“Will Colombia peace talks end FARC control?” – Inside Story Americas Al Jazeera English

This segment aired last night, October 18, on Al Jazeera English’s “Inside Story” program.  Participating in the discussion with me were my colleagues, Marc Chernick and Jim Jones.

I am not crazy about the title of the program, which seems a bit presumptuous, but the host deftly engaged us in a good discussion about substantive development issues that are on the peace agenda for the Oslo and Havana talks.  Click below to view the segment:

    Manuel Marulanda founder of FARC was member of the armed peasants of the liberal party in the “violence “period after Gaitan’s assassination, the peasants that he represented were left behind when the two parties agreed to the National Front, Since then the land issue, the unmet demands of the peasant population are deeply rooted in this war, If there are conditions now to pay once and for all this huge debt, peace might be a reality, Then we have to take into consideration the demands to review the natural resources explotation policies in place that will be strong when and if the NLA joins the process!
