Nasa Indians stormed the outpost and removed the soldiers.

Forced Eviction, Colombia

For five decades, the traditional territory of Colombia’s indigenous Nasa people has also been a site of constant crossfire between the Colombian Army and rebel guerrilla group Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC)32. On July 17, 2012, hundreds of fed-up Nasa armed themselves with wooden sticks and stormed the local army outpost, forcibly relieving six soldiers from duty.
