nettime: FWD: Colombian Crackdown

FWD'd from a friend who urges everyone to pass it on...

>This past week a top Colombian Army official called for the closure of the
>web page dedicated to Gloria Cuartas, the mayor of Apartado in
>violence-torn northwest Colombia. The page was created in 1996 by the
>Colombia Support Network of Madison, Wisconsin, to provide news to the
>world about the repression by the military and their para-military
>allies against the civilian population and Mayor Gloria Cuartas, who
>had a million peso bounty on her head. The publicity helped  prevent the
>death of the mayor.
>Visit the Web page that the Colombian Army's High Command doesn't want
>you to read!
