War in Colombia: Made in USA

War in Colombia: Made in USA Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A voice is given to the Colombian resistance in this compilation of essays by those opposed to Plan Colombia, the disastrous fumigation campaign enacted as part of the war on drugs. Background is given on the origin and evolution of Plan Colombia and the decades of societal crisis that have led to the insurgencies of today. This look at the Colombian resistance explores the struggle for political and economic democracy; the environmental impact of the large-scale fumigation program, including water contamination and plant eradication; the displacement of millions of peasants; and the inhumane policies mandated by large corporations. Contributors include Ramsey Clark, Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, Lucio Gutierrez, and Senator Paul Wellstone.
