Colombia. A rising Latin American economy. Dedicated to democratic prosperity and regional leadership. A nation undergoing evolution in its decade of strong economic performance.

The nation’s FDI inflow presently sits at around fifteen point eight billion dollars and these relationships provide ever-enhanced opportunities for its economic growth.

I had never seen so many lies together. Colombia is a country ruled by a regime of extreme right, a mafia with democracy costume country. The dominant political and economic class is associated with drug trafficking, and in addition to the repressive forces of the state, there are paramilitary groups that have been paid by the economic power to massacre and displace millions of peasants to strip them of their land and use it for big business (large oil palm plantations, oil, coal and many other resources). Besides that, the same paramilitary groups under orders of economic power, pursue and kill members and leaders of any opposition political force. They also massacred and displaced peasants to open place US corporations such as Chiquita Brand, large banana growing company. These groups massacring of the most atrocious ways that nobody ever has seen: dismember people alive with chainsaws, play football with severed heads, and they use all kinds of atrocious torture against political dissidents, leftists, poor and peasants. Why the reality of Colombia is not shown in this video? Clearly, those who make this video are big businessmen, the same that are authors of all the barbarity I'm telling.
