Tucson Anti-War Committee mobilizes to free Simon Trinidad

By staff

Tucson, AZ – Members of the Tucson Anti-War Committee are preparing for an historic action in Colorado to demand the release of Colombian revolutionary Simon Trinidad. Trinidad, a member of the FARC, is in solitary confinement at a federal Supermax prison infamously known as the “Guantanamo of the Rockies.”

Trinidad is needed by the FARC in their negotiations with the Colombian government in order to secure peace with social justice. Activists from around the U.S. and media from around the world will converge in Florence, Colorado to ensure that President Obama hears the demand “Free Simon Trinidad now!”

The action will be on Monday Sept. 21 at 11:00 a.m. on State Route 67 in Florence, Colorado in front of the federal prison.

There will be a public information meeting on the 20th at 6:00 p.m. at the Posner Center, 1031 33rd Street in Denver, Colorado.
