Colombian bishops slam donation by Dutch group to Marxist rebels

.- The President of the Colombian Bishops Conference, Cardinal Pedro Rubiano Saenz, denounced a Danish non-governmental organization this week for making a donation of $8,500 to the Armed Revolutionary Forces of Colombia (FARC).

Cardinal Saenz, Archbishop of Bogota, said the donation made by the organization “Rebellion,” based in Denmark, was especially serious because “it breaks the principle of international solidarity in the rejection of all types of violence.”

Cardinal Rubiano added, “It is absurd that these international organizations make themselves the spokesman of a reality which they really are not living.”  He also expressed dismay that this Danish association did not know that the FARC is a terrorist organization.
