The venezuelan Army patrol along the ELN in the border of Zulia Colombia



To the astonishment of the inhabitants of the municipality Catatumbo, state of Zulia, which makes limit at the border with Colombia, officials of the Armed Forces Bolivarian National are running patrols together with the National Liberation Army. This happens since the guerrillas came to the municipality to try to take to The Stubble, bloodthirsty paramilitary group, the control of the territory.

Catatumbo is a municipality of the 21 that has the Zulia state and is located to the south, being its capital the town of Found; the two parishes that divide it are: Found and Udón Perez.

Two things characterize the Catatumbo, their forests, some dry and others very wet, so that the structure of your soil is conducive to the creation of swamps. The other thing one of the natural phenomena known worldwide, called the Lightning of the Catatumbo, which is actually a series of lightning strikes, flooding the sky to the height of the south of the Maracaibo Lake basin and the lower basin of the river Catatumbo. Its beauty is indescribable. The Space Agency of the united States (NASA) described the Catatumbo as the World Capital of Lightning, after studies by american universities Maryland and Alabama, in addition to Brazil. They determined that each year occur there some 297 thunderstorms and dropped about 1.6 million rays annually.

But in that place of beauty and natural magic also came the phenomenon of paramilitarism and the guerrillas. They are vying for control of the venezuelan territory, not only by the powerful industry of smuggling, but by the increasingly influential drug trafficking.

According to the sectors in which to achieve to be installed every group, they have become the authority in the area. The National Armed Force of venezuela is only a spectator and in some cases collaborator, mainly for the guerrillas which in turn is a key partner for the drug traffickers for the establishment and use of routes to move drugs from Colombia.

Some years ago, the National Liberation Army (ELN) was the sowing of anti-personnel mines sectors of The Catatumbo of venezuela, that resulted in the death of a venezuelan military and left the other without legs.

In June of 2019 the guerrillas gathered the inhabitants, gave them three minutes to vacate and appropriated fifteen farms, and expelling oil palm producers in the sector Caño Motilón and Spout 14. A few days ago came the paramilitary Los Rastrojos, did the same in the sector, The Hangover, met the producers and they ordered a curfew and hours after he started the lead closed between guerrillas and paramilitaries.

The excuse of the bolivarian revolution for years is “people and Armed forces”, “people in arms” and other slogans, but in reality, each day is more difficult for the National Armed forces to comply with their constitutional duties.

It is as well as before this recent situation of The Stubble trying to be imposed by force in The Catatumbo, officials of the National Command Antiextorsión and Sequestration (CONAS), located in the facilities of the Group San Simon in Santa Barbara del Zulia, are acting in conjunction with the ELN. “This is happening since the beginning of the raid of the guerilla group The industry a Little, erasing, beating and humiliating to producers and farmers in this sector,” reveals a producer in the area.

“On the day Thursday 06 of February, it was, like, 4 in the afternoon, when they passed the CONAS asking the farmers by paramilitaries. They don’t want to understand that the producers have nothing to do with the conflict between groups, we are working our land”.

“On Monday, February 10, 2020, the Battalion of Special Forces of the Army, which is located in the Guayabo Km 52, pretended to go out to the streets of The village of el Guayabo, supposedly to fight the irregular, saying that met the superior orders of General Paul Joseph Bravo Parra, to the surprise of the villagers were patrolling together the venezuelan Army with the ELN”.

Asked several people in the area, who say the military and the guerrillas warn the settlers that have phones stuck. “They threaten that care happens we complain, or even talk with the press and less with you, that they have everything under control”.

A producer reveals that “the Population of The Gallinazo Km 40, just 12 km from the Battalion of Special Forces of the Army, about three weeks ago the guerrillos of the ELN took to the streets, they called the inhabitants to a meeting and notified q they were the new authority in the area”.

That explains the fact that from that date the guerrillas of the ELN are walking in uniform, wearing bracelets of your organization, and carrying weapons of war. And do so quietly violating our territory.

You know that the Commander of the Special Forces of the Army, that is to say the General Bravo Parra, who has not bothered to irregular forces foreign violate venezuelan territory. You have to wonder if that general, as well as the Military High Command, know what it really is treason to the fatherland.

“Now begins the nightmare of the agricultural producers with Armed Force, because they beat the workers and to get them arrested, with false positives, to justify its complicity and guilt,” he said finally the owner of a farm of the area.

The wages of workers earning more than three wages (up to 15,000 pesos) minimum decreased in a year, going from 9.38 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 to 6.98 million in the same period last year, i.e. a decrease of 2.4 million people, according to the National Survey of Occupation and Employment (ENOE), Inegi.

During the first quarter of last year, the Rate of Critical Conditions of Occupation stood at 17.9% of the employed population, for the second quarter this amounted to 19% and, for the third, 19.5%; at the close of the year it is placed in 19.4%, according to figures from the ENOE.

The number of people with formal employment who earns less than three minimum wages rebounded in the past year, going from 33.7 million to 38.7 million, that is to say, 5 million more in the lower segment of income.

That way, the participation of this groupand / or spent 62.2% of the employed population at the close of 2018 to 69.5% at the end of the last year.

According to the Inegi, the percentage of the population that has the need and availability of bid more work time than your current occupation will demand, came to 7.8% in the fourth quarter of 2019.

This is the highest figure since the second quarter of 2016. In this way, the number of subocupados amounted to 4.3 million people by the end of last year, 16.8% more than those reported in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Among the entities with the greatest subocupación are Oaxaca, with a rate of 15.1% of its population; Colima, 14.3%; Tabasco, 13.7%; Zacatecas, 13%; Baja California Sur, 12.8%; Guanajuato, 12.7%, and Nayarit, 12.6%. The states with the lowest level were Querétaro, 2%; Aguascalientes, 2.2%; Baja California, 2.3%, and Morelos, 2.8%.

These problems of low wages and the subocupación tend to be expanded due to the population employed in the informal sector does not decrease, on the contrary increases slowly.

The problem of the critical conditions of employment are pronfundiza if we analyze the population by level of income; the workers who earn less are the same that have longer working hours.

By 2019, 30% of those working days 49 to 56 hours per week perceive a maximum of two minimum wages per month (6,160 pesos) and are also 29% of the working days exceed 56 hours per week.

Another labour indicators that showed a decline in material and labour during this period was the Rate of Partial employment and Unemployment, that includes all mexicans, or are unemployed or are employed partially. That is to say, who do not have jobs or who have certain occupations, non-formal, which add up to less than 15 hours of work per week.

The labor informality, one of the issues most important market for mexican labor, showed an improvement in the last ten years. The concentrate of informal workers shrank from 60% at the end of 2009 to 56.2% at the end of 2019.

The majority of informal workers do not have social security systems, tax, employee benefits, contracts established and may not even have access to health institutions.

Even with the advancement in the reduction of informality in Mexico still 56 out of every 100 workers, more than half, is under these conditions.

The problem is intensified for workers with low levels of income. By ejemplo, during the 2019 60% of workers who perceived a maximum of two minimum salaries per month do not have any social benefit. That proportion was 48% six years ago.
