Indigenous Colombians in protest over abuse

Colombia's Nasa indigenous movement has always maintained a policy of non-violent protest. This, despite claiming that their lands have been stolen and their people killed by the military.

Al Jazeera's Monica Villamizar reports on the group that has mobilised thousands.

Ruben, you know I have alway been your fan since joining this site. I told you, you have a indian heart. But come on bro. Dude you a great guy but you loosing me compai. Keisha is right. I wrote a email to the orignal post for support for thea amazon indians, But I just didnt post or say it untill now. And know I see what you wrote in the below. You should not say that we dont support indians. I am indian regardless of how much admxiture people think I have or dont have. I supput all my indian brother from alaska down to the teirra del fuego. Ofcourse as a taino I am going to have a stronger conection to caribs, gurafina, kurafina, lokonos etc etc. Just because there territorie, language, culture, history etc etc is alot closer to taino. So am a pain in the ass just cause I want to learn more. Your a good man. I apprectiate you seeking knowlege and voluntiring time to indians matters. I read a few of your post. Doing a good thing does not need to be flaunted

I mean I even made a excuse for you with the text not translating well.I know this sometimes is the problem with me and I am fluent in english. But I just happend to be the worst writter.

See?! That's what I'm talking about Ruben. We don't support Indigenous People of the Amazon? Just because people aren't talking about it, or waving around how many letters they wrote, doesn't mean they don't care. I know for a fact that there are people on here who have worked personally with Indigenous people from all over the world. You don't know the reasons why or why not people don't respond. This is the first time I'm seeing this video.

Anyway, a good thing to do would be to research the companies behind this (I'm betting there's at least one U.S. company behind this.)

And, what is ICN's united position on this issue? I would like to do a write-up on my blog. Is it outrage? Are we standing in solidarity with the Indigenous Columbians?

There lands are being stolen. Correction it started in 1492.

The sad part is that I am sure that half of the police killing these indians are indians too. Some may or may not even know of there ancestrory. We all know that this is not only possible but very probable.
