Free Ingrid Betancourt Universe is up in Netvibes

Netvibes public pages (Universes) offer a lot of different profiles.

I take the opportunity to present a Universe that I helped to build dedicated to :

Ingrid Betancourt , hostage since February 23, 2002 !

Íngrid Betancourt Pulecio (born December 25, 1961, Bogotá and mother of two) is a Colombian politician, former senator and anti-corruption activist.

Betancourt was kidnapped by the FARC on February 23, 2002 while campaigning for the presidency, after she decided to campaign in an area of high guerrilla presence and ignored warnings from the government, police and military not to do so.

She is still being held by the FARC guerrilla group as a key hostage for a possible humanitarian exchange of prisoners for hostages with the government of Colombia.

Last news coming from Columbia are not reassuring:
According to her family, she suffers from hepatitis, a recurring viral infection that affects the liver and can lead to cancer and cirrhosis."If we don't act quickly, mother will die. This is an emergency," said her son Lorenzo.

On this Universe you will find updates, news, initiatives, images and videos, online petitions...
