It is sad but understandable, for reasons that are best illustrated by what happened to Raul Reyes when he made the mistake of using a satellite phone (or maybe even just a cellphone), that the FARC cannot have a website, and a translator.
Therefore Machetera brings you the FARC’s latest communique, which mentions near the end that Alvaro Uribe told Rafael Correa his army took 11 people back to Colombia with them from the FARC camp they destroyed in Ecuador.
Fighters + Lovers, the Danish group mentioned in the communique, incidentally was absolved by a Danish court of the charges that it had violated Denmark’s anti-terrorism law by donating funds from the sale of t-shirts to the FARC and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), which proves that Denmark has not become totally rotten after all. Just 90%. But it would be hard or maybe even impossible to find any mention of that absolution anywhere in the English language press.
