THE U.S. AIR FORCE AND THE COLOMBIAN BASE AT PALANQUERO

As members of the SOA Watch delegation to Colombia, we are deeply concerned about the U.S.-Colombia Defense Cooperation Agreement signed on October 30, 2009, by which Colombia permits the U.S. to use seven Colombian military bases. We are in Colombia in order to express our solidarity with Colombians and other Latin Americans in protesting and denouncing this agreement, and we commit ourselves to continue this struggle in the U.S.

In an article entitled “Yankees Welcome,” the Colombian magazine Semana (October 31, 2009) analyzed the agreement, noting with concern a separate U.S. Air Force document which reveals the strategic interests of the Pentagon in upgrading the Colombian base at Palanquero, one of the seven bases included in the agreement. (This article in Semana can be found at http://www.semana.com/noticias-nacion/yankees-welcome/130763.aspx )

Update from the Colombia Delegation PDF Print E-mail

After the U.S. embassy refused to let the SOA Watch delegation enter the building, the group held a vigil and street theater outside the main gates of the U.S. embassy in Bogotá on Friday, August 6. When they first arrived, metro police tried to move them out, but they stood their ground, and the police quickly relented. Soon after, the chief of police informed Father Roy that they have orders not to arrest the group. It is unclear whether these orders come from the embassy or another source.





This past week the delegation has blocked the entrance to the Tolemaida militray base together with Colombian human rights activists (click here for more information), build relationships with Colombians who are working for justice and met with progressive Colombian senators, including Senator Piedad Cordoba--who was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for her successful mediation between the Colombian government and the FARC guerillas.
