FCSPP: 2016

Among the most severe attacks against Committee in Solidarity with Political Prisoners (FCSPP) 2016, the following are worthy of note:

Threats and acts of aggression

  • 11 April: threat by the ‘Gaitanista Self Defence Forces of Colombia’ (AGC) neo-paramilitary group in a leaflet that was slid under the door of Nomadesc’s offices in Cali. The message declared that several human rights defenders were military targets, including Martha Giraldo, the coordinator of the National Movement of Victims of State Crimes (MOVICE) Valle del Cauca Chapter; and Walter Agredo, member of the Committee for Solidarity with Political Prisoners (FCSPP).[1]
