Around 3:00 p.m., the neighborhoods of El Cabuyo and La Primavera were forced to participate in rallies organized by paramilitaries who mobilized near their areas.

When the criminals were in the La Primavera neighborhood, the activists demanded respect from the civilian population and managed to expel them from the territory with the help of indigenous guards.

Shortly after, however, the armed groups returned with reinforcements and began shooting at authorities and community leaders, including Camayo.

Among the criminals who attacked was “El Paisa”, who previously murdered the environmentalist Breiner Cucuñame and Guillermo Chicame, who was a member of the indigenous guard in the Las Delicias neighborhood.

Although the Colombian State and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) signed a Peace Agreement in 2016, at least 1,295 social leaders have been assassinated in the last six years.

To counteract the increase in violence in northern Cauca, the indigenous communities urged the State to expand its presence in the area and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) to support pro-peace strategies.
