"A lot of people that supported former Colombian President Alvaro Uribe (wanted) a punitive type of justice rather than seek reconciliation between victims and the perpetrators."

MP3 Interview with Chris Knestrick, project support coordinator with Christian Peacemakers’ Colombia Team, conducted by Scott Harris

Although many polls conducted in recent weeks indicated that supporters of a proposed peace agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC guerrilla group would easily win the Oct. 2 national referendum, the deal was narrowly defeated.

But the company building the project, Energy Transfer Partners, has continued its preparation work on the project despite the Obama administration's request for a voluntary halt on both sides of the river.  Story continues

According to public opinion polls conducted over the last year, Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton and the GOP’s Donald Trump are the two most unpopular presidential candidates in recent American history. The campaign has been marked by Trump’s insults, appeals to hatred and a celebration of violence targeting immigrants and other minority groups. After years of charges of dishonesty and arrogance churned out by right-wing, Republican-affiliated groups, as well as a series major missteps, Hillary Clinton has become a polarizing figure, losing much of her appeal as America’s first female major party presidential candidate.  Story continues
