Narco News Bulletin Plan Colombia Extends into Peru: "At the root of this question is the fact that the current government has two different tendencies. One is aristocratic, authoritarian, and centralizes power, without recognizing that Civil Society and farmers' organizations deserve a voice in the policies of the State. The other tendency is more democratic and decentralizes power, and believes that Civil Society not only has a role, but, better said, a fundamental function in the creations of the State's strategies." This quote comes from an extended interview with Hugo Cabieses, Peruvian economist specialized in the coca trade. I've know Hugo for 25 years --- back in the days when neither of us had so much gray hair.
