Concert Without Borders
Juanes and other Latin music stars, including Juan Luis Guerra, Miguel Bose, Carlos Vives and Alejandro Sanz, performed a free concert March 16th on a bridge linking Colombia and Venezuela as a gesture of peace and unity and a way to ease tensions among South American countries.
The "Peace Without Borders" concert was a response to a Colombian raid into Ecuador to kill a top rebel leader March 1st that resulted in Ecuador and Venezuela briefly sending troops to their Colombian borders.
"We just want to consolidate the union between our peoples," Juanes said. "We are brothers and sisters, we are equals. We just have to raise one flag together, the flag of peace."
