But on the 5th May of 1966, the militant communists formed a guerrilla organization, called the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. A second group was founded under the name Ejército de Liberación Nacional in 1964. In the October of 2012 peace talks between the FARC and the government began. Nevertheless the attacks are continuing.[1]
