The Clandestine Colombian Communist Party (in Spanish: Partido Comunista Clandestino Colombiano) is an underground communist party in Colombia. It is politically linked to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), which founded the party in 2000. After the FARC officially broke with the Colombian Communist Party, a separate FARC-based party structure came into de facto existence during most of the 1990s, until the PCCC was officially founded in 2000. The party's founder and leader until his assassination in 2011 was FARC's commander Guillermo León Sáenz, also known as "Alfonso Cano". [1][2][3]
