Ivan Marquez, head of the FARC-EP delegation involved in peace talks with representatives of the Colombian government, said in a statement that the FARC will spare no effort at the negotiation table, and hopes that government will not consider “kicking over the table.”

The FARC-EP’s Central General Staff called the efforts to divert attention over the real causes and players responsible for land seizures in the South American nation – a combination of State and paramilitary violence – malicious and perverse.

The note states that the situation was conceived as a State policy in order to facilitate the handover of a good part of national territory to multinationals for exploitation, through unfair contracts, resulting in severe environmental damage.
