THE TRUTH ABOUT US POLICY IN COLOMBIA :
A Firsthand Account

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.

When: 7:00 PM Thursday, February 15

Where: 522 Valencia Street , 3rd Floor Auditorium
