For the fourth consecutive year since the Victims Law was approved, on April 9 th the National Day of Remembrance and Solidarity the Victims of the armed conflict, which has bled the country for more than five decades ago, will be commemorated. Although some people date back to the liberal leader Jorge Gaitan’s assassination in 1948. A date that will not be missed by the political and social forces to make clear their support, pulses and apathy. Beyond all, this year's commemoration renews a deep conviction: the largest and most effective remedy to the suffering of war is the negotiated end of armed confrontations. Therefore it is expected that the March for Peace, promoted by the Bogota Mayor Gustavo Petro, social, trade union, artistic, religious and left-wing politics, become an unprecedented support to the peace talks between the Government and the FARC in Havana (Cuba). This support is accompanied by proposals and political demands. The purpose of this march is to mobilize 100,000 indigenous people throughout Colombia, apparently in order to promote a bilateral ceasefire and finally to start negotiations with the ELN. The most significant events in the last week focused on: Germany appointed special commissioner for the peace process with the FARC.
