Colombia’s Peace Talks And The Lives Of Farm Workers And Campesinos
Colombia peace negotiations appear close to a resolution. The government, leftist Guerillas and paramilitary forces have been at war for half-a-century, and millions of victims like Colombia’s Afro and indigenous populations, union workers, farmers and campesinos have been caught in the crossifre.
We talk with Nidia Quintero, General Secretary of FENSUAGRO, Colombia's largest federation of agricultural workers unions. She’ll tell us how she thinks a peace agreement would impact the lives of farm workers and campesinos, who are subject to oppression, disappearance and murder at the hands of warring factions in Colombia.
