Maailman Kuvalehti interview: Colombia's generation of peace (COL)

  • Sun 28.5.2017 14.50–15.20 Taiga Stage

War has been the norm in Colombia for 52 years. Last October, a potential peace agreement was voted down in a referendum. A slim majority of voters wanted to reject the agreement that would have allowed the FARC guerrilla movement to rejoin the society and participate in politics. A new agreement was formed two months after the first one failed. This time, the people weren’t asked. What does Colombia’s future hold? What would it take to achieve lasting peace? How can past crimes be addressed and the people unified? Katalina Vásquez, editor of online publication Generación Paz, is interviewed by Anni Valtonen, editor of Maailman Kuvalehti. Interview is in Spanish, interpreting in Finnish.
