Summary: A Democratic Society publication from Popyán and Buga declaring the organization's support for Rafael Nuñez in the presidential elections and denouncing the lack of free press and other civil liberties under the current government led by Radical Liberal Santiago Pérez de Manosalbas. The first part of the document is a fictitious conversation.
Historical Notes: During the 1870's, Colombia was rife with political conflict, both between radical and moderate Liberals, and between Liberals and Conservatives. The liberals who signed this document supported independent Liberal candidates and disapproved of the Radical Liberal administration that was in power (1867-1880).
