EL reported….. Question. Some think the FARC turn to you, a Western woman, intelligent and eloquent to improve its image.

Response. Bothers me say that I am part of the communication campaign of the FARC. What we want is to have our view of things.

The Colombian government has many difficulties to my participation in the peace talks.

P. The FARC were born in 1964. What is your current struggle?

R. Times change, but the oppression continues. We consider an armed political party whose ideology is based on Marxism-Leninism. Those are the ideas for which we fight. We want to make radical reforms. What we wonder is how can we participate in politics? That try our talks with the government.
