From CNT of Huesca we strongly condemn the murder of the comrade Sergio Lizcano, experienced miner, by the army. We send our condolences to the family and their colleagues.
These acts of barbarism do not silence us, nor make us go back. Our support and solidarity in front of such injustice crosses borders and becomes into international support. We demand justice, that it will be investigated and purged responsibilities, both of the material and intellectual authors, and the political responsibility.
Enough of the murders of workers, social leaders and enough of the continuous human rights crimes and impunity.
We want to publicly accuse the murder of the comrade and the continuous attacks suffered by the Colombian working class, where trade union and social leaders are assassinated every year.
We denounce this habitual practice of the army at the service of the transnational interests with the complicity of the state as the executing arm of the repression and violence, either officially or through paramilitary groups.
These foreign companies have spent years looting the territory’s resources and mistreating the people, in this case (Minesa) is one of several Transnationals (Arabian, Canadian…) who exploit gold mining in the place, which directly or indirectly has led to the murder of our colleague. There are many other examples of how the interests in oil, energy or transnational companies from all kinds have caused forced displacement, disappearances and murders in the places where they settle.
May the bosses never forget that the producer of wealth is the working class. The only one capable of producing and controlling the entire production gear. As much as they repress us and hit hard, we know that our fight is fair, for our murdered comrade not a minute of silence, a lifetime of struggle.
¡¡¡LONG LIVE TO THE INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY AND LONG LIVE THE STRUGGLE OF THE WORKING CLASS!!
