A dialogue between two important members of the FARC (Colombian revolutionary Armed Forces), appears to be among the evidence submitted by the Colombian authorities to the Venezuelan Government according to Colombias Radio Caracol.
Here is the translation of the only written report I have seen on the issue, which suggests that more than one hundred members of the FARC guerillas were in Caracas in early December for the II Peoples Bolivarian Congress, financed and organized by the Chavez Government.. I had talked to two reporters who had mentioned this to me, but said they could not talk about it and I also heard on the radio.
Here is El Universals report translated by me:
A telephone dialogue between two presumed rebels of the FARC who coordinated their participation in a forum that was Caracas in Caracas comprises part of the evidence given by Colombia to Venezuela on the supposed active presence of guerrillas in Venezuelan territory, the local press revealed today.
In the recording, according to Radio Caracol, 'Juan Santrich,' presumed member of the General Staff of the CRAF, and 'Jorge Tivieras,' who was a connection in Caracas and logistic coordinator of a rebellious international front that resides in that city, disclosed DPA.
Tivieras' confirms to 'Santrich' that there are 41 people accredited for the congress and they aspire to at least 100, to have their ID cards to participate in that Bolivarian encounter (...) and define that transport is assured by bus for 600 sympathizers, said to the radio broadcasting station, mentioning the tape.
According to Radio Caracol, the recording was one of proofs sent by Bogotá to Caracas that would confirm the presence and ' the political activism of the FARC in Venezuela.'

THANK YOU MIGUEL FOR TRANSLATING THIS FOR US!!! We are miles ahead of the mainstream media! They'll report this in a couple of days if they get around to it.
its about time mao tse chavez took a long walk off a short pier
The longer he stays, the bigger the problem it will be to overturn communism in South America. And, with Fidel's & Chavez's help its on the march in a very serious way.
You certainly have a clear-thinking perspective.
Chavez's plan is to use the filthy FARC guerrillas to spread his chavista revolution all through the Americas - El Salvador, Argetina, Bolivia, even Chile, believe it or not. He bought the guns for them, guns he doesn't need for his army, now it's just a question of distribution.
Poor President Uribe of Colombia shouldn't have to fight these animals alone. It's time to help.
