In this video from Women, War & Peace the eviction date for La Toma’s residents has been set by the mayor. Community leaders and activists, vehemently appealing the eviction, are receiving threats with increasing frequency from groups that claim the residents are “against development”. In reality, the residents are opposed to losing their land and their livelihood. If the eviction notice is acted upon, residents of La Toma will become part of Colombia’s large internally displaced population.
