My heart aches for our “Campesinos” in Colombia who are been beat up by the police (esmad) just because they “committed the biggest crime” of providing not only Colombia but many other countries with food (Coffee, Rice, Potatoes, Avocados, Bananas, Sugar, etc) Their only choice in life has always being to work the land because that is how they grew up, most of them had never had the chance to go to school, they barely speak a good spanish, they haven’t had the chance to have “nice” clothes, to own a tv or a cellphone. They have been in peace for ever, in Colombia, doing what they do best and now with the US-Colombia Free Trade Agreement they have to “grow” imported seeds, seeds sent from the US otherwise their seeds get destroyed, their humble houses are invaded by Esmad police and kids and elders are being beat up in front of everybody. This is terribly unfair and I want to do my best to help them.
