In this video segment from Women, War & Peace, Cauca, a resource-rich region in Colombia, is introduced. Cauca and nearby La Toma, a gold-filled mountain, are volatile areas due to their abundant natural resources. Many people are looking to take advantage of the resources in Cauca and La Toma, and the Afro-Columbian communities that have lived in these areas for centuries are now threatened by the potential investors. Without support from the Colombian government, these communities may cease to exist.
