(en) Rebeldía Contrainformativa: We spread this article written by José Antonio Gutierrez about the struggles of the small miners of the south of the Colombian Bolívar: (ca) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 13 Aug 2017 12:27:35 +0300


"the south of bolívar is a region of a unique cultural and environmental richness, of a meeting point halfway through the energetic course of the Magdalena River from the Andes to the Atlantic. It comes to him combining all forms of transport imaginable in the Colombian Rural: buses, motorcycles, cars, boats, beasts and "Voleando leg", as you say. At this point on the map, the worlds paisa, coastal and santandereano are crossed, with their traditional dialects, flavours and mannerisms. Its chaotic geography sees the Magdalena River in swamps, arms that roam lomas and jungles. In this amphibious world, where land and water cannot be completely separated, it stands, imposing, the serranía de San Lucas, one of the sites with the greatest biodiversity in the country. In the midst of all that diversity of exotic and fantastic creatures, there are also human beings, humble and amazing at the same time, who have come to this territory to exploit their mineral resources, but they have made it a place of passage, in a place The one they call home.

The process in which these communities have turned their territory into the vital space in which they reproduce a way of being in the world has not been free from conflict, violence and resistance. Rather, these three processes have been the axis of the territorial construction process in south bolívar. While each region has its particularities, dispossession and looting are constant in all areas of conflict in Colombia. The Dynamics of violence and colonization, resistance and dispossession, of militarization and paramilitarization, are surprisingly similar to those of other territories. We can say that, to a large extent, the history of the south of bolívar is the history of Colombia. However, at the same time the history of the south of bolívar is very particular. The Strategic importance of south bolívar, as well as the economic and social dynamics of the region, gives it very particular nuances that print this process a unique character, which we try to uncover with a protagonist in this story."
