The “monsters” came out of their caves and for the first time, faced the press. The Farc, the oldest and most powerful guerrilla in Latin America, was about to give up arms, to sign peace, and to ratify it in collective agreement, the rebels abandoned their trenches to deliberate and show themselves to the world. The Tenth Conference of the Farc, the first public, the last in arms, was held in the Llanos del Yarí, department of Caquetá.
Although the implementation of the Peace Agreement was not what expected, a year after the Conference, in September 2017, the FARC constituted its political party during its first congress in public life. Their departure to the political arena without weapons, writes a new page in the history of the country.
