US Bases in Colombia: It is a Time for Mobilization, for Marching Together
Written by Fidel Castro Ruz
This reflection is not addressed to the governments, but to the fraternal peoples of Latin America.
Tomorrow, August 28, the UNASUR Summit will convene in Argentina and its significance cannot be overlooked.
There, an analysis should be made of the concession to the American superpower of seven military bases in the Colombian territory. A rigorous secrecy had been imposed on the previous talks of the two governments. The accord should have been presented to the world as a fait accompli.

“The political circumstances are suitable to improve the Armed Movement and the Bolivarian Movement.” Manuel Marulanda Vélez
The FARC’s soul as a flag waving in the wind is mentioned in this Manuel’s saying. 45 years ago we began the fight to look for peace, justice and dignity for Colombia in the Marquetalia heights which is the people’s resistance mountain. Since then we are the armed response of the poor and the righteous people against various types of state violence.

I was just listening to some music of Julian Conrado, who was a musician and member of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia – People’s Army (FARC-EP), which is a Marxist-Leninist guerrilla organization that has been fighting for socialism and national liberation in that country for more than 40 years. Conrado was reported killed in the illegal U.S./Colombian Government raid in Ecuador that also killed Raul Reyes. The music is beautiful and inspiring, so I thought I would post this excellent video here.
“All men must die, but death can vary in its significance. The ancient Chinese writer Szuma Chien said, ‘Though death befalls all men alike, it may be weightier than Mount Tai or lighter than a feather.’ To die for the people is weightier than Mount Tai, but to work for the fascists and die for the exploiters and oppressors is lighter than a feather.” - Mao Zedong
