The comrades of the Party, including a pregnant one, were first subdued, outraged, forces into the back of our headquarters and then intimidated by the criminals, to deliver their belongings, which were stolen.
Curiously until now no office of any other traditional political parties in Quibdó had suffered any harassment like the one we suffered.
The national campaign of intimidation carried out by Clan del Golfo against our FARC party under the open threat, made public from Cali, of "destroying the headquarters of the FARC party" seems to have begun to be operative in Quibdó.
We declare to the State security agencies, to the Government of President Juan Manuel Santos, to the United Nations Organization, the guarantor of the reincorporation into political life of former guerrillas of the extinct FARC-EP and today militants of the New Political Party, People’s Alternative Revolutionary Force-FARC; that the safeguard of the lives of our militants, both in Quibdó and in the entire Department of Chocó, is in their hands.
Since we are operating in legal political life, 36 former guerrillas have been killed: will they continue to allow these systematic murders by the enemies of the peace process and their implementation to continue happening?
In the same way we emphasize: they have the authority and duty to provide all the security guarantees for the development of the political action of the New Political Party FARC within the framework of the current parliamentary electoral campaign.
We make manifest our unwavering commitment to continue working for the pacification of the Department of Chocó in the framework of peace building processes, and we advocate that all the armed actors of the conflict in force today; ELN and Clan del Golfo, are able to achieve the understanding required to make the dream of a complete peace a reality.
We call on the UN to declare and demand from the Colombian State the fulfillment of what was agreed in the Peace Agreement signed by JM Santos and the FARC-EP, which made it possible to stop a 53-year war and begin building a stable and lasting peace.
Likewise, we demand that security and appropriate protection measures be provided to our premises and our workers; so to have guaranteed the real participation in the development of political activities without any kind of fears.
