The Peace Delegation of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People's Army, welcomes all the people who today, April 9th, 2013, have decided to march for peace in Colombia and who have made enormous efforts to travel from the four corners of the country to the capital of the Republic, to express their desire for our country to achieve a just, democratic and sustainable peace for everybody.
We, the guerrilla women of the FARC-EP who are here at La Habana, Cuba, to carry out the peace dialogues with the Colombian government, received your letter. You can´t imagine our emotion and joy to receive a letter from the other side of the ocean, from women who, just like us, fight for a just, free world.
in spanish:Queridas camaradas del PKK
Alfonso Cano, another revolutionary leader who embraces immortality.
There, in the middle of the uncontainable guerrilla fire against an ignominious regime that oppresses us and wants to sell our fatherland, he accomplished his appointment with death, fulfilling his historical duty, being a prideful example for the revolutionary people of Colombia, Latin America and the entire world.
Biographical sketch of a heroic guerrilla fighter.
A glorious death triumphs over time and extends
sublime existence forever. SIMÓN BOLÍVAR
30 airplanes and 27 helicopters, 7 tons of tritonal explosives and the latest military technology of the US South Command and the Israeli Mossad, the disproportional use of force and the terrorist violence of the regime, together, against one man in his quarter in the jungle, who wasn´t just a man; he was a nation.
What happened in the night of the 22nd of September in the Macarena jungle wasn´t a combat; it was a dirty assassination, a massacre executed at close range, without any risk for the terrorist State subordinated to Washington´s orders. Against commander Jorge Briceño, member of the FARC Secretariat, was concentrated all the firepower and all the hatred of a criminal, dominant ultra-right class, who has been covering the country with blood and poverty.

The area we had chosen for the liberation of the war prisoners Luis Alfonso Beltrán, César Augusto Laso, Carlos José Duarte, Jorge Trujillo, Jorge Humberto Romero y José LibardoForero, all of them members of the State´s armed forces, captured in combat, has been militarized without any justification by the Colombian government, which obliges us to postpone the liberation.
Patriot military had already alerted us about the intentions of the Santos government to carry out a military rescue at all costs, without being concerned about the fact that this could end up in a sorrowful result, like on the 26th of November last year. This attitude is according to the government´s recent decision to obstruct international humanitarian participation in the announced liberation.
We want to liberate them alive, but it seems as if the government prefers to hand them over in catafalques to their families.
Despite these circumstances, honored ladies, our unilateral determination, emerged from the FARC-EP´s political sovereignty and from a deep feeling of humanity, is still in force. As soon as the insanity which has taken over the Nariño Palace abates, we will give it another try so that you can receive the ones who will be liberated.
Secretariat of the Central General Staff of the FARC-EP
Colombian Jungle, 1st of February 2012
Ten years ago the peace conversations in El Caguán came to an end. The Andrés Pastrana government decided to close the doors of dialogue and to bet on the total war against us. We were accused of all the perversities you can imagine. Huge hordes of mercenary soldiers trained by gringo advisers were sent to crush us. Artillery helicopters and all kinds of airplanes set off to tear us to shreds
