Colombia

The USA resumes "drug-interception" flights over Colombia. These flights were suspended in 2001 after a plane carrying a USA missionary and her seven month old child, was shot down.

The USA funds the spraying of toxic chemicals over coco-growing areas in southern Colombia. This causes problems in the country as well as in neighbouring Ecuador. Many crops (maize, plantain, coffee) are destroyed affecting peoples' livelihood. People and livestock suffer from various aliments, including genetic damage.

The chemical being used is Roundup Ultra (produced by the USA company, Monsanto - the same company responsible for Agent Orange sprayed over Vietnam). It is being sprayed in high concentrations (26%) and spiked with another toxin, Cosmoflex 411F. The safe concentration for this chemical declared by the USA Environmental Protection Agency is 1%.
