The High Command of the Block Iv?n R?os, which operates in the northwest of the country, has already revealed what truly happened on September 16 on the road between Puerto Libertador and Tierradentro. Our comrades adequately explain the facts and also released the military report of the ambush against a unit of the National Police.
Exclusive interview for www.pazfarc-ep.org
"Many things will have to change in Colombia before we can consider this chapter closed"
Timole?n Jim?nez, comandante of the FARC-EP, speaks of the position of the insurgency on the issue of victims of the conflict, the relationship with ELN and the US war against "terrorism" and, of course, on the future of the peace process: "the issue of the abandonment of arms and bilateral ceasefire will not be easy to resolve", he says.
We had already made some written comments on the discourse of President Santos, which he showed once again in his recent inauguration. We have also pointed out the total alignment of the mainstream media with the ruling class. The two, including 'Center Uribe' (Centro Democrático, NT), get greatly upset when we do not express what they want to hear from us.
OSCAR IV?N ZULUAGA
Candidate for the Presidency of the Republic
Regarding the last unilateral truce declared jointly by the FARC-EP and ELN, on occasion of the first round of the electoral contest for presidency, we knew about some passionate statements of yours, according to which you categorically rejected our attitude, saying that for a few days, we were going to stop committing abhorrent crimes such as using children as bomb-couriers to hit military forces.
War or Peace (Part II)
In this second chapter, comandante Timole?n says that the two parties that are sitting at the Table represent two completely different viewpoint of the country and the world. But, he states, this shouldn't produce any insurmountable hate. All the contrary, it should produce a fruitful and sound discussion, which could lead us to the construction of a better country.
The FARC-EP and the ELN have repeatedly stressed the need to convene a bilateral ceasefire, to channel the peace talks towards an effective and early reconciliation among Colombians.
Regarding the most recent release of the National Secretariat of the FARC-EP and the facts behind it, many things have been said. Although we always learn about our actions through the mass media, universal champions of distortion and hoax, we are still quite impressed by the news about the new malicious avalanche against us.
What they are after with eavesdropping
The successive scandals regarding the interception of telephones, emails and other forms of communication used today, want, among other things, to build the idea in the public mind that everything is controlled by power. Somehow, though many people feel their privacy is being violated and express their outrage, they also get adapted to the idea that it is something inexorable and that it is useless to fight against.
The issue of eavesdropping and what derives from it, can be used for anything. Here we have an example from a source of high credibility:
Joint Communiqué of the Comandantes of FARC-EP and ELN: Official Paramilitarism?
The long experience of contacts and imeetings, in order to realize humanitarian actions or peace talks between government and insurgency, teaches us that when they are used by the State to carry out intelligence or military operations, they not only undermine confidence in the seriousness of the interlocutor, but also lead to failure of the purposes pursued by the approximations and meetings.
