A few days ago, in an interview with EL TIEMPO, to the question of how has the life of the people been in the process of reincorporation in these five years ?, Londoño replied:
“We are more than 13,000 signatories of the agreement. The circumstances in which we have lived are not the best. There is a socioeconomic situation that for the vast majority is extremely difficult. But the most complex situation is that of the murders of the signatories, that phenomenon difficult, which is also accompanied by what happens with social leaders. “
“There is this situation that has been generated due to the non-implementation of the agreement. If it had been implemented from the beginning, from the Santos government, everything that was raised in the agreement, in its spirit and in its letter, we would have managed to attack the causes or conditions that have now been generated for the signatories and social leaders to be assassinated.Those mafias that exist in the regions, those interests, most of them illegal, try to stop the peace process by assassinating signatories and leaders. Responsibility does fall on the Colombian State because the State must guarantee the life, not only of us, but of all Colombians, “added Londoño Echeverri.
