The Suriname Guerrilla War (Dutch: Binnenlandse Oorlog, 'Internal War') was a war in Suriname between 1986 and 1992 which was fought between then-army chief Dési Bouterse and the Jungle Commando of his former bodyguard Ronnie Brunswijk, who originated from the Maroon social group.
The war revolved around power over Eastern Suriname and control of the trade in cocaine. The war had serious consequences for the Maroons (especially the Ndyuka) and Suriname: villages were demolished, roads (including much of the eastern East-West Link), water pipelines and power lines, schools, public buildings, clinics, and businesses were destroyed.
The period of the most intensive fighting took place between 1986 and 1989. In March 1991 a peace agreement was signed in Kourou led by Romeo Russel in May 1992 signed Brunswijk's guerrilla army and supported by Bouterse Angulagroep, Group Mandela, Kofimakagroep, and Tucajana Amazons (led by Thomas Sabajo) peace with the Surinamese government, which was endorsed by President Venetiaan on August 8, 1992.
