Yesterday, a free concert was held on the border of Venezuela and Colombia to reaffirm peaceful relations between the countries.
The BBC reported that the show was organized by Colombian pop star Juanes, who told about 100,000 fans, “We are all citizens who believe that the future of a country is not only a matter for a president, a government but also for us. We are part of it – the movement of citizens.” Another well-known Colombian singer, Carlos Vives, called the event “a celebration of the union between Ecuador, Venezuela and Colombia.”
Headlines in the Spanish-language press read that Juanes was so overwhelmed by the turnout at the “peace without borders” concert and the enthusiasm of the crowd he wanted to cry.
It seems that, once again, all is well in the Andes.
