Alfonso Cano, supreme leader of Colombia’s marxist guerrilla group FARC, does not fight to improve the situation of the country’s poor, but because of a personal lust for money, a close-up of the rebel leader’s eyes shows.
Colombia’s most-wanted guerrilla, ever since he was a student leader in the 1970s, was considered one of the FARC’s ideologists, but according to testimonies made by demobilized guerrillas his true nature is far from ideologic and instead stained by hardcore capitalism.
Colombian authorities have long discredited the supposed ideals of the country’s largest rebel group and its leaders and claim the FARC is no more than a narco-terrorist group.
