The people of Medellin, the surrounding Antioquia department and all of Colombia have been the victims of a 60-years-long civil war -- provoked mainly by communist guerillas -- that has resulted in more than 220,000 documented assassinations, thousands of kidnappings, forcible displacement of more than 6 million, massive narco-trafficking, and a consequent socio-economic catastrophe that to this day continues to stifle lives and opportunities for millions.
