Never miss a show! Email Signup Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts

The U.S. government wants to increase its military support to Colombia, the number one recipient of U.S. aid in the western hemisphere, and the number one violator of human rights. On this program we take a look at U.S. involvement in Colombia, and what’s behind U.S. counter-narcotics operations there.

Featuring:

Cecilia Zarate-Laun, Colombia Support Network; Carlos Salinas, Amnesty International; Stan Goff, a former special operations U.S. army officer in Latin America who served in Colombia and Peru in the early 1990s; Dennis Grammenos, Colombian Labor Monitor; Shannon Wright, Rainforest Action Network; Antonio Prieto, Information Services Latin America.
