The Judgment of the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal (PPT) on Political Genocide, Impunity and Crimes Against Peace in Colombia was issued on June 17, 2021 in Bogota.

The PPT panel of judges, composed by Raúl Vera, Andrés Barreda, Lottie Cunningham, Esperanza Martínez, Graciela Daleo, Daniel Feierstein, Luis Moita, Antoni Pigrau Solé, Mireille Fanon, Michel Forst, Philippe Texier, Luciana Castellina and Luigi Ferrajoli, recognized the Colombian State guilty of the crime of genocide, carried out during the decades of the twentieth century and with greater atrocity during the last nineteen governments, with a central role assumed by the governments chaired by Álvaro Uribe Vélez (years 2002 – 2010).

The event of the general strike and its ferocious repression is the most precise comment on the current situation and on the urgency of this opinion, which is intended to be a contribution and an appeal first of all to the Commission for truth and a challenge to the international public opinion.
