to the International Human Rights System</a>) – an online tool that gives conscientious objector movements the information they need to access human rights mechanisms. We also heard about the mobilisation of 24th August – an important moment where groups across Colombia demonstrated in support of conscientious objection (watch <a href="//www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOm7nalOASs" target="”_blank”">video</a> below).

We learned about the irregular and shocking cases of several conscientious objectors who have either faced forcible recruitment or were arbitrarily detained. Along with QUNO, we will accompany several of these COs to use international and regional human right systems to get their cases heard. It was good to see in the evaluation that participants all felt like having attended, they were more able to support COs, with more information on using international and national mechanisms, through the content input by WRI, QUNO and ACOOC.</p> <h2>Bucaramanga and Medellin</h2> <p>Having waved Rachel off in Bogotá, Igor and I travelled to Bucaramanga for the Décimo Festival Nacional de la Juventud. Here, we faced some challenges about our commitment to nonviolence, but were amazed by the level of interest in conscientious objection as a stance, from individuals groups including <a href="//andescolombia.blogspot.com.es/" target="”_blank”">ANDES</a> (<em>Asociacion nacional de estudiantes de secundaria</em>). We also met with members of antimilitarist groups such as Labatorias por la Paz in Bogotá, and Quinto Mandimiento in Barrancabemeja.</p> <!-- THEME DEBUG --><!-- THEME HOOK: 'entity_embed_container' --><!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'modules/contrib/entity_embed/templates/entity-embed-container.html.twig' --><div data-embed-button="image_embed" data-entity-embed-display="image:responsive_image" data-entity-embed-display-settings="body_inline_half" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="9e17093a-b2d1-46a4-8820-47c258857ce2" data-langcode="en" class="embedded-entity align-left"> <!-- THEME DEBUG --><!-- THEME HOOK: 'responsive_image_formatter' --><!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'core/modules/responsive_image/templates/responsive-image-formatter.html.twig' --><!-- THEME DEBUG --><!-- THEME HOOK: 'responsive_image' --><!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'core/modules/responsive_image/templates/responsive-image.html.twig' --><!-- THEME DEBUG --><!-- THEME HOOK: 'image' --><!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'themes/contrib/bootstrap/templates/system/image.html.twig' --><p><img srcset="/sites/default/files/public_files/styles/large/public/20131103_160018cropped.home.jpg?itok=4OD3Ypbk 1x" src="/sites/default/files/public_files/styles/large/public/20131103_160018cropped.home.jpg?itok=4OD3Ypbk" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></p> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'themes/contrib/bootstrap/templates/system/image.html.twig' --><!-- END OUTPUT from 'core/modules/responsive_image/templates/responsive-image.html.twig' --><!-- END OUTPUT from 'core/modules/responsive_image/templates/responsive-image-formatter.html.twig' --></div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'modules/contrib/entity_embed/templates/entity-embed-container.html.twig' --><p>Some of those expressing an interest in conscientious objection were doing so because they are not interested in joining the state's army: not nonviolent activists, but with vocal or implicit respect for other armed forces, including left-wing paramilitaries. Although a rejection of the army should be welcome on the one hand, it will be a challenge for other COs to keep their voice heard, speak up for CO as an antimilitarist strategy, and to keep CO as part of a pacifist struggle in the eyes of the public. We distributed some copies of <a href="”/es/br-home.htm" target="”_blank”"><em>El Fusil Roto</em></a>, and <a href="”/pubs/objetoras-antologia" target="”_blank”"><em>Objetoras de conciencia. Antología.</em></a> In Medellin, we met with WRI's Colombian section – <a href="//www.facebook.com/redjuvenil.medellin" target="”_blank”"><em>Red Juvenil de Medellin</em></a> – who were planning their strategy for the next three years, including their feminist school. Their pursuit of feminist antimilitarism is a strength to WRI's network. Also active in Medellin are <em>el Kolectivo Antimilitarista de Medellin</em>, and in 'Future Plans' below you can read about ideas for action we developed with them. In Medellin, we also attended a meeting of a group of antimilitarists organisations who have started meeting together regularly, including a collective exploring alternative non-militaristic masculinities. Also see 'Future Plans'.</p> <h2>Networking and media work</h2> <p>Our time in Colombia was also a good opportunity to make contacts in the media, and be interviewed for various broadcasters and newspapers, including <a href="//www.eltiempo.com/" target="”_blank”"><em>El Tiempo</em></a> and <a href="//prensarural.org/spip/" target="”_blank”"><em>Prensa Rural</em></a>. These contacts may well be of use in future years, in raising the profile of conscientious objection in Colombia. We also took the opportunity to meet with several groups working on conscientious objection and other issues of interest to WRI. These included <a href="//forusa.org/content/colombia-peace-presence" target="”_blank”"><em>Fellowship of Reconciliation USA</em></a>, the <a href="//www.coljuristas.org/index1.php?idioma=es&amp;grupo=1" target="”_blank”">Colombian Commission of Jurists</a> (who work with ACOOC in the <a href="//coeuropa.org.co/" target="”_blank”">Coordinación Colombia Europa Estados Unidos</a>) and staff from WRI's Catalan affiliate <a href="//www.centredelas.org/" target="”_blank”">Centre Delàs</a> currently based in Colombia. We also met with the <a href="//www.centredelas.org/" target="”_blank”"><em>Organización Nacional Indígena de Colombia</em></a> (ONIC) - which will be helpful in future for understanding militarizations and indigenous communities in WRI - and attended a breakfast briefing with representatives of country embassies based in Bogotá. <a id="Future work"></a></p> <h2>Future work</h2> <p>There are three key – and interrelated - issues that WRI hopes to campaign with Colombia groups on. Here are some of those campaign ideas:</p> <h3><em>Batidas</em></h3> <ul> <li>WRI will consider making a declaration condemning ongoing <em>batidas</em>, and welcoming moves in Bogotá to ban them. This declaration will be made with <em>el Kolectivo Antimilitarista de Medellin</em> and other groups.</li> <li>WRI will challenge <em>Defensorias</em> and <em>Personarias</em> in the Medellin region, asking firstly: What is done to stop impunity of those who undertake <em>batidas</em>? Because <em>batidas</em> are unconstitutional, WRI will ask where their activities can be reported. This will be an open (public) letter. Responses (including no response) can form part of WRI's submission on CO in Colombia to UN HR Committee.</li> </ul> <h3>Conscientious objection</h3> <ul> <li> <ul> <li>Working with the Colombian Commission of Jurists and ACOOC, and other partners, we will write a template for third party interventions in tutelas (writs for protection, which can prevent a CO being recruited). Though tutelas are only of us in particular cases, the short time-fame often available to submit applications means having an accessible template could be useful.</li> <li>The <a href="//www.oas.org/en/iachr/" target="”_blank”">Inter-American Commission on Human Rights</a> is falling behind other international and regional bodies in its treatment of conscientious objection. We'll work with the Colombian Commission of Jurists, QUNO and others to try and foster a positive environment for future CO cases to be heard. It's important that the Court recognises the complicated situation and multiple impacts for COs i.e. it's not just a case of going to prison and being released. The Commission should be asked to recognise that in places, such as Colombia, where, constitutionally, conscientious objection has been recognised but the state has failed to regulate for this, COs should not be harassed or punished for this failure.</li> <li>Meeting more COs at the forum and workshop in Bogotá, we increased the amount of COs we can accompany. They will be given publicity through our CO database, by our publishing their CO declaration, and we will provide them with tarjeta civils (CO ID cards, issued by WRI, that have protected against recruitment).</li> </ul> </li> </ul> <h3><em>Libreta militar</em> campaigning</h3> <ul> <li>Using one CO as a campaign focus, WRI intends to launch an international campaign on discrimination against COs – working to allow those without the <em>libreta militar</em> to graduate. Come back to our website for more information on this in a month!</li> </ul> <h3>Looking forward</h3> <!-- THEME DEBUG --><!-- THEME HOOK: 'entity_embed_container' --><!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'modules/contrib/entity_embed/templates/entity-embed-container.html.twig' --><div data-embed-button="image_embed" data-entity-embed-display="image:responsive_image" data-entity-embed-display-settings="body_inline_1_3" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="5b39ad24-c156-4e7a-a296-27e646bd60f1" data-langcode="en" class="embedded-entity align-left"> <!-- THEME DEBUG --><!-- THEME HOOK: 'responsive_image_formatter' --><!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'core/modules/responsive_image/templates/responsive-image-formatter.html.twig' --><!-- THEME DEBUG --><!-- THEME HOOK: 'responsive_image' --><!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'core/modules/responsive_image/templates/responsive-image.html.twig' --><!-- THEME DEBUG --><!-- THEME HOOK: 'image' --><!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'themes/contrib/bootstrap/templates/system/image.html.twig' --><p><img srcset="/sites/default/files/public_files/styles/max_325x325/public/poster.home.jpg?itok=nRJGuqKG 1x" src="/sites/default/files/public_files/styles/medium/public/poster.home.jpg?itok=qv0nFaV4" typeof="foaf:Image" class="img-responsive" /></p> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'themes/contrib/bootstrap/templates/system/image.html.twig' --><!-- END OUTPUT from 'core/modules/responsive_image/templates/responsive-image.html.twig' --><!-- END OUTPUT from 'core/modules/responsive_image/templates/responsive-image-formatter.html.twig' --></div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'modules/contrib/entity_embed/templates/entity-embed-container.html.twig' --><p>Our trip, as well as being a really enjoyable time in which WRI could demonstrate our solidarity in person with Colombian antimilitarists, taught us a lot about the status of conscientious objection in Colombia at the moment, and brought about many future plans for working together with Colombia CO groups. Having first visited in 2006, Igor was particularly impressed by the substantial difference in awareness and scale of conscientious objection between now and then. The challenge for antimilitarist conscientious objectors in Colombia, and those who support them, bearing in mind this change, is to maintain the basis of a nonviolent movement, with conscientious objection regarded as being a stand against violence per se – not just that of the state.</p> <p>[<a href="#fr1" id="fn1">1</a>] One high profile reason for this is <em>falsos positivos</em>. <em>Falsos positivos</em> (false positives) are scenarios fabricated by the military, in which civilians or conscripts are captured or killed and it is claimed, inaccurately, that they are guerillas. Last year we reported on the village of Tacueyo, in which 25 people were killed in a <em>falso positivo<em>.</em></em></p> <p>[<a href="#fr2" id="fn2">2</a>] Art. 216 of the Colombia constitution provides for compulsory military service for men aged 16 – 28. The constitution also states that "freedom of conscience is guaranteed. No one will be obliged to act against their conscience." In October 2009, the Constitutional Court of Colombia ruled that there is a right to conscientious objection to military service under the Colombian constitution, and urged the Colombian Congress to pass a law to regulate the right to conscientious objection.</p> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'themes/contrib/bootstrap/templates/field/field.html.twig' --> <!-- THEME DEBUG --> <!-- THEME HOOK:

derechos humanos para generar una cadena de acción, denuncia y visibilización del caso del joven JUAN CARLOS POVEDA CAMARGO, identificado con la Cedula de Ciudadanía número 1.031.144.854 de Bogotá; quien es Objetor de Conciencia y fue reclutado en una detención arbitraria (batida), el día 19 de mayo en la ciudad de Bogotá, por militares del Batallón de infantería N° 29 “Teniente Coronel GERMAN OCAMPO HERRERA” y trasladado de inmediato a las instalación ubicada en Apiai, departamento del Meta, donde se encuentra retenido en contra de su voluntad hasta la fecha de esta comunicación.</p> <p>JUAN CARLOS POVEDA CAMARGO en todo momento ha interlocutado de manera respetuosa con las autoridades militares del lugar, manifestándoles sus razones de conciencia y las que obedecen a su admisión para iniciar estudios en la Universidad Nacional de Colombia, además de ser integrante de la Fundación “Proyecto de Vida”.</p> <p>Debido a sus convicciones expresas como objetor de conciencia y a su negativa a portar uniforme, recibir la dotación, fusil y a firmar el acta de entrega respectiva, Juan Carlos ha sido sometido a presión psicológica constante al interior de las instalaciones militares, siendo obligado a cumplir con servicio de centinela en forma continua u obligándolo a permanecer despierto toda la noche, ocasionando en él estados de depresión y ansiedad muy alta.</p> <p>Las autoridades militares del lugar, desde el momento de la retención y hasta la fecha, han hecho caso omiso de las razones y peticiones hechas por el acompañante directo, con el apoyo de la Acción Colectiva de Objetores y Objetoras de Conciencia (como acompañantes de su proceso de formación como Objetor de Conciencia), y actualmente lo están presionando física y psicológicamente para que firme documentos y desista del ejercicio de su derecho; tomando en cuenta esta situación, a través de este escrito dejamos constancia de que la integridad física y psicológica de JUAN CARLOS POVEDA CAMARGO, EN ESTOS MOMENTOS ESTA EN MANOS DE LAS AUTORIDADES MILITARES DEL Batallón de Infantería No. 29 “Teniente Coronel “GERMAN OCAMPO HERRERA”, de las instancias de Derechos Humanos y Derecho Internacional Humanitario del Ejército y del Ministerio de Defensa. Nosotros como acompañantes del proceso hemos dado comunicación a la Red Nacional e Internacional de Apoyo a Objetores y Objetoras de Conciencia, como corresponde cuando el derecho está siendo vulnerado de manera flagrante.</p> <p>Frente a estos hechos solicitamos la solidaridad y el apoyo de ustedes a través de acciones conjuntas, encaminadas al desacuartelamiento inmediato y traslado de Juan Carlos Poveda a la ciudad de Bogotá, (lugar del cual no debió ser trasladado bajo ninguna circunstancia) garantizando las condiciones de seguridad pertinentes y el ejercicio pleno de sus derechos como Objetor de Conciencia.</p> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'themes/contrib/bootstrap/templates/field/field.html.twig' --> <!-- THEME DEBUG --> <!-- THEME HOOK: 'field' --> <!-- FILE NAME SUGGESTIONS: * field--field-programmes-projects--rss.html.twig * field--expert--node--field-programmes-projects--story.html.twig * field--expert--node--story.html.twig * field--expert--node--field-programmes-projects.html.twig * field--expert--field-programmes-projects--story.html.twig * field--expert--story.html.twig * field--expert--field-programmes-projects.html.twig * field--expert.html.twig * field--ds-field-expert.html.twig * field--node--field-programmes-projects--story.html.twig * field--node--field-programmes-projects.html.twig * field--node--story.html.twig * field--field-programmes-projects.html.twig * field--entity-reference.html.twig * field.html.twig --> <!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'modules/contrib/ds/templates/ds-field-expert.html.twig' --> <div class="field--label tags--label field-label-above">Programmes &amp; Projects</div> <div class="wri-main--tags"> <span class="rel-tag" > <a href="/en/programmes/support-colombian-conscientious-objectors" hreflang="en">Support Colombian conscientious objectors</a></span> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'modules/contrib/ds/templates/ds-field-expert.html.twig' --> <!-- THEME DEBUG --> <!-- THEME HOOK: 'links__node' --> <!-- FILE NAME SUGGESTIONS: * links--node.html.twig x links.html.twig --> <!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'themes/contrib/bootstrap/templates/system/links.html.twig' --> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'themes/contrib/bootstrap/templates/system/links.html.twig' --> <!-- THEME DEBUG --> <!-- THEME HOOK: 'field' --> <!-- FILE NAME SUGGESTIONS: * field--comment--rss.html.twig * field--default--node--comment--story.html.twig * field--default--node--story.html.twig * field--default--node--comment.html.twig * field--default--comment--story.html.twig * field--default--story.html.twig * field--default--comment.html.twig * field--default.html.twig * field--theme-ds-field-default.html.twig x field--node--comment--story.html.twig * field--node--comment.html.twig * field--node--story.html.twig * field--comment.html.twig * field.html.twig --> <!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'themes/custom/wri_main/templates/field/field--node--comment--story.html.twig' --> <section class="comments"> <h2>Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=22271&amp;2=comment&amp;3=comment" token="Ambjbq5Rj7gYn4EPMLGaIquqEvcTr_9tcLvpAVCZqBA"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'themes/custom/wri_main/templates/field/field--node--comment--story.html.twig' --> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'modules/contrib/ds/templates/ds-1col.html.twig' --> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'modules/contrib/ds/templates/ds-entity-view.html.twig' --> Mon, 24 Jun 2013 23:00:00 +0000 HBrock 22271 at https://updates.wri-irg.org https://updates.wri-irg.org/en/story/2013/juan-carlos-poveda-camargo#comments
