"From independence to emancipation" --- We know the power of the word, but what if we are not allowed to speak? Not always words are necessary to express the greatest happiness or the most terrible the bitterness. Sometimes a simple sigh or just enough to look realizing the state of a person or the future of a people. And now we realize that despite not having many avenues massive expression, although our cries of pain caused by poverty, exploitation and repression, are being silenced and camouflaged obvious that our reality is far from the fairy tale of paradise that we sell that ridiculous slogan "Colombia is passion." It would be laughable and even pretend to compare our crude reality that often we are presenting the small screen. Tremenda naively assume that we are just a watchtower or a hat vueltiado supplies the basic needs of an entire nation.

While it is true that our cultural wealth is enviable, it is undeniable
us are stolen, and being thrown into a market that little or nothing, leaves
their merit, the people. Always has been that our nation,
Latin America, has been violated and exploited natural resources both in
territories, and labor among others. Not only do we have pushed a
capitalism that never ask, but we have become victims of
bloody spoils today in the midst of the bicentennial of independence, it seems
increasingly flare up with aggressive neoliberal absorb us
continuous. We're bleeding.

And the danger now, after several centuries of bleeding, is that we run
blood, and we must make ourselves heard and a cry that is heard and combative
Echoing, in order to complete this unfinished independence without doubt
claims to be concretized.

Throughout Latin American history have been sparked by the great struggles
quest for emancipation and complete satisfaction of needs
economic, social, cultural and political institutions of each people. This field
Battle accounts for the international political influence in the nations
Latin America.

The thirst for the oligarchy to continue with dynamic capitalist - now
neo-liberal, has driven people to rise up to ensure
life and welfare.

Today we must accept and understand that it is through social movements and
politicians who are clamoring for independence, autonomy and freedom that we can continue
fighting for our freedom. Rather than stopping to tell the story of Colombia and
Latin America, with only broad look at the neighborhoods of Bogotá,
Antioquia, coastal, and others to deceive the misery conformism
exploited and abused population. It is therefore urgent to continue getting up, holding
resistance 518 and 200 years of the struggle of our people to spend
of our independence to our necessary emancipation.


Youth and dispossession

The plunder is a systematic approach used by the ruling class to
appropriate the wealth of the population, using them for the accumulation of
capital and hence its stability. This strategy is based on
commodification of the body and life of people who do not belong to that
ruling class, and also the appropriation of their territory. In Bogotá the spoils
is experienced, among others, in the larger project of city-region, since it uses
a series of tactics that rob us of the tangible and intangible wealth
our territory, because this wealth in the hands of the people are a problem for
capital and, therefore, the above are dedicated to strip and cause the
individualism, competition and alienation exist as common behaviors
between us and ourselves. So this area is in a constant dispute
between life totally different projects and conflicting. The city-region plan
submitted to the inhabitants of territories exislos holders of wealth and therefore
deny their possible relationships of emancipation.

The land use plans as the Centre Plan and Airport Plan
looking precarious life of people in poor neighborhoods of stripping
their territories, especially from their places of dialogue, creating a rift between the
same population. Examples are the large buildings and shopping centers
are segregated spaces and leave the people to build relationships that were previously
own spaces such as streets, parks, etc. This, for youth
of these neighborhoods, resulting in increased stigmatization of their practices
community, defining them as gangs and vandalism, thereby generating fear of
youth organization. The spaces that have belonged to the youth have been
also stripped and practices have been changed. The capital offers only a
project for youth: being a consumer of their goods and make part of the cycle

The spaces have been countercultural, as the district championships, touches
or, more generally, spaces that exist for young people to think like our situation
unemployment, unemployment, inability to study (demonstrating the spoliation
different areas) are functionalized, placed on the dynamics of competition and
consumption, creating a fragile identity and abstract that does not suggest the
youth in its materiality, its own problems and dynamics. In this
felt the land use plans are accompanied by a militarization
of life and youth areas.

In poor neighborhoods, we can see how the youth is attacked simultaneously by
police, army and paramilitaries that impose curfews, searches,
education recruitment and warmongering, which is now reaffirmed with the bases
gringo. In this way, take advantage of the precarious conditions of youth,
they themselves have created, to prevent the community, critical awareness and
youth rebellion.
