PLAN COLOMBIA: Cashing-in on the Drug-War Failure

The film Plan Colombia will be shown Thursday, November 13, 7:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 9 Ross Drive (at Fourth Street), San Rafael. Discussed are issues of drug-trafficking and civil struggle in Colombia, the impact of both the current chemical-spray program by US defense-contractor Dyncorps and the multi-billion dollar "aid" to the brutal Colombian military; and the US government's interest in Colombian oil.

People interviewed include Colombian Presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt (now a hostage of the FARC-Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), the late US Senator Paul Wellstone, US Representative John Conyers, as well as guerrilla leaders.

The Marin Peace & Justice Coalition is sponsoring this event and suggests a $5-7 donation. No one turned away for lack of funds. For more information call 415/721-2844.
