The Global Greens Celebrate the Ceasefire Between The Colombian Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC)

A definitive ceasefire and end to bilateral hostilities was signed between the Colombian state, from the hand of the President, and FARC’s guerrilla fighters. More than fifty years of war seem to have come to an end. And thus one of the bloodiest armed conflicts in Latin American history, leaving more than 300,000 people dead, 4,700,000 displaced and 25,000 missing. Colombians will be asked to vote in a plebiscite in October to approve the peace deal. The plebiscite will be a simple yes/no vote to end 50 years of war. Alianza Verde is urging Colombians, whether they live in Colombia or abroad to vote to vote massively SI A LA PAZ in the plebiscite.
