The Ministry of the Interior rejects the reprehensible acts of violence against the Awá Indigenous People of the Cabildo Mayor, of Ricaurte-Camawari in the indigenous reservation  Palmar Imbi, Department of Nariño.

We sympathize with the family of indigenous leaders Héctor Ramiro García and his son Arturo García, as well as the other indigenous people who were injured.

It has been ordered, for the next few days, to advance a visit to the municipality of Ricaurte, for a meeting with the Reservation and the Camawari Organization, in conjunction with the other authorities, in order to generate coordinated actions and address the security of the leaders of the Awá people; Similarly, advance in the clarification of the facts. We have asked the National Protection Unit to analyze and define a collective protection strategy.
