Colombian Author Alfredo Molano Thinks Colombia’s Peace Process Lacks ‘Many Guarantees’
Journalist Alfredo Molano has explored almost all of Colombia to document through his books and chronicles the nation’s depth and, as someone who understands the nation’s reality, believes that “many guarantees are lacking” for the implementation of the peace agreement with FARC because there are regions where the presence of the state is almost non existent.
“The Government has not been able to fulfill its functions because the real problem is its lack of action in those territories where it has never had a presence, so it has not taken into account the claims of those communities that were strongly opposed to the peace accords,” said Molano (Bogotá, 1944) in an interview with Efe. At the XXX International Book Fair (Filbo), Molano presented his new book, “De río en río” (From one river to another) (Aguilar), which provides a “look at the black territories” of the Pacific region, one of the most neglected and at the same time most beaten by the Colombian armed conflict.
