New hope for peace in Colombia?

Colombia has suffered over 50 years of armed conflict. Since half a century, rebel groups, such as the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia), are fighting against the government and large landowners. Until now, all efforts to solve the conflict, diplomatically or militarily, failed. But the current developments in peace talks between the government and the FARC in Havana, seem to give reason to hope that the end of one of the oldest wars in the world is in sight.

For the first time, the negotiations also focus on the compensation of the victims: The sad result of the war between the government, the left-wing guerrillas,  right-wing paramilitaries (United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia – AUC) and drug cartels are 220 000 dead and more than 6 million displaced people. Violent crimes against civilians, like the forced displacement and expropriation of peasants, massacres, "disappearances", torture and rape especially of the rural population are still subject to the unwritten law of impunity. 

In his film “Tranquilandia”, Director Joel Stangle is giving a voice to the victims: they are drawing an alarming and impressive picture of the human rights situation in Colombia.
