2. You beat me to this great news!

I was listening to their encouraging press conference and wanted to badly to post this but some new kids showed up and I had to take care of them first.

Full agreement on:

•Access and use of land. Wastelands. Formalization of property. Agricultural border and protection of reserve zones
•Programs of development with a territorial focus.

•Infrastructure and land improvement.

•Social development: health, education, housing, eradication of poverty.

•Stimulus to agricultural production and the economy of solidarity and cooperation. Technical assistance. Subsidies. Credit. Generation of income. Marketing. Labor formalization.

•Food security system.

“radical transformations of Colombia’s rural and agrarian reality with equality and democracy.”

Dare one hope? Uribe and his crooked cronies are having heart attacks right now. Good.

I hope the Colombian government will stick to its word. And I hope Santos is re-elected so this deal doesn't get destroyed by crooked rightwingers or neoliberals.
