As Mayerli was leaving the family home at around 6pm, she noticed the men pointing handguns at her from a car parked in front of the house. The 12 year-old managed to flee back into the house, where she was being accompanied by indigenous guards. The men then proceeded to drive around the house in the car, before fleeing when they realised that the indigenous guards were in the house.

PREVENTATIVE ACTION:

URIBE'S STRATEGY - DISPOSSESSION, LIES, AGRESSION, FALSE POSITIVES, JUDICIAL FRAME-UPS and IMPUNITY

Santiago de Cali, 7 April 2009

Valle University, EMSIRVA and EMCALI are laboratories of the Uribe government's third phase of neo-liberalism: the definitive handover of public commonwealth to private corporations and the multinationals.

They were prohibited from going to school and to university.

They were prohibited from constitutional guarantees.

They were prohibited from all the sciences, except military science.

Prohibiting the right to complain, they were prohibited from questioning.

Today I suggest to you, my brother, that this does not happen again,

Prohibited to Forget!
