"We must also recognize
that evil can use absolute liberty. I myself would have a different point of view
with respect to the right of Socrates to drink hemlock, which
I sustain in how much and how wise it would be to permit 12-year-old
adolescents to be able to acquire alcoholic beverages."
- U.S. Ambassador
to Mexico Jeffrey Davidow
U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Jeffrey Davidow claimed in June 2001 that, "the consumption of

Letter from Colombia Guerrilla
Column for Publication
"On the 27th of June, 1996, I left my house and headed
to work on a second-class bus of the Transporte Figueroa lines,
from Cintalapa to Tuxtla. There was a police operation... There
were boxes of marijuana down below. I had brought only a backpack.
But they said the boxes were mine. I was arrested by the public
security police. I denied it repeatedly. They threatened to shoot
me with guns and beat me if I didn't say it was mine. It was
fabrications. And so I came to Cerro Hueco and now I'm fighting.
We are going to obtain liberty."
Gustavo Estrada Gómez, April 1998

"A precedent-setting case that raises fundamental questions
about free speech in the globalized world of cyberspace, as well
as the role of the independent journalists in a media world increasingly
controlled by corporate giants."

"The new independent journalists of the Internet, as personified
by Al Giordano, play a crucial role in preserving the democratic
aspirations of First Amendment protection. The role of such journalists
is especially salient as mainstream media is increasingly in
the hands of fewer and fewer large corporations."

"Make no mistake. This court fight isn't about any
particular story NarcoNews has done. It's about ALL of them,
and all of the ones yet to come. And it's a battle over the continued
independence of Internet journalism as well. The silencing of
Al Giordano and NarcoNews isn't a theoretical possibility that
might happen a couple years from now. It's already happening.
Al and his volunteer lawyers are hip-deep in it right now. And
they need our help."
