03 Colombia - Tumaco
A woman cries as she recalls the murder of her family members when they were driven from their homes by paramilitaries. Afro-Colombian families displaced by development projects, especially the expansion of oil palm plantations, and by Colombia's paramilitary and military groups who protect the projects, have created a squatter community, the Brisas de los Angeles barrio, at the edge of Tumaco, a coastal city in Nariño department.
