We await your deeds Mr. President

Written by

This week that comes to its end leaves a bitter taste in the ranks of the FARC-EP; we are close to celebrating 53 years of our foundation in Marquetalia, and all our members, commanders and base combatants, are sure that this will be the last commemoration in arms of the heroic uprising of Manuel Marulanda Vélez and his men and women in 1964.

On April 26, 1937 during the Spanish civil war, the town of Gernika, a republican stronghold that maintained strong resistance against the fascist regime of Francisco Franco, received a severe bombing attack perpetrated by the Spanish nationalist government and its allies: Nazi Germany ruled by Adolf Hitler and Fascist Italy ruled by Benito Mussolini.

I have just learned, with surprise, the tweet of the Senate’s President, Mauricio Lizcano, in which he shares a statement on the announced admission of members of the FARC-EP and ELN to the elliptical hall of the National Congress on occasion of the National Peace Congress.

Tax reform and manipulators

Written by

As if it was an April fools´ joke, the National Government sanctioned a new tax reform last December 28, after an intense controversy, leaving in the air the feeling that none, not even the Ministry of Finance that had presented it, was fully satisfied with it. The criticisms sprang from all sectors, although in the end the majority seemed to conclude that it was a necessary evil, to which we must be resigned to in any chase. Another toad that the country will have to swallow[1].

No other man in history has ever battled so much for the interests of mankind. Until the last moments of his life, Fidel serenely warned of the dangers that beset everyone on account of the greed of big capital.

The unfortunate presence of Kfir planes on the day of the signing of the Final Havana Agreement has already been widely discussed and commented.

Once again an agrarian strike is on the news.

Moderating language

Written by

Dear compatriots:

With great satisfaction, we have recently known and read the open letter signed by you, in which with great civil courage and patriot responsibility, you make a call to moderate the language used in the debate about the possibility of reaching peace agreements with both the FARC-EP and the ELN.
