A worldwide rally against the terrorist group FARC has been organized by a common Colombian citizen with no experience in politics through Facebook.
Early this year, Oscar Morales decided to create a group in Facebook to protest against the lies, cruelty and madness of the terrorist group that has kidnapped and killed thousands of Colombians and foreigners for over 40 years in Colombia. Three weeks later the group has over 190,000 members from all parts of the globe. This massive social networking phenomena drive the creator to set a date for the rally: February 4th.
He received immediately hundreds of messages from supporters all around the world, from Paris to Dubai. TV networks, newspapers and radio stations didn't escape from the wave. The message multiplied. The government announced the Facebook group all their support.
This day millions of Colombian citizens will stop their activities around 12 pm. Paris, DÃ¼sseldorf, Miami, London, Buenos Aires, Guatemala, Dubai, The Hague, Tel-Aviv, Washington amongst other cities are joining to our voice to make a million voices against FARC, against kidnapping, against murder.
No political party or experienced leaders are behind the protest. Just civilians who want their voices to be heard.
This is a clear example of how social networks can work for good, noble purposes.
