Colombia – Two Steps Forward For Peace

Juan Manuel Santos has recently been re-elected as president, on a platform of strengthening the peace process through the talks with FARC in Havana. His victory was against the Uribist ultra right wing candidate whose plan was to end the talks and escalate the war and repression. This is an important victory and a clear indication of the popular will.

Even more important was the rejection by Congress of a government proposal that Colombia should join NATO. The existence of the proposal shows that NATO wants to convert Colombia to the Israel of Latin America using US bases there to threaten and intimidate all Latin American governments who are breaking away from neoliberalism and asserting their independence from the US, with dramatic benefits to their people.

Meanwhile many countries and Amnesty international have warned about violence to tourists in the USA. RAMPANT CAPITALISM.

@theworkerorguk Here is the Labour party election leaflet from the 1979 June EEC election. The very first one. I knew the candidate in passing who advised me in 1982 when I was just 18 the sooner we are out the EEC the better. 34 years later I voted Leave
