One Million People aim to mobilize and protest the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC).  The event is being organized by colombiasoyyo

The pressure and visibility is necessary. I am now personally involved, because friends of a friend were kidnapped by FARC. Politically, we are all involved.  I am not sure, however, that protests against only one side will generate an answer.  It seems to me that equivalent pressure needs to be generated against the institutional forces that promote FARC’s continued existence.

I don’t think there any more one-sided solutions (short of annihilation) possible in our complex and contradictory global-social world.
