After 52 years of conflict, the FARC, a revolutionary Marxist guerrilla created by farmers evolved to become the largest guerrilla group in South America. Over the 5-decade war, more than 200,000 people died, 27,000 people were kidnapped, 6 million were displaced from their home and over 30,000 remain disappeared in the last war in the Americas.
In September 26 the President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos and the top commander of the FARC, signed a peace treaty to end the war. With presence of the UN secretary Ban Ki-Moon, and top leaders of the world, signed the peace treaty that was negotiated for 4 years in La Havana, Cuba.
On October 3, Colombian will vote in a referendum to support or be against the treaty. There is a percentage of Colombians that don’t agree with the treaty, claiming justice has not be done and commanders should pay high prison sentences, deliver the money they have gained in the war.
Plaza de Bolivar, the main and most historic plaza in the capital Bogota, was the main scenario where people saw live the signing of the treaty.
