Protests against the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known as the FARC, were held in 165 cities with nearly 100-thousand people around the world committing their support to the demonstrations on Monday.
The idea of the protests against the FARC, was born less than a month ago on the social networking web site, Facebook.
The main marches took place in Colombia but in neighbouring Venezuela, where President Hugo Chavez has taken a major role in hostage negotiations, about three thousand people wearing white T-shirts reading "No more kidnappings, No more deaths" marched in Caracas to urge the FARC to renounce kidnapping.
In Argentina, several hundred people marched to the Colombian embassy in Buenos Aires to call on the FARC to stop kidnapping.
In the Peruvian capital of Lima, thousands of people, including many Colombian residents and the Colombian ambassador to Peru, marched first to the presidential palace where they were received by Peru's President, Alan Garcia.
In Mexico, about 200 people, many waving Colombian flags, gathered around the capital's Angel of Independence monument.
Some of the demonstrators held photos of family members or friends who had been kidnapped.
