Servindi [es] published Bulletin N°3/2012 [es] by the National Indigenous Organization of Colombia (ONIC) [es], where they report that the organization will go to the International Criminal Court to denounce that numerous Indigenous people -including several children- are dying of malnutrition or as victims of anti-personnel mines due to the conflict between legal and illegal groups in their territories.


The report also points out that during the first nine months of this year 78 indigenous people have been killed, while another 47 have received death threats and more than 11,000 have been displaced.
