FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE CAMPESINOS

¡NO MAS! NO MORE! STOP THE DIRTY WAR!
In Colombia, paramilitary butchers, operating in
collusion with the US/Canada government-and
corporate-backed Colombian Army and National Police,
selectively murder and massacre unarmed civilians
with impunity. See URL's below for more info.
FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE CAMPESINOS

First they came for the campesinos
and I did not speak out ––
because I was not a peasant farmer.

Then they came for the Afro-Colombian
and Indigenous leaders
and I did not speak out ––
because I was not an Afro-Colombian
or Indigenous leader.

Then they came for the human rights defenders
and I did not speak out ––
because I was not a human rights defender.

Then they came for the journalists,
the non-government organization leaders,
the Marxist and social democrat intellectuals,
the opposing politicians,
the student activists,
the anarchists,
the professors on the left,
the union leaders,
the union members,
the public school teachers,
the judicial officials,
and I did not speak out ––
because I was not a journalist, a non-government
organization leader, a Marxist or social democrat
intellectual, an opposing politician, a student
activist, a anarchist, a professor on the left, a union
leader, a union member, a public school teacher or a
judicial official.

Then the paramilitary butchers,
operating in collusion with the US/Canada
government-and corporate-backed
Colombian Army and National Police, came for me.
And I remembered my silence,
as I realized in horror,
THERE WAS NO ONE LEFT TO SPEAK OUT !
