Definitive ceasefire takes effect in Colombia after 52 years

by BBC  |  published on August 29, 2016


A ceasefire has come into effect in Colombia between the main leftist rebel group and the government, ending one of the world’s longest insurgencies.

The ceasefire at midnight local time (05:00 GMT Monday) came after four years of peace talks in Cuba between the Farc and the government.

The final agreement on ending the 52-year-old war will be signed next month.

Farc leader Rodrigo Londono, known as Timoleon Jimenez or Timochenko, gave the order to stop firing.

“Never again will parents be burying their sons and daughters killed in the war,” Timochenko told journalists. “All rivalries and grudges will remain in the past,” he said.

    WONDER HOW LONG IT WILL HOLD, OR, DID HILLIARY AND OBAMA QUIT SUPPLYING THEM WITH ARMS AND AMMO?

    GOOGLE THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015, DEM, REP, IND, COP, VET, SOLDIER, MASONS, KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS, HOW CAN YOU BE FOR HER.

    NO MUSLIM IS IN THE COUNTRY LEGALLY, A LAW WAS PASSED IN 1952 BARRING THEM. JEFFERSON ALSO DID WHILE IN OFFICE.

    TRUMP SAYS HE WILL REPEAL THE LAW THAT STOPS EXAMPTION AND ALLOW CHURCHES AND OTHER ENTITIES THAT ARE BARRED TODAY TO HAVE FREE SPEECH AND NOT LOSE THEIR EXEMPTIONS.

    IS THIS WHY THE DEMOCRATS AND SOME REPUBLICANS DO NOT WANT TO CLOSE THE BORDER BECAUSE OF CUTTING OFF THEIR SUPPLY OF DOPE.

    BET YOU WILL NOT LISTEN TO ALL OF THIS. IT TELLS ABOUT MURDER, COCAINE PARTIES, UNDERAGE SEX, SEX PARTIES, MONEY LAUNDREY AND DOPE RUNNING FROM JUDGES, STATE OFFICIALS, ETC.
