Now Available In English: "Historical Outline Of The FARC-EP"
"Historical Outline Of The FARC-EP", originally "Esbozo Historico FARC-EP" in
Spanish, is now available. It effectively summarizes the epic struggle of

This publication will help to clear the fog of misinformation about the
just struggle of the FARC-EP and the Colombian people and defeat the media
campaign slandering the FARC-EP as "narco-guerrillas" and "terrorists".
