Caloto, April 10, 2015–Following the Cultural and territorial principles, in the exercise of our Autonomy as Indigenous Peoples of this territory and following the mandates of our people, we are in the process of Liberating Mother Earth on the ranch of Emperatriz.

We want to do this to reestablish Harmony and Balance on our territory.

But the fact of exercising our rights has an enormous cost in our country and since the beginning of this process the number of threats, persecutions, judicial charges, humiliations and the number of injured Nasa people are increasing.

With great sadness and indignation we raise our voice to repudiate the aggressions, threats, marking and death of our community member FIDERSON GUILLERMO PAVI RAMOS who was killed by a bullet shot by the police force.

Guillermo Pavi Ramos was 18 years old. He was the son of Guillermo Paví, an Indigenous leader that was murdered by the FARC in December 2000. As his father, Fiderson also lived in the Pilamo sector of the Resguardo López Adentro. He, as the entire Nasa people, also wanted to liberate Mother Earth, but a bullet murdered him and his aspirations. His nine-month old daughter is now fatherless. Fiderson Guillermo Pavi Ramos was member of the Indigenous Guard and part of the Youth movement. During his free time liked to play soccer.

FACTS

In front of the physical aggression, the community and its authorities has decided to organize a symbolic march from Caloto to the Ranch Emperatriz and have the wake of Guillermo there. Therefore:
