The continuity of the blockades has been the main point that has blocked a new round of dialogue this Tuesday between the Colombian government and the National Unemployment Committee (CPN) in seeking a solution to the crisis the country is going through from setting up a negotiating table.
Ten hours of session were not valid for the expected signing of the guarantees for social protest, which is why the continuation of the strike, new marches and mobilizations were announced.
The presidential stabilization adviser and head of the government’s negotiating team, Emilio Archila, has said that the protests should be carried out in other ways. “It cannot be exaggerated that Colombians do not have free mobility across the country, that our companies are going bankrupt and that so many Colombians are losing their jobs,” assured Archilla Radio Caracol.
For his part, as a sign of protest, the spokesman for the National Unemployment Committee, Francisco Maltés, has called on the international community to support the blockades.
Likewise, ahead of the meeting, the committee announced the “de-escalation” of more than 40 blocked points across the country, which opened up the possibility of opening an agreement. However, the government has reiterated that “it will be possible to come to an understanding when I logged in 100 percent unlocks. “
After 33 days of mobilizations in Colombia and various meetings between the government and the CPN, the main obstacles attributed to the lack of progress in dialogue were the demilitarization demanded by civil organizations and the lifting of the blockades demanded by the government. Both parties will meet again next Thursday, June 9th.
