Written by

The presence of a plural number of guerrilla Comandantes in Havana, who will integrate the technical commission, is an unprecedented fact that will bring together representatives of the insurgency and active military, with the common purpose of developing recommendations for the two parties related to item 3 of the Agenda, on issues of bilateral ceasefire and abandonment of arms, is undoubtedly an event of singular political importance, result of the progress that has been made. But it is also a clear sign of the commitment of the FARC-EP to the process, a step forward for peace with social justice in Colombia.

In my view, there are two powerful arguments that support the existence of such committee.

We have also pointed out the total alignment of the mainstream media with the ruling class. The two, including 'Center Uribe' (Centro Democrático, NT), get greatly upset when we do not express what they want to hear from us.
