Historic FARC-EP Guerrilla Conference Could Be the Last

IN PICTURES: The guerrilla conference is the FARC-EP's decision-making center and could be the last of its kind.

In the lead-up to the plebiscite on the Colombian peace process, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia have gathered for their 10th Guerrilla Conference.

Some 200 delegates, 29 members of FARC-EP's top leadership, about 50 guests and 350 journalists are attending the conference, where it is expected that the members will vote on each part of the peace agreement.

This year’s conference runs from Sept. 17 to 23 in Llanos del Yari, a town in an Indigenous region of southern Colombia that is home to several campesino movements.
