Protesters in Washington D.C. demand freedom for Ricardo Palmera (Fight Back! News/Staff)

Speaking with Fight Back! Dec. 15, a leader of the U.S.-based National Committee to Free Ricardo Palmera, Tom Burke, slammed a Nov. 12 lawsuit filed in Florida Middle District Court against the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC). Burke stated, "This is nothing more than an attempt by a group of U.S. mercenaries to gain publicity and put some more money in their pockets. The lawsuit fits into a larger agenda - to criminalize the main Colombian rebel group, the FARC, an organization that is fighting for a free, just and independent Colombia."
