The operation to bring three hostages out of FARC territory in Colombia is now on. This afternoon, military helicopters left Venezuela for Colombia, bearing the Red Cross logo to signify that this is a humanitarian mission.
And of course, it was a great day for two faithful campaigners who didn’t stop working for this moment:
Chavecito and Colombian senator Piedad Cordoba go over a map to see what path the rescue ‘copters will take.
They were also joined by a third amigo:
Former president of Argentina, Nestor Kirchner, there to lend Argentina’s support and oversight to the mission.
And…they’re off! Good luck, compañeros, see you on the other side.
