Colombia’s largest rebel group FARC called on their imprisoned
guerrillas to not collaborate with Colombian authorities in exchange
for reduced sentences.
“We call on all our fighters and revolutionaries (…) to refuse the offers to betray their people and the cause the FARC defends,” the guerrillas’ Secretariat published on FARC-friendly website ANNCOL.
The publication is a response to the collaboration with authorities of former FARC guerrillas ‘Karina’ and ‘Olivo Saldaña’ and the demobilized guerrillas becoming ‘Managers of Peace’ or “Managers’ of Betrayal” as the FARC write in their publication.
The FARC said they will never demobilize under the Justice and Peace law that was called into life to give right wing paramilitary organization AUC to demobilize. The guerrillas they say will never be treated similarly as “the hordes of paramilitary murderers organized by the State in its war against the people.”
