dscf460026 September 2016 marked a historic date for Colombia: the FARC (Colombia Revolutionary Armed Forces) and the Government of Juan Manuel Santos signed an agreement putting an end to the armed conflict which lasted over five decades.

Certainly, there are still other organizations which could be the subject of an agreement with the Colombian Government. But this is a first step towards peace until October 2, date of the referendum where Colombians will be asked to endorse this agreement.

FXB is mobilized for peace in Colombia. Along with other civil society organizations, we are committed to work for the reconciliation and for a just society, fighting extreme poverty as an objective and strategic pillar of the post conflict period which begins.
