EL SALADO [THE SALTED] MASSACRE - HAROLD MANTILLA

HAROLD MANTILLA | The Bafim5 Troops [Marine Corps Infantry Battalion of Fusiliers No. 5], never arrived because it was legal, material and geographically impossible to do it. BECAUSE.

A) Months prior, by specific order from my Superiors, Bafim5 troops [Marine Corps Infantry Battalion of Fusiliers No. 5], had been relocated to other Municipalities threatened by subversives and self-defenses groups (such as in the populations of Córdoba and Zambrano, in Bolívar).

B) To the jurisdiction of El Salado [The Salted] (and the entire area of the Municipality Del Carmen de Bolívar), the military and territorial competition of the Bafim5 was discontinued, taken out, removed; and the military and territorially competition given, taken charge, commended, to the Bacim31 [Contra-guerrillas Battalion of No. 31].

C) In consequence, the jurisdiction of El Salado [The Salted] and the whole area of the Municipality Del Carmen de Bolívar, were under the protection and territorial competition, of the Contra-guerrillas Battalion of No. 31 (Bacim31), and not of the Bafim5.

Domestic Workers Take On Employer at Home

Text :: Baku; Audio :: Maka y la Darling | July 21, 2007 – A 66 year-old Columbian immigrant has taken her former employer — Carmela Meluzio —to federal court for two years and a half worth of back wages. Marina Lopez says that she was employed to clean the Long Island suburban home, do household chores, and provide 24-care to their invalid son, including bathing, feeding, clothing the child. Yet, Meluzio only paid Lopez $2 a hour for her critical care. Meluzio also forced Lopez to sleep in a sewage-filled basement. Lopez had to collect cardboard and wood planks in order to walk across the basement floor.

Lopez's case has stagnated in federal court for four years. But, as a member of Domestic Workers United, she has called upon their help to accelerate her claims.
