FARC-EP Calls to Arrange Campaign vs. US Military Bases

Military-base-470x225The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People”s Army (FARC-EP) described as urgent and a necessary task the arrangement of a campaign in all Latin America and Caribbean countries against U.S. military bases.

In a statement of its International Commission dated in this capital, the guerrilla group stated that, to face the progress of unity in the region and the strengthening of mechanisms, such as the Union of South American Nations and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, “the empire (the United States) continues without pause the military occupation.”

The document referred that there are currently 36 military bases scattered throughout the continent, occupying strategic positions in the region, under the pretext of fighting drug trafficking and terrorism.

“The first ones in suffering humiliation were Puerto Rico and Cuba, the latter with the naval base in Guantanamo, which is nowadays used as a jail for the prisoners accused of terrorism and those who have been abducted in different countries,” the text stated.

About the Colombian situation, the statement mentioned the existence of seven military bases, but there are actually 12, and the United States have permission to use “if necessary” all ports and airports in the country for military purposes.

Although the document stated that no country is capable of responding militarily to the United States, it considered the country can force it to get out of the territory, “as (President) Rafael Correa did with the Manta military base in Ecuador.”
