On Monday, the FARC came “optimistic” to the peace talks with the government, noting that the new agrarian proposal would ensure food sovereignty of Colombia. After a recess of one week, negotiators from the guerrillas and the government of President Juan Manuel Santos, resumed talks in La Habana (Cuba).
Luciano Marin Arango, a.k.a, Ivan Marquez, the chief negotiator of the FARC, told the media today that “we are optimistic”, as he entered the Palace of Conventions in La Habana. The FARC presented ten new protests over food sovereignty of Colombia.
One of the measures proposed by the insurgents is to create a “Special Zero Hunger Program“, which is provided with funds amounting to one percent of GDP in Colombia, “reduction from current spending on security and defence.”
