Second open letter health, food, URGENT water and response to GLOBAL HUMANITARIAN AGREEMENT COVID19.



REF: Second open letter health, food, URGENT water and response to GLOBAL HUMANITARIAN AGREEMENT COVID19.
Today Holy Thursday, a sign of solidarity, service and love, also it is 9 April the national day of the victims, we want to remind you that on March 18th we addressed to your office an Open Letter clamouring for a Global Humanitarian Agreement by COVID1911.

To this day we have not had a single demonstration, a gesture, a message in your daily television program, not even a minimal response our letter by email. We understand your occupations and your concerns.

Like you we also have family, grandchildren, sons, grandparents and grandmothers. Like you, we are also sons and daughters of this country Colombia. Two babies have died in our communities this week alone. And we have more than 700 people in our various territories with symptoms of malaria, dengue, flu and malnutrition.

he strong climate change expressed in intense summer with high temperatures that have dried up our water sources, drying up rivers and ravines, has us close to famine in some territories. In other communities, the rains have intensified, destroying our homes and our crops. In others places, we still manage to sustain ourselves, but it will not be for more than twenty days. In other places we live the continuity of the dispossession, the agro-industrialists continue their business without any kind of contemplation, even paying much less the wage. Please find below information on communities in more serious situations.

That is why in this second communication we respectfully request that immediate and urgent measures be taken to prevent the expansion of COVID19 in our territories. You will read one by one the names of our communities and observe that these are territories affected by the continuity of the war with different modalities and with different motivations. And coincidentally these are territories of great wealth with the conditions of historical exclusion.

We have had the ability to overcome the violence. In honor of our tortured, murdered, disappeared, displaced, sexually abused, uprooted we love Life and Peace.

However, today we need your response to deal preventively with the COVID19 pandemic. This means access to drinking water, food supplies, and urgent attention to the symptoms of malaria, dengue and other diseases that are affecting us. This URGENT decision will avoid serious consequences and social, environmental and cultural effects of the so-called quarantine from which we will hardly recover.

Mr. President, those of us who are in remote territories, that scarcely we know the military, sometimes by air only, are in extremely delicate and serious situations. We are in urgent need of medical care in several of the indigenous, Afro-Colombian, Afro-mestizo and peasant communities. There are high levels of malnutrition. We are without water.
We all have the right to live.

We’re not begging for alms. For 25 or 30 years we have been calling for a comprehensive state presence. Here it is up to us to confront those who commit violence for our vocation for peace. Both those who claim to defend democracy and those who want a different democracy.

We have distributed copies of the letter addressed to you, which we also wrote to the ELN and the FARC.

As well as other armed groups like the AGC. And we must say, so far, the ELN has listened in the territories we inhabit. The FARC in Putumayo and Caquetá have listened. Some AGC groups have heard too. And we have yet to convince others in many regions.

Our proposal for a Global Humanitarian Agreement by COVID19 remains standing and awaits your response. It also awaits the response of some armed groups in some regions.
In Nariño, in the middle of Atrato Bojayá, in Catatumbo, in subregions of Putumayo and Cauca.

We advocate these regions, without taking on the voice of the organizations in these regions, but where we are sure they are clamoring for the same.

Today President we reiterate that this first right to live can be realized today, if you, as the Commander of the MFF, takes a decision consistent with humanitarian law and the support you expressed to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, and you accept our proposal to cease violence by COVID19. Violence, regardless of whether it is legal, must stop now, until the pandemic ends.

In a month or more they will not resolve the armed uprising of the ELN, or the uprising of new expressions called the FARC. In a month you will not dismantle the paramilitarism created since 2006 or called GAO by the governments. It is time to stop. It is a reasonable measure for the soldiers themselves.

If you take the time to read our previous letter you will see that we are not asking you to lay down their weapons or stop acting. We tell them to read reality and to exercise their functions in another way, without offensive operations against anyone, unless attacked. Actually, exercise operations of effective control, respectful of human rights, avoid approaching our communities. Stopping the forced eradication of military and police units is an advantage for life and a means of solving drug trafficking. Stop taking advantage of this time to continue generating additional anxiety to the one that already exists.

Our communities where there are coca leaf plantations, we continue to voluntarily replace it as much as possible by isolation.

We join the cry of the impoverished and middle class in the big cities and municipalities who need to eat and work daily or be able to pay their debts; We understand and join men and women deprived of liberty in calling for action to address COVID19.The 19 murders in Putumayo, a murder by military in Nariño. Combat in Bojayá and Baudó. Threats, assassinations of leaders, ex combatants. All this must stop.

Our call Mr. president it is politics for the common good. It’s time to change. The war for peace, the ambition for solidarity, the expansion of COVID19 by a contagion that goes from hatred to love and from injustice to socio-environmental inclusion 2020.

The patron saint of Colombia you made an appeal is the patron saint of solidarity and social justice environmental. It’s time to change. The virgin is virgin for giving life to Life, for enabling life more than death. And, as Pope Francis said, we must be in the same boat and this boat is the boat of all.

COVID19 embraces without distinction, Life the value of beautiful life can embrace us all. Rich and excluded, blacks and mestizos, indigenous and white, soldiers and guerrillas, guerrillas and guerrillas, ex-paramilitaries and guerrillas. It’s time to change. Let us untie the knots and create another Colombia, the one you invoke on the virgin, which we invoke every day in times of war and pandemic.

We hope to receive answers based on truth, without calculation to false loyalties or better only in loyalty to the life of rights for all.

We await your response by email: [email protected]
