‘The War Has Gone On for So Long Many Believe It’s Still Not Over’: Peace Commissioner Sergio Jaramillo (S)

 

Excerpts of interview with La Vanguardia: How long has the war been going on. From 1964 to last November, but already during the 1950s we suffered terrible political violence that in the 1960s morphed into a civil war, that seemed to be ending in the 90s with the fall of the Berlin Wall, but was re-ignited by the narcotics….Seven million displaced people, tens of thousands of kidnappings and disappeared, hundreds of thousands of dead … The war has gone on for so long that some Colombians do not grasp that it has come to an end.  La Vanguardia
