Colombian Actor Manolo Cardona Campaigns for “Yes” in Peace Referendum

MEXICO CITY – Colombian actor and producer Manolo Cardona called Wednesday on his countrymen to vote “Yes” in next week’s referendum on the peace agreements between the government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, FARC, rebel group after 52 years of war.

“On Oct. 2, this coming Sunday, there will be a referendum for peace, and I want to invite all Colombians in the country and outside to vote ‘Yes,’” Cardona said. “Enough already of so much war! Peace for Colombia.”

Speaking at the Fenix Awards ceremony for Ibero-American movies, Cardona described himself as “a good Colombian,” adding that the peace agreements “are very important for the country.”

The FARC and President Juan Manuel Santos’s administration reached a peace agreement on Aug. 24 in Cuba after almost four years of negotiations, and the pact was signed in Cartagena on Monday.

The agreements are subject to approval by Colombian voters in a referendum.

Should the “Yes” side win, it would mark the end of an armed conflict that left at least 220,000 people dead and forced almost 7 million others from their homes.
