What if you were on trial and you couldn’t choose your own lawyer or call witnesses in your own defense?

Patriots not Terrorists!
Two cases are going on right now in Washington, D.C. where this is the case. The trial of Ricardo Palmera (Simon Trinidad), and Anayibe Rojas Valderrama (Sonia). Both are Colombian citizens and members of the FARC, an organization that has been fighting for 40 years against the most violent repressive regime in Latin America.

Come and hear the witness who was not allowed to testify.

Imelda Daza Cotes was an activist and a member of the Patriotic Union (UP) in Colombia. The UP was a leftist third party created through peace accords. Four thousand UP members, candidates, and elected officials, were assassinated by the right-wing government supported military forces. Daza Cotes fled Colombia to protect her life. She will speak about the US intervention in Plan Colombia, the repression of the Colombian government, and the injustice of Palemera’s and Anayibe Rojas Valderrama’s cases.
