“Peace cannot be the result of a dialogue removed from the Colombian people (…) of unilateral impositions. The entire country must come forward and demand its decisive participation in the peace process,” the guerrilla indicated in a statement read in Havana by Farc negotiator, Luis Alberto Albán, alias “Marco León Calarcá”.
Farc and the Government resumed peace talks after taking a five-day break. For the guerrilla, this negotiating table is where “two ways of seeing the national conflict and suggest a resolution” meet. “On one hand is the Government’s view, which defends the higher class and the immobility of the current order. On the other is the insurgency’s proposal, built based on the vision of the lower income population who is desperate for changes,” Calarcá said.
