Fighter for Freedom
Her Growing Enviorment
One of the Armed groups
Why she is fighting for peace
Farlis saw the site of a massacre in La Chinita while all of the bodies still there and heard the story of her mother’s friend and husband. The husband begged the armed group who assaulted the party not to kill his wife but him instead so they shot them both.
More than twelve hundred people were assassinated at this time in her life, seventeen of them were government officials and not one of the armed groups was sent to court or put on trial. A few weeks later a bus was attacked on the side of the road and these were her thoughts,“ A friend of my fathers was on killed on the bus. We never spoke of it as a family, but we all sensed that next time it could be one of us.”
