Resolution on Colombia
Meeting of the Socialist International Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean, Kingston, Jamaica, 1-2 September 2000
The Socialist International Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean reiterates its grave concern about the situation in Colombia and expresses its support for all efforts towards strengthening political solutions in the search for national reconciliation.
It reaffirms its solidarity with the people of Colombia and with its member party, the Liberal Party, in their efforts to achieve full participation of citizens and a social consensus to confront inequalities, overcome injustice and put an end to violence.
The Committee makes an appeal in order to ensure that the application of the so-called Plan Colombia does not mean increased militarisation or violence, nor an obstacle to the continuity and development of the current peace negotiations or the lengthening of the civil conflagration.
