Early November 2021: 'Tanja Nijmeijer - from guerrilla to peace process'
"I joined the guerrilla in the firm belief that I would never get out of the jungle. That I would dedicate and give my life to a revolutionary ideal.
In 2012, that guerrilla decided that there had to be a peace process that, unlike previous attempts, also led to a disarmament process. My life in the jungle was suddenly interrupted and I began my reintegration process into Colombian society. Bad luck? Luck? A stroke of luck?
This book is an account of what I saw and experienced. This does not necessarily fit into the frame of reference that most Europeans have of the FARC, or of Colombia.
There are testimonies available from victims of kidnapping, from soldiers, from politicians, but this is my story, the testimony of someone who is still convinced that another world is possible."
