New Negotiations

By a narrow margin, the people of Colombia voted "no" to the peace deal with the guerilla Farc. The President of Colombia has already taken steps to renegotiate some of the more controversial provisions of the peace deal.

It is believed that many voted against the deal, because it was too lenient against the guerilla and its members. After all, a guerilla is often not much more than an armed band of criminals, and many Colombians have probably seen Farc as such.

I hope it will be possible to go back to the negotiating table, striking a new deal. Colombia needs peace.
