Working instead of fighting: former FARC guerilleros need alternatives. A few projects have created jobs for them, but getting started is very difficult.
The Colombian government has accused Venezuela of harboring the former rebels as they launch a new campaign against "the oligarchy." The rebels said the government had turned their back on their promises for peace.
Bogota has blamed FARC dissidents for the deaths of two local politicians in the Cauca region. The killing comes just days after some prominent members of the dissolved FARC rebel army announced a return to arms.
A military operation in southern Colombia killed nine members of the rebel group FARC. The raid followed a call to arms by former FARC leader Ivan Marquez.
Across Colombia, protesters carried photos of murdered activists and signs reading: "No more bloodshed." Over 400 people have been killed in an alarming wave of violence since the 2016 peace deal was signed.
