More than news or something to see with the Colombian actuality, the dead of the 11 deputies of Valle del Cauca who lost their lives after five years in the condition of kidnapped by the armed group FARC, became a note of hopeless for everyone. The International Community joined the condemnation of such act by organizations like the United Nations, the American States Organization, International Amnisty, the European Community and the Vatican. The delay in giving back the corps of the deputies to their relatives put in evidence the harship of the situation in which the human being is manipulated without feelings as a value sharing share and out of the respect for rights and human dignity.
Kidnapping – coming from anyone -, is a violation of the 1, 3, 5 and 9th articules of the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights:
All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.
The consequences of kidnapping are burden from any perspective:
1. The kidnapped lives an undescriptible distress that psychologists call “suspended dead” and tha affects also the relatives and friends of the victim, becoming all of them victims themselves of such act that is a crime from any point of view.
2. It creates an atmosphere of social insecurity, distrust and public paranodia and the feelling of impotence before the manipulation of the kidnappers willing to get their goals at any cost.
3. It becomes a weapon of war and in that sense it is completely illegal because is manipulating the human dignity and only creates hate, revengeful spirit and more chaos.
Nothing good comes from it!
It is just barbaric, inhuman and hopeless!
Stop to manipulate the human being making of him a war weapon!
