COLOMBIA: In the wake
of the late reported El Salado massacre (see story above), Senator Paul
Wellstone (D-MN) is circulating a letter to be sent to President Clinton
asking that Colombia be decertified for US military assistance -- i.e.
the recently passed "Plan Colombia" -- based on continued human rights
abuses. Please call your Senators -- use the Congressional Switchboard
at (202) 224-3121 to be transferred to their offices -- or visit http://www.drcnet.org/stopthehelicopters/
to tell your Senators that Plan Colombia was a terrible mistake and it's
time to call it off before it's too late.
