Indigenous people are living in the middle of an armed conflict between the Farc Guerrillas and the Colombian army.
Their kids are recruited by force, their lands and animals are stolen for feed the troups, the roads are full of landmines and they cant move freely in the territories because the fear, many of them were victims of lost bullets from both sides of the armed conflict because their territories are used as combat fields.
Toribio, a small village in the middle of the mountains of Cauca, has been attacked 400 times by guerrillas in the last 3 years. Often bombs fall on the houses and the indigenous are usually counted as injured or killed.
Amid this situation indigenous of the region called in 2012 the national government and the guerrillas to ask them to go away from their territory, as they believe that the war being waged has nothing to do with them. To this proposal neither the army nor the guerrillas relented.
