Colombia is no longer governed by elites, they say in France

Written by ebookingservices

For the first time in two centuries, the people govern in Colombia and not the castes, a challenge for the progressive forces, social and political activist Edilberto Muñoz affirmed today in this capital.

In statements to Prensa Latina, the member of the Colombia Humana movement in France welcomed the inauguration of President Gustavo Petro on Sunday, which he described as a wonderful day for his country, Latin America and the world.

This is a transcendental change for politics, because we have a popular government with which we hope to definitively put an end to neoliberalism and promote policies for life, he stressed.

According to Muñoz, there are already clear signs of a new vision, with the intention of reestablishing diplomatic relations, resuming commercial exchange and reopening the border with Venezuela.

It is very good news that we are reactivating the ties of friendship with our Venezuelan brothers, something very important for the economy in the Colombian border area and a relief for the neighboring town in terms of food imports, said the activist, who also highlighted the positive impact for Latin America of this rapprochement.

For Muñoz, the new stage that has arrived in Colombia represents a challenge, which demands the consolidation of the progressive movement, for the good of the country and the region.

He also asserted that Petro will be a world leader in policies for life, putting an end to two centuries of domination by the elites, which plunged the beautiful and rich South American nation into violence and poverty.
