Human Rights Organizations working with AfroCuban Dissidents and AfroColombian Organizations

A number of organizations provide much needed help to Afrocolombian organizations as they experience genocides organized by paramilitaries and people allied with the Duque government, which is supported by the Cuban plantocracy and their politicians. A number of these human rights orgs also support the US paid AfroCuban dissidents and the white supremacist opposition in Venezuela.  AfroCuban dissidents, such as CIR and Damas en Blanco, and the Venezuelan white supremacists are closely allied with Cuban American narco politicians such as Senator Marco Rubio and Congressman Mario Diaz Balart who are responsible for the success and survival of narco governments such as Colombia, Bolivia, and Honduras. This is all driven from the DC beltway where Cuba and Venezuela are seen through the eyes of the Cold War and where moneys flow via NED, USAID, and other agencies to the human rights organizations as well as the AfroColombian and indigenous organizations. One possibly effective countertactic is to highlight the racialized nature of these conflicts and mobilize people on that basis.

Unas organizaciones de derechos humanos brindan ayuda muy necesaria a organizaciones afrocolombianas que experimentan genocidios organizados por paramilitares y personas aliadas con el gobierno de Duque, que cuenta con el apoyo de la plantocracia cubana y sus políticos. Varias de estas organizaciones de derechos humanos también apoyan a los disidentes afrocubanos pagados por Estados Unidos y tambien a la oposición supremacista blanca en Venezuela. Los disidentes afrocubanos y los supremacistas blancos venezolanos están estrechamente aliados con los narcopolíticos cubano estadounidenses como Marco Rubio y Mario Diaz Balart, responsables del éxito y la supervivencia de gobiernos narcos como Colombia, Bolivia y Honduras. Todo esto es impulsado desde el "beltway" de Washington, DC, donde Cuba y Venezuela se ven a través de los ojos de la Guerra Fría y donde el dinero fluye a través de NED, USAID y otras agencias a las organizaciones de derechos humanos, así como a las organizaciones afrocolombianas e indígenas. Una contratáctica posiblemente eficaz es resaltar la naturaleza racializada de todos estos conflictos y movilizar a la gente sobre esa base.
