Fredy Julian Conda Dagua

On August 23, Fredy Julian  of the Nasa community was killed in a clash with Colombian armed forces.

The forces concerned included the Colombian military, Mobile Anti-Disturbance Squadron (Escuadrón Móvil Antidisturbios, ESMAD), and police. Land disputes between the Nasa and inhabitants of those lands prompted landowners to call the Colombian armed forces so they can dislodge the indigenous who are reclaiming their ancestral lands.

The use of lethal force against unarmed civilians resulted in Fredy being shot in the head by a stray bullet. At first he was in a coma but after being transported to Cali, doctors were forced to disconnect him and he died a few days later. He was 24 years old.
