Inside FARC’s Last Conference

Salym Fayad | Colombia

Farc members take a rest before heading back to their base camp in Caqueta, Colombia, after attending a conference session with the group's leadership. In September, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc) held their 10th conference at a camp in the Yari Plains, in which they unanimously ratified the contents of the peace agreement that they had reached with the Colombian government after 4 years of negotiations in Havana, Cuba.

In September 2016, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc) held their 10th conference at a camp in the Yari Plains, in the fringes of the Amazon rainforest. At the conference, the rebel group unanimously ratified the contents of the peace agreement they had reached with the Colombian government after 4 years of negotiations. One thousand rebel soldiers attended the event, while they prepared to be demobilised. The peace deal marks a historic opportunity to put an end to 52 years of armed conflict, in which more than 200 thousand people have been killed, tens of thousands have disappeared and 7 million have been displaced from their homes.
