Given the controversy generated by the proposal of the appointed Minister of Education, Alejandro Gaviria, of invite the schools of the country To study the final report of the Truth Commission on the consequences of the armed conflict, Gaviria himself came out in defense of his proposal.
“The Truth Commission is an institution, the Truth System in Colombia has constitutional status, and what the Commission has said from the beginning is that they want to encourage conversation,” said the former rector of the Universidad de Los Andes, from the programmatic withdrawal from Historical Pact in Santa Marta.
For the same reason, given the accusations coming, above all, from the Democratic CenterGaviria responded that “it is not an indoctrinationIt is not an ideology. It’s a conversation about something the country needs. All nations need a story, and that story in a country like Colombia, with a tragic history of ignominy and human suffering, needs to respect the pain of the victims”.
