Reporting on Colombia

ESSAYS ON COLOMBIA’S HISTORY, CULTURE, PEOPLES, AND ARMED CONFLICT

by Julián Esteban Torres López

Prolonged war has drained Colombia of its most essential resources and has created an aggressively vengeful environment of resentment and resistance. Though the second oldest democracy in the hemisphere, an effective modern nation-state has never existed. Its 200+ years of so-called democracy have been a farce given Colombia’s feudalist innards and fascist exoskeleton.

Before

Further, the continuing armed conflict is exacerbated by the country’s historical lack of hegemony, corruption, institutionalized violence, socio-political exclusion, lack of social mobility opportunities, and foreign intervention. We must curb the traditional might-makes-right conflict resolution method and the state must gain true legitimacy if Colombians are ever to manifest their potential.

 

Julián Esteban Torres López machetes through the tall weeds of Colombia’s power vacuum and fragmented sovereignty, peels the layers of the country’s flirtation with modernity and class consciousness, dissects the insecurity of Colombia’s security policies, and looks to understand who and what stand in the way of Colombia becoming the El Dorado it could become.

The Nasiona

Julián is the founder of The Nasiona, a movement and multi-media platform that centers, elevates, and amplifies the personal stories of those Otherized by systems of oppression and dominant cultures.

We believe that the subjective can offer its own reality and reveal truths some facts cannot discover.​

Our work centers decolonization, liberation, empowerment, healing, and transformation. Through our magazinepodcastpublishing housementorship program, music series, live events, along with other initiatives and partnerships, we strive to humanize the Other.

The Nasiona Podcast

Renowned for his trauma-informed explorations of the nature-nurture of being, Julián and his The Nasiona Podcast guests examine existential concerns with compassion, care, and nuance through a decolonial prism.

These are engaging, in-depth, long-form conversations with creatives, changemakers, experts, culture architects, and justice activists that investigate our humanity, creativity, and journeys toward liberation.

We offer consulting, workshops & training, and coaching.
