LA GUERRA TAMBIÉN SE DESMANTELA EN SURAMÉRICA
Why You Should Care?
As U.S. citizens, we must take responsibility for our country's policies
around the world.
In Colombia and the Andean Region, our taxpayer money is paying to escalate
a civil war, displace hundreds of thousands of civilians, strengthen a
military with a horrible human rights record (and clear ties to
paramilitaries with an even worse human rights record), damage critical
bio-diversity in the Amazon basin, and more!
And while these policies are not even slowing the influx of cocaine and
heroin onto the streets of the U.S., proven drug prevention and treatment
programs are drastically underfunded.
The National Mobilization on Colombia has produced a series of fact sheets
to provide simple, informative explanations for many of the complex issues
relating to US policy toward Colombia. These fact sheets should help clarify
(and spread the word) about why YOU should care how your taxpayer's dollars
are spent in Colombia and the Andean Region. Each fact sheet is available in
HTML (quicker) and PDF (better for printing). Educate your community by
helping us distribute these sheets!
