Victimas del desplazamiento exigen que se les de la palabra
IPS () Campesinos desplazados exigen la palabra
La discusión del proyecto de Ley de Víctimas y Restitución de Tierras avanza en el parlamento de Colombia con amplio registro mediático y entusiastas declaraciones gubernamentales, pero sin que sean atendidos los reclamos de las propias víctimas, los campesinos despojados.

Ante la indiferencia de los grandes medios de comunicación, representantes de ocho organizaciones de campesinos desplazados de sus hogares y tierras entregaron a cada uno de los integrantes de la Comisión Primera del Senado, que trata la iniciativa, un documento en el que expresan sus dudas y lo que entienden falencias del texto.

Hasta ahora "no fuimos consultados sobre el texto del proyecto", se quejó ante IPS Orlando Burgos, presidente de la Mesa Nacional de Fortalecimiento de Organizaciones de Población Desplazada (MNFOPD). ver>>

 

Los biocombustibles se convierten en un arma de presión en la guerra colombiana contra los narcotraficantes
The New York Times (EE.UU.) Biofuels Push Becomes Weapon in Colombia's War on Narco-Traffickers
A farmer smiles as he surveys his 25-acre palm plantation in the steamy hill country near the Venezuelan border.

Government support for biodiesel has spurred a robust demand for palm oil that has put 50 percent more income into the pocket of farmer Misael Monsalve Moreno. He is almost finished replacing his family's cramped wooden shack with a new brick house.

It is hard to believe, he said, that just five years ago he and many of his neighbors were growing coca -- the main ingredient for cocaine -- for Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC), a narco-trafficking rebel group that then controlled this part of the Catatumbo region.

"Everybody was growing coca around this area," he said. "I have to say the truth. Everyone had to grow coke." ver>>

 

Chávez: Aliados se reunieron con rebeldes colombianos
Times (EE.UU) Chavez: Allies Met with Colombian Rebels
President Hugo Chavez revealed for the first time on Sunday that some of his political allies have collaborated with Colombia's guerrillas in the past but he said he warned them to stop because it could give Washington an excuse to attack Venezuela.

Chavez said he contacted radical government supporters who had met with the leftist rebels, presumably to tell them to stop collaborating with groups that Colombia and U.S. officials consider terrorist.

The Venezuelan president didn't say exactly who was supporting the rebels.

"On one occasion they were meeting with Colombian guerrillas, and they were making plans to set up some bases for Colombian rebels in Venezuela behind all of our backs," Chavez said during a May Day speech to supporters in Caracas. "They don't realize it's the perfect excuse for imperialism to attack the people of Venezuela." ver>>
