I wonder if this means we can except the U.S. government to step up its
involvement in Columbia's Civil War.

Today (wednesday May 31th, 2000), about 15:00 (local time) the Burn! machine 
has been disconnected, and cannot be reached at anymore.

This decission was taken by the Department of Communication of the University 
of California, San Diego (, where the Burn! 
machine used to operate. The reason was the "unusual increase of the protest 
calls that the Department of Communication regularly receives". It seems that 
this increase was caused by the attention payed by Burn! to the FARC in 
Colombia. It seems that this increase is not only quantitative, but also 
qualitative: they were from important people in the university.

The UCSD is a private institution. Last week, there was a meeting between a 
Burn! comrade and the direction of the Department, trying to find a solution. 
I guess this meant to remove the info about the FARC. The page was no 
changed, and, because the "persistence of pressions", the director of the 
Department of Communication, "very sorry", disconnected the server. I don't 
know what the Burn! comrades plan to do.

Those who want to express their concerns, can write to the director of the 
Carol A. Padden
Tel: (858) 534-2843
Fax:(858) 534-7315 

I insist that I don't know what kind of campaign or actions the Burn! 
comrades plan to do. As far as I know, the relation between Burn! and the 
department direction is (maybe was) of dialogue.

Salud y lucha.
