A “no” win, proponents say, would force Santos back to the negotiating table to get a better deal (Spanish.) Both the FARC (Spanish) and the government (Spanish) have said there’s no chance of that. It’s take it or leave it, they’ve told the Colombian people.

“Enough already of losing generations of Colombians. Mothers were asking that 17 years ago when my daughter made her first communion. #YesToPeace.”

Meanwhile, the most compelling argument for a ”yes” vote might come from those involved in the fighting. In an account on Colombian news site La Silla Vacía (Spanish,) an army soldier narrates how he had to walk through minefields and recover bodies dismembered by them; how he came across massacred civilian victims and watched a fellow soldier die in his arms.

The title of his story: ”I want to tell those who promote war that they don’t have the slightest idea of what it is.”
