This is the real story about Clara Rojas. She is one of the many emblematic examples of how the mainstream media have tried to convince Colombia and the world that the guerrilla fighters of the FARC-EP are insensitive monsters.
Cristian and his family lived in the village of Costa Rica, located in the town of San Juan de Arama, Meta department (Colombia). He spent his childhood there until he was 12 years old.
In the year 2000, in the town of El Castillo, Meta department, there was a raid of paramilitaries under command of Martin Llanos, accompanied and supported directly by the 21st Battalion "Vargas" located in Granada (Meta).
Countless atrocities and injustices are committed by the Colombian authorities against the civilian population. Here are a few reported cases.

We know that these are stories that happen every day against the guerrilla fighters of the FARC-EP and their families, but we want to denounce this publicly.
Seven years ago, we had a baby girl. When we had to define her situation, we decided to send her to a couple, relatives of ours, so they could take care of her. She has received all the care and attention she needs, and also the love she can't receive from us directly, because of the distance.

Communique to Public Opinion
The members of the first delegation of victims who participated in this first meeting, express:
Our commander-in-chief, Timole?n Jim?nez, published an article entitled: ?To win this war, we should make peace?. In the last two paragraphs, he refers to an issue that has received a lot of attention at a national, but also at an international level: the unfortunate death of a two-year-old child in Miranda, Cauca. We reproduce these paragraphs, because we think it is important for people to get aware of the real dimension of the media war that is waged against us.
The Column "Mariscal Antonio Jos? de Sucre" reports:
On August 2, 2014, three explosive charges were fired against facilities of the battalion "Battle of Boyac?" in the city of Pasto, where the headquarters of the 23rd Brigade, attached to the Task Force Pegaso, operate. Eight soldiers died and 16 more were injured; these results were concealed from public opinion.
Iv?n Cepeda, candidate for senate of the Polo Democr?tico Alternativo, and the group of lawyers "Jos? Alvear Restrepo" received an e-mail with the subject: "Retire from politics or you will die, terrorists!"
The government military offensive on the countryside and in cities is spreading the armed conflict all over the country. The permanent use of civilians as a shield by the public forces, makes that innocent citizens are affected in this confrontation.
