Rebellious Women: Political Prisoners in Colombia Speak Out

DUE TO A PRISON CRACKDOWN, THIS BOOK HAS BEEN DELAYED INDEFINITELY

What would it mean to be constantly watched, followed, harassed and eventually imprisoned for your political beliefs? Torn from their families and communities, a group of courageous women tell their stories from inside Colombia’s largest women’s maximum security prison. Rebellious Women is a unique collection of first-hand accounts of political activism in the context of the war on terror. These powerful testimonials by so-called “subversives” highlight the dangers of working for social justice in a country where the government frequently targets the opposition through imprisonment, disappearance and death.

Translated into English, and including their original Spanish, these testimonials have been composed in prison and secreted out by friends of Liliany Obando for publication here.

Edited By James J. Brittain, Terry Gibbs, Garry Leech, Barb Moore and James Sacouman
