Security In Colombia: ENL continues to gain ground over FARC

Of all the guerrilla groups fighting in Colombia, the ELN is the largest that is still operational and able to affect change in the country. The group’s lead negotiator, Reyes, has commented on the movements and aspirations of the ELN saying that the rebels are working for peace and are ready for a solution to the warfare that has plagued the region. Reality may be very different than the picture painted by Reyes, however. As the ELN is quickly taking over large amounts of land and resources left behind by a large departing guerrilla group known as FARC, Black Mountain Solutions is growing ever more watchful of the situation to provide the best security services in Colombia.  

FARC, known as the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, is in the process of demobilizing and their departure has left a vacuum that the ELN seems to be filling. Many of the areas the ELN are moving into now are hotspots for illegal drug trading, smuggling, and other organized criminal activities. Black Mountain Solutions has been monitoring these areas for a long time, and the current situation looks as though there will be a volatile power struggle taking place for some time yet.

Obtaining quality security services in Colombia is a must both now and in the foreseeable future. The ELN is only one of many guerrilla groups in the country, and the success of the peace talks currently taking place are largely dependent on the ability of the different militant groups coming to terms with one another- which now does not seem possible. Reyes confirmed that idea when he said that there would be no ceasefire unless everyone involved agreed to it at once.

This situation poses serious potential conditions for the future of Colombia. If there is no ceasefire, and if the guerrilla groups continue their search for power in the areas known for organized crime, the fighting is very likely to continue indefinitely.
