Havana, Oct 12 (Prensa Latina) - The guerrilla women of the FARC-EP launched today a website in which they expressed their experiences as women who love Colombia and believe in the real possibility of achieving peace with social justice.
On the site mujerfariana.co, we will have our opinion on proposals of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People’s Army (FARC-EP) for the construction of a more just and equitable society, towards socialism, said Victoria Sandino, member of the guerrilla delegation.
As Sandino reported in the Havana Convention Center, venue of the talks between FARC-EP and the government of the South American nation since last November, the site will also be useful to discuss on the issue of Colombian women and popular struggles.
A vicious media campaign has been launched against our organization, supported by the imperial economic and political power to undermine our revolutionary and humanist essence, silence avenging voices and hindering the actions of those who have risen up in rebellion, she reported.
She added that in FARC-EP, the guerrilla found a plenty of possibilities to recognize them as women, social fighters subjected policies, fighters against all forms of discrimination and exploitation.
Sandino reiterated the need to recognize the importance of the process that is on progress in Havana, its decisive support to the efforts of those fighting for the end of the war and construction of a r truly democratic regime in that South American country.
The Myrtles Plantation is a plantation near Baton Rouge, LA and is rumored to be standing on top of an ancient Tunica Indian burial ground. It is considered to be America’s most haunted home, today it offers tours and is a bed and breakfast.
The most popular story of the Myrtles plantation was of a young slave named Chloe who was eavesdropping on her master’s business dealings, when discovered her ear was cut off and she wore a green turban to cover the ear. Chloe baked a cake with poison made of oleander leaves and fed it to the two kids and the wife, Sara who died after eating the cake. Reasons for the poisoning range from exacting revenge to wanting to fall back into the family’s good graces by curing them of the poisoning. Chloe was hung by the fellow slaves to escape punishment on them by harboring Chloe.
It is also reported that a young native girl is seen on the premises as well as a civil war soldier.
