"Only a National Constituent Assembly can change the justice system"
In Colombia there is a corruption scandal going on in the Constitutional Court regarding one of its judges, Jorge Pretelt. He is being accused of influence-peddling and his wife has to respond for possible crimes related to a land property, claimed by victims of paramilitary groups.
The historical responsibility of violence
This morning, 5th of August 2013, commander Pablo Catatumbo read a communiqu? written by the Peace Delegation of the FARC-EP, called ?the historical responsibility of violence?. In Colombia there has been going on a polemic discussion about the victims theme. The Colombian State and their mass media have carried out huge campaigns to convince Colombia and the world of the fact that the guerrilla is victimizer of the conflict.
To the inhabitants of Catatumbo:
A huge and brave peasant mobilization is carried out in the department of Norte de Santander. For a month and a half, the national government headed by Juan Manuel Santos has played deaf to the requests of the communities. He proposes to grant some breadcrumbs that have nothing to do with the issues the peasants put forward, and demands the peasants to stop the protests and mobilizations.
