Suppression of News in Colombia and Political
Statements Prevented from Reaching the People

      In Colombia, as elsewhere, much of the real news about what is happening to the working class and the poor, is suppressed, or at the very least is not widely reported. And for reasons like this the claims that Colombia enjoys a true “democracy” and “a free press” are gross distortions of the real situation. We at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET will try to help break down this government and media news embargo.

      If you know of other suppressed documents and news reports that should be posted here, contact us at:

Censorship and Suppression of Ideas in Colombia

U.S. and Other Imperialist Intervention in Colombia

Unión Obrera Comunista (marxista-leninista-maoísta)

        [The Communist Workers Union (MLM) is a serious revolutionary organization in Colombia, which was founded, we believe, in 1998. It has an Internet home page at: At present, most of its publications are only available in Spanish, but we hope to soon be able to post a few more key documents in English.]

Contradicción   [“Contradiction”]   MLM Theoretical Journal (1990-1997)

Other Revolutionary Organizations in Colombia


      Due to the repressive legislation and judicial decisions in the United States, we at BANNEDTHOUGHT.NET want to make it completely clear that we do not have any connection whatsoever with any revolutionary or other political parties or organizations in Colombia. We do not aid, promote, assist, support, coordinate with, or provide any sort of services or advice to any parties in Colombia or elsewhere. However, we do support the right of free speech, and the right of the people in both Colombia and internationally to read the views and publications of all parties and organizations. And for this reason alone we are making copies of many of their documents available on this site.
