• For how long will this war go on?

    It is not the same thing, having land and a safe place to live, and being forced to flee to a dirty and dangerous city–a place you did not choose.

    How can a campesino continue to be a campesino far from her or his land? How can one still be a farmer amidst the  pain and anguish of a city? How can one be a campesino among paramilitaries, guerrillas and the army?

    In Micoahumado (a small town located in the southern Bolivar province) we witness a reality very different from the official one. The government portrays the campesinos as guerrilla members.
