FARC rebels reborn as ‘revolutionary force’ party
Colombia’s former FARC rebel group has renamed itself the Common Alternative Revolutionary Force, as it transformed into a political party following its disarmament.
In spite of earlier resistance from some members of the movement, the name retains the revolutionary spirit of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) Marxist rebel group, which fought a bloody 52-year campaign against the state before signing a peace deal last year.
