We have just received the following horrifying news from the Peace Community of San Jose, Northern Colombia, which I have translated (very quickly). Letters of protest will at least let the extremely violent Colombian State know they are being watched… Also if you cc. any letters you send to the San Jose offices, your solidarity will give heart… and Please return their bombing with a bombardment of letters!

Rather than me waste time in this urgent situation translating it, please accept that it says all the right things and send it off! (Addresses at end of letter.) Love to everyone, and thanks, Jenny James

Police Has Killer On Video, but...? Not even a description?

17-11-2005 14:03

Strange isn't it? For 4 decades the major media paid my independent journalism handsomely as their foreign correspondent, but not anymore.
