Kovalik reports on some "inconvenient" truths about another close ally of the US ruling class.
...a notable fact in the Victims Unit report is that "that the majority of victimization occurred after 2000, peaking in 2002 at 744,799 victims." It is not coincidental that "Plan Colombia," or "Plan Washington" as many Colombians have called it, was inaugurated by President Bill Clinton in 2000, thus escalating the conflict to new heights and new levels of barbarity. Plan Colombia is the plan pursuant to which the U.S. has given Colombia over $8 billion of mostly military and police assistance.So, who are the victims? According to Human Rights Watch:
Human rights defenders, trade unionists, journalists, indigenous and Afro-Colombian leaders, and IDP [internally displaced persons] leaders face death threats and other abuses.
