They indicated that this hike is done on behalf of "victims of armed conflict, to demand the ability to weave a present and a better future so that there is not a victim of the armed conflict in Colombia".

The mobilization came from 26th Street up to the National University, then came to the Cra. 30, he went to the Calle 45 until reaching the Carrera 7th, went through the Center District memory, the Planetarium and ended in the Plaza de Bolivar in Bogota.

In that place the peaceful demonstration with its own symbolic and cultural event of indigenous peoples, where reconciliation were asked to "cease war and peace flourish" in the country closed.
