Washington D.C. - Fight Back! interviews Kati Ketz, who attended the trial of Ricardo Palmera here, April 8. Ketz is a member of Students for a Democratic Society in Asheville, North Carolina. The National Committee to Free Ricardo Palmera urges all progressive people to attend the trial.

Ricardo Palmera is a leading member of the FARC (the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) who represented the rebel group in peace negotiations with the Colombian government.

Tom Burke of the National Committee to Free Ricardo Palmera states, “The prosecution is trying to set up Palmera and the FARC on phony drug charges. The U.S. government is trying to discredit the rebels and justify U.S. intervention in Colombia. Ricardo Palmera should be released now.”
