REFERENCE TO GENERIC UNIT (Periodica): Margen izquierda : 43., p. 10-11. - Bogota, 1989.

LANGUAGE: SPA

ABSTRACT: Talking about the US military policy, more and more often is mentioned the term "low intensity conflict". It refers concretely to a new strategic pattern developed after the losed war in Vietnam. This was defined by the president Reagan as the new military doctrine of the United States. In the case of Colombia, the writer thinks, the goal is to maintain the actual government. According to this, the low intensity conflict is pointed against the social and political forces, which aim to change the country's policy.

Grupos paramilitares y contrainsurgencia / Ledezma, Roberto A.

REFERENCE TO GENERIC UNIT (Periodica): Margen izquierda : 39., p. 23-26. - Bogota, 1989.

LANGUAGE: SPA

ABSTRACT: After 60 years the United States changed its global strategy of warfare. This change was a result of the experiences gained in the war against the liberation movements, especially in the periode after the second world war, in which the most notable conflict was fought in Vietnam. Since then the Northamericans realized that the traditional strategy to fight the revolutionary movements on the battel field and to win them with purely military means, would not be enough, and that it was necessary to change the whole warfare strategy. It was seen as necessary to combine two elements: the military means and the reformist demagogy. This lead to the preventive counterrevolution, known as the national security doctrine.

ABSTRACT: Since 1981 the military chiefs started to inform the peasents in Guatemala of the necessity to organize civil patrols to fight against the gerrilla movement. The armed forces provided arms for the the s.c. civil self-defence patrols. At the end of 1982 the number of these patrols was estimated on 300.000 men, in 1984 the numbers reached 900.000 men.America's Watch has stated that "the PAC - civil selfdefense patrols of Guatemala, are the widest af all models of military control with counterinsurgency goals in the whole world".The patrols also destroy the traditional self-governments of the indigenous communities, the cultural traditions are replaced by military rites.

4. The "drug war" in Colombia, 1990
 

BIBLIOGRAPHIC LEVEL: monograph

The "drug war" in Colombia : the neglected tragedy of political violence / ; Americas Watch, 138 p.. - New York : Americas Watch Committee, 1990.

ISBN 0-929692-48-9

LANGUAGE: ENG

ABSTRACT: For the past decade, Colombia has been rocked by political violence that claims thousands of lives every year.Both the Colombian government and the Bush administration have oversimplified the causes of the violence, linking it too readily to drug traffickers and underplaying the role of the military and paramilitary groups.While successive Colombian presidents have made good faith efforts to curb the killing, they failed to acknowledge the relationship between senior military officers, paramilitary groups and the drug traffickers. As a result, those guilty of violent abuses routinely escape prosecution or punishment.

* immunitet = immunity = koskemattomuus
* paramilitära styrkor = paramilitary forces = puolisotilaalliset joukot

5. The killings in Colombia, 1989
 

BIBLIOGRAPHIC LEVEL: monograph

The killings in Colombia / ; Americas Watch, 118 p.. - New York : Americas Watch Committee, 1989.

ISBN 0-929692-18-7

LANGUAGE: ENG

ABSTRACT: In the fifth report on Colombia, Americas Watch charges that paramilitary groups financed,directed and trained by drug dealers are responsible for most of the political assassinations and massacres in 1987 and 1988.Deat squad members are hired to execute leftist politicans, trade union leaders and peasant active in politics or union struggle.Americas Watch is very critical of the persistent and inaccurate notion of the so-called "narco-gerrilla" which has shaped United States policy toward Colombia.While Washington sees obvious elements of collaboraton between the drug dealers and the gerrillas, the United States make no allusion to the link between the drug dealers and political repression.

6. The Central-Americanization of Colombia, 1986
 

BIBLIOGRAPHIC LEVEL: monograph

The Central-Americanization of Colombia : human rights and the peace process / ; Americas Watch, 147 p.. - New York : Americas Watch Committee, 1986.

LANGUAGE: ENG

ABSTRACT: This report examines the peace process, the forces that have undermined it, and its relationship to human rights violations in Colombia during the past three years (1983-1986).Many Colombians believe that the peace process, whatever its limitations, defused tensions that were leading the country toward civil war.The evidence we have gathered suggests that human rights abuses in Colombia could mount disastrously unless the process Betancur started is revived and taken several steps further.Colombia needs civilian control of the military, meaningful punishment for human rights violations, an authentic political opening to disenfranchised sectors and dissident groups, and openness to economic reform.Without such progress, incidents like the confrontation at the Palace pf Justice will come to be seen as only the prelude to catastrophe.

INDEX WORDS:

* brott mot mänskliga rättigheter = human rights violations = ihmisoikeusloukkaukset

7. The more things change..., 1989
 

BIBLIOGRAPHIC LEVEL: monograph

The more things change... : human rights in Haiti / ; Americas Watch, 126 p.. - New York : Americas watch Committee, 1989.

ISBN 0-929692-14-4

LANGUAGE: ENG

ABSTRACT: The current military government of Lt.General Prosper Avril, while vowing to hold elections and promote human rights, has continued the abusive practices of the previous military-dominated governments that have ruled Haiti since the fall of the Duvalier dictatorship.The persistence of serious human rights violations suggests an ongoing refusal by the military to relinquish power to an elected civilian government. The most frequent victims of military and paramilitary violence are peasant organizations, trade unions and the progressive church.Demostrations and outspoken critics are also regularly targeted.The Avril government has not prosecuted a single act of political violence.Further, the US embassy in Port-Au-Prince has wasted its considerable moral influence by remaining largely silent in the face of ongoing abuses.

* brott mot mänskliga rättigheter = human rights violations = ihmisoikeusloukkaukset
* politiskt våld = political violence = poliittinen väkivalta

8. Civil patrols of Guatemala, 1986
 

BIBLIOGRAPHIC LEVEL: monograph

Civil patrols of Guatemala / ; Americas Watch, 105 p.. - New York : Americas Watch Committee, 1986.

ISBN 0-938579-24-X

LANGUAGE: ENG

ABSTRACT: For more than thirty years, Guatemala's human rights conditions have been among the worst in the hemisphere.Peasants' attempts to improve their economic situation, students' calls for democracy, labor unions' efforts to achieve a decent wage, new political parties' initiatives and old parties dissent, have all met with a remarkable level ovf repression even in the absence of an active guerrilla threat.In the early 1980s, a resurgence of both peaceful protest and guerrilla activity led the army to reorganize and intensify its counterinsurgency effort.Today the Guatemalan civil patrol system, called PAC, is the most extensive counterinsurgency model of its kind in the world. PAC is designed for two purposes: to augment the army's military strength and intelligence in areas of conflict, and more important, to provide vigilance and control of the local population, preventing any form of local organization.
