Cajamarca Youth Invitation to March Against Mining

Once again Tolima, Colombia and the rest of the world will come together to show that we oppose the so-called "mining locomotive" being imposed upon us by the Colombian government.  It does not take into account the dignity of the people, our sacred territories, our flora and fauna, our mountains, water and life on our territory.  We will take to the streets in a peaceful manner with joy, unity, love, happiness, and environmental awareness, as part of the fourth march to defend life in our territories.
