Simón Trinidad is a member of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and reputedly the first high-ranking member of that guerrilla group to be captured. Trinidad is currently serving a 60-year sentence in solitary confinement in the United States at ADX Florence Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado.
Captured in Quito, Ecuador, he was eventually returned to Colombia and extradited to the United States with the goal of repressing the Colombian revolutionary movement.
The Colombian government and the rebels now are in a fragile peace agreement, and the US government should release Trinidad so he can partake in the political process in his home country. In this light we are writing letters to Simón Trinidad, and hoping to bring attention to his case, and his need for immediate release.
