"We are tired of being a Colony of Colombia and of her bad treatment, we are taking back our Land and our Freedom".
The ancestors of the Raizal People voluntarily adhered to Colombia in 1822 ("according to Colombian historians"), thinking it would be a safe relationship; but today, the Raizal People are on their way to extinction under the ethnocidal and genocidal Colombian regime by: (1) Losing more than 50% of their ancestral land titles. (2) The capital island being intentionally overpopulated, today with a density of more than 3.000 inhabitants per km2 causing multiple problems, making it unsustainable environmental, social, economically, giving deaf ears to the pleas by Raizals (3) Being outnumbered by immigrants and becoming a minority on their ancestral Territory. (4) Being discriminated in their own land. (5) Having their Territory ceded to other countries through unconsulted treaties. (6) Having their traditional peace and welfare affected by Colombia's tolerating and encouraging drug trafficking, money laundering and violence through its corrupted forces and its corrupted political system.
We are friends, sympathizers or members of the Raizal People who, are the descendants of the original settlers and present owners of the Archipelago of Saint Andrew, Old Providence and Saint Kathleena.
We manifest our PUBLIC DECLARATION of support for the Raizal People, and PETITION your involvement before the pertinent instances for:
(1) A RAIZAL REFERENDUM for SELF-DETERMINATION to be held in 2015. (2) The inclusion of the Raizal Territory in the List of Non-Governing Territories of the United Nations, to be De-Colonized. (3) To not recognize the claims of Nicaragua over the Raizal Territory. (4)To disregard the Colombian Government's claims due to its colonial management of and for ignoring the Raizal People in the dispute at the ICJ.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
