WHAT DOES FARC MEAN IN ENGLISH?

FARC

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia—People's Army are an irregular military organization involved in the continuing Colombian armed conflict since 1964. The FARC-EP have a claim to be an army of peasant Marxist-Leninists with a political platform of agrarianism and anti-imperialism. The operations of the FARC–EP are funded by kidnap to ransom, illegal mining, extortion and the production and distribution of illegal drugs. The strength of the FARC–EP forces is indeterminate; in 2007, the FARC said they were an armed force of 18,000 men and women; in 2010, the Colombian military calculated that FARC forces consisted of approximately 13,800 members, 50 per cent of which were armed guerrilla combatants; and, in 2011, the President of Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos, said that FARC–EP forces comprised fewer than 10,000 members. In 2013 it was reported that 26,648 FARC and ELN members had decided to demobilize since 2002. According to a report from Human Rights Watch, approximately 20-30% of the recruits are minors, most of whom are forced to join the FARC.
