Special Edition Newsletter – September 2019
WHILE THERE IS A WILL TO FIGHT, THERE IS HOPE TO OVERCOME
MARQUETALIA is the publication of the “Danilo García” Command of the FARC-EP “Second Marquetalia,” dedicated to the inhabitants of the vast area of what used to be the Magdalena Medio block.
It arises from the need to maintain direct communication with communities, organizations and individuals, since the mainstream media censor the voice and stigmatize the actions of the oppressed and the insurgent movement, while denouncing and making visible the social, political and economic realities that the media hides.
We are convinced that another world is possible and is also urgently necessary for the stability of the planet and the sustainability of life. Today everyone’s struggle must be aimed at stopping predation and pollution, for the preservation of the environment and the possibility of a good life.
[The body of the newsletter is the Manifesto of the FARC-EP issued on August 28, 2019.]
