Angelly Pernía says that she does not believe in justice, and it is not for less after what she lived. As part of a student protest, she was attacked by a group of seven National Guard officials who identified her as student leader: “The first blow I felt was with the helmet on the back of my neck, then I knelt on the floor and they hit me in the kidneys, belly and they spit on me.” They moved her to the Governors’ Residence, where the aggression within the patrol continued. The governor and his wife were there and with the few remaining strength of the beating, Angelly shouted to get his attention: “To shut me up they spray me with chlorine and with gasoline, and one of the officials, dead with laughter, told me that I was going to be arrested for my fault. “They transferred her to the Politáchira barracks and put her in a punishment cell. Despite having an intense uterine bleeding, due to the beating, she was prevented from changing her clothes or even wearing a pad. In the midst of irregularities, she was sentenced to 15 years in prison, as she was planted with a bag of Cavim explosives. The judge, however, agreed to transfer her to a hospital because of the bleeding. They had to operate her because, among other things, she had an ovary torn by the blows she suffered. Then they gave her a precautionary measure. The brave story of this young woman is part of our #MeCuadroConEllas campaign.
