A Man of Principle
(Condores no mueren todos los dias)

by Francisco NORDEN

Les Condors ne meurent pas tous les jours

In Colombia, from the second half of the 19th Century, the two traditional political parties, Liberals and Conservatives, have fought each other in a series of civil wars that have shed the country’s blood for almost a century. The last of them is known as the “The Violence”. It began with the assassination of a popular politician on 9 April 1948. This day opened up years of darkness during which political killers played a leading role. They are called the “Pajaros” (birds), the most notorious being León María Lozano dubbed “the Condor”. A henchman of the Conservative party, this Catholic fanatic ravaged by asthma organised the systematic elimination of Liberals in his region.
