Dictatorship and the Class system in Uganda
What many Ugandans have not realised or pretending not to acknowledge, is the inequality in society built on hallmarks of tribalism. Its all about empowering a tribal middle class while the rest of the population is left helpless and scrimping for fish bone...

Commander-in-Chief of the FARC-EP, Timoleón Jiménez, wrote an article about president Santos' trip to Europe, during which he tried to obtain support for the peace process. What is hidden behind his official discourse? What is the truth behind his stories about the reality of #Colombia ?  What does the word "peace" mean for the elites in our country?

THE PEACE PROCESS SHOULD CONTINUE

Havana, Cuba, site of the peace talks, November 18, 2014
The Peace Delegation FARC-EP expresses its surprise at President Santos’ announcement to suspend the peace talks in Havana.
The peace process, whose results have renewed the hope for reconciliation, cannot be put at risk with impulsive decisions. To the astonishment of the world, this decision is taken by a government that has stubbornly refused the possibility for the peace process to be developed amid a truce or armistice, that could help to de-escalate the conflict. The position to be at peace talks under fire seems more senseless every day.
We hope the inconsistencies of the government, who permanently reiterates that what happens in Colombia shouldn't affect the peace talks in Havana, will cease; we continue working for peace and willing to continue the talks, attending to what we agreed in the General Agreement of Havana, which states that "the talks will be direct and uninterrupted." We want this impasse to be resolved as soon as possible, so that the process will keep on progressing smoothly towards a final agreement.
Peace Delegation of the FARC-EP

Written by: Timoshenko, commander-in-chief of the FARC-EP
The justice minister, son of Dr. Reyes Echandía who was slaughtered by the National Army during the retaking of the Palace of Justice in 1985, joins the excitement generated within the ruling classes and their mainstream press, because of the absurd sentencing of militias of the #FARC-EP by an Indigenous Assembly in Cauca.
After a brief oral trial, that lasted only three hours, an Assembly of Nasa indigenous sentenced five of the defendants to up to sixty and forty years in prison. The other two, who are assured to be minors, were submitted to a couple of lashes, prior to delivery to any state agency. At least that's what the mainstream media report.

TWO SOLDIERS WERE MADE POW AFTER BEING CAPTURED IN COMBAT: #FARC-EP

General Lasprilla, commander of the National Army, has spoken to the media to tell lies again about the FARC-EP and the development of the internal armed conflict.
It isn't true that the Tenth Front "Comandante Arcesio Niño" and the company "Alfonso Castellanos" had prepared an attack on the town of Tame, Arauca, on November 9, which was reportedly frustrated by the actions of government troops. What really took place that day, was the operation HONOR AND GLORY TO OUR MARTYRS, in development of the memorial acts during the third anniversary of the assassination of our Comandante Alfonso Cano.
The operation took place between 2:45 and 3:30 pm on November 9; it consisted of an assault and take-over of a patrol of the 34 mobile brigade, belonging to the Task Force Quirón, carried out in rural area of the town La Esperanza, of that same municipality, leaving two soldiers dead, four injured, two captured and the following weapons recovered: a machine gun Neget 2.23 caliber with replacement parts, one Multiple Grenade Launcher with 6 40 mm grenades, 3 M16 rifles, 2.23 caliber, 9 suppliers, 5 holsters and a cannon for a M-60 machine gun, 2.23, 19 M 26 grenades, 14 bags with all the equipment and abundant information, together with other military material.
Nor is it true that the #FARC-EP has kidnapped two professional soldiers. The soldiers Paulo Cesar Rivera and Jonatán Andrés Díaz were made prisoners after being captured in open combat. Much less is it true that working in this way are we violating human rights or international humanitarian law. On the contrary, what we are doing is acting in compliance with these international legal principles, respecting their lives and physical integrity and giving them the humanitarian treatment they deserve. Quite the opposite of what the National Army did, by order of President Santos, when it executed our Comandante Alfonso Cano after being bombed and captured.
Much less is it true that the FARC-EP is not fulfilling its commitment of not carrying out any detentions anymore. General Lasprilla and the whole country know that since February 2012, the FARC-EP publicly expressed our decision not to carry out detentions for financial purposes, completely different from the phenomenon of the capture of prisoners of war. After their permanent aerial bombing and strafing operations, the troops land on the ground and capture wounded guerrilla combatants and other survivors, to lead them to the state prisons where they are subjected to discriminatory and inhuman treatment. Unlike the state and the government, the FARC-EP expresses its willingness to talk about the release of prisoners.
Finally, General Lasprilla also lies when he claims that his troops can pursue, repress, bomb, shoot, murder, kidnap, threaten and carry out other kinds of criminal acts against the people's discontent and the armed insurgency, but he condemns the legitimate response that rises heroically from the people of Colombia. We cannot understand how a regime that talks about peace and reconciliation stubbornly refuses to agree to a ceasefire or armistice, which has been repeatedly proposed by us.
