Winona LaDuke: Opposes military aid to Colombia

“A lot of military aid is going to a country [Colombia] who has no enemies; one-third of our money is going to weapons to fight a foe we can’t see.” LaDuke said that until the US provided weapons to Colombia, there was no conflict. “We provided the guns and the civil unrest”, she said. “Do not tell me there is no personal interest in Colombia.”
