does anyone have any links for this? eg for the Inter-American Human
Rights Commission, the ADUC--Asociación Nacional de Usuarios
Campesinos/National Peasants Association etc...
also, any links to indymedia articles, eg colombia?
i'd suggest that any language is good (spanish or english or whatever
else), maybe also having a spanish version (or has one been prepared or is
being prepared already??)
lots of questions - but matt, dead impressed at the articles you have been
providing and the breadth of coverage. keep it up!!
love & solidarity,
nb. also cc'd to www-editoriales as highly relevant to them also - and
sorry i don't have enough spanish.
