Defend Happiness like a trench

Defend her from the scandal and the routine

of misery and those who are miserable

from the transitory absences

URIBE'S STRATEGY - DISPOSSESSION, LIES, AGRESSION, FALSE POSITIVES, JUDICIAL FRAME-UPS and IMPUNITY

Santiago de Cali, 7 April 2009

Valle University, EMSIRVA and EMCALI are laboratories of the Uribe government's third phase of neo-liberalism: the definitive handover of public commonwealth to private corporations and the multinationals.

They were prohibited from going to school and to university.

They were prohibited from constitutional guarantees.

They were prohibited from all the sciences, except military science.

Prohibiting the right to complain, they were prohibited from questioning.

Today I suggest to you, my brother, that this does not happen again,

Prohibited to Forget!
