Suárez Gold: Afro-Colombian Miners Defending Their Heritage

Loading...
Afro-Colombians have been carrying out small-scale mining in Colombia's Cauca region since their ancestors settled there in 1637. Today their descendants continue to chip away at the red rock in search of gold, seeing it not only as a means for earning a modest living, but also as an activity deeply linked to their culture. Between 2002 and 2010, Colombia's government gave out 7,500 mining exploration titles to national and foreign companies eager to exploit the country's precious resources. In the film we hear of the Afro-Colombian community of La Toma's brave, and sometimes deadly, struggle to prevent the invasion of mining companies and defend their ancestral livelihoods at all costs.

Mi Voz Cuenta: En el Proceso de Paz

Loading...
"These documentaries are a project of Weather Television in partnership with the Office of the High Commissioner of United Nations for Human Rights in Colombia. Following talks between the National Government and the FARC, these documentaries aim to give voice to the victims not only of the insurgent group but also paramilitary, military and police, all within the context of internal armed conflict. The victims are a key agent in making a peace process, to build memory, avoid repetition and impunity and achieve reconciliation processes in the context of war." -- The Ministry Projects/Project Counselling Service website.
