errorOn to Mexico City
International Gathering of
Plan Colombia Opponents
March 4th & 5th
at the National Autonomous University (UNAM)
Translated by The Narco News Bulletin
The 2nd International Gathering of Solidarity
and for Peace in Colombia and Latin America
March 4th and 5th, Mexico City

Adolfo Prez Esquivel, Nobel Peace Laureate; Bishop Federico Pagura, of Argentina, President of the World Council of Churches; Ahmed Ben Bella, Presidente NOR-SUD XXI and former President of Algeria; Profesor James Petras of New York State University, Doctor Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney General, Mumia Abu-Jamal, political prisoner in the United States; R. James Sacouman Professor of Acadia University Wolfville, Nova Scotia; Henry Veltmeyer, Professor, Saint Mary's University Halifax, Canad; Heinz Dieterich, professor, Universidad Autnoma Metropolitana, Mxico; Luis Eduardo Garzn, union leader and Colombian presidential candidate for the Social and Political Front, and other adherents listed below.

1. Plan Colombia and its corresponding Andean Regional Inititiative bring anew the direct military intervention of the United States in the internal affairs of a sovereign Latin American state, the Republic of Colombia, in the manner of the Monroe Doctrine, Roosevelt's corrolary, the destruction of the legitimate government of Salvador Allende in Chile, the continued aggressions against the Sandinistas in Nicaragua, the direct participation in the Central American wars and continued hostility toward Cuba with a criminal blockade in spite of annual United Nations resolutions.

2. That said intervention constitutes a flagrant violation of international law, and of the right of self-determination by peoples, and a threat to the peace and stability of the region.

3. That by its nature as counter-insurgency, Plan Colombia and its corresponding Andean Regional Initiative are led mainly against the civil population of Colombia and has as its immediate goal to destroy or neutralize the resistance by all social sectors who are opposed to the project of neoliberal restructuring of the Colombian and Latin American economies.

4. That Plan Colombia and its corresponding Andean Regional Initiative, in reality, is a military plan that involves the countries of the region - through the so-called Andean Regional Initiative - and compromises them with intervention led without a doubt toward control of the Amazon basin, affecting the sovereignty of the countries of the region. It places the consolidation, in Venezuela, of the process that Comandante Hugo Chvez leads in danger and affects the Central American countries involved in democratic development through paths other than war.

5. That Plan Colombia, as a war plan, is the principal obstacle to the search for solutions other than war for the Colombian conflict.

6. That it also causes the massive displacement of civilian populations from the assaulted areas to neighboring countries.

7. That the use of the most modern war technologies, including biological weapons against coca plantations, causes an unpredictable and serious danger for the ecology of the world's most important bio-diversity region, the Amazon.

8. That the plan for regional military intervention titled "Colombia" weakens the effort for good relations among neighbors and prepares war scenarios, creating uncertainty and anguish among the peoples of the region.

1. To convene international public opoinion and the democratic forces of the world to support and participate in the Second International Solidarity Gathering for Peace in Colombia and Latin America, to be held in Mexico City on March 4th and 5th of 2002.

2. To denounce and reject Plan Colombia and its annexed Andean Initiative as military intervention plans of the United States that negatively affect the peaceful co-existence, democratic stability and economic development of Latin American peoples and nations.

3. To promote the international solidarity by peoples and governments with the struggles of the Colombian people who seek a solution other than war for the social and armed conflict they suffer.

4. To generate possibilities of strengthening the bonds of friendship, integration and goodwill that allow for seeking development with social justice and peace.

5. To back the process of peace talks between the Colombian government and insurgent forces.

6. To support proposals of illicit crop substitution and the fight against narco-trafficking without resorting to war, because as an economic and social phenomenon it affects all of humanity.
