The story of a rural Colombian community in a conflict area that declared itself a peace community, a massacre that occurred there in 2005, and U.S. grassroots and government responses. The book analyzes the multi-billion U.S. program known as Plan Colombia and the impact of U.S. military involvement on killings by the Colombian military, as well as the many grassroots initiatives that have resisted war and injustice.
“With enormous sensitivity and respect for human life, John Lindsay-Poland tells the stories of ordinary Colombians who put their lives on the line for peace. No one possesses his grasp of events or such a tremendous heart.” — Robin Kirk, author of More Terrible Than Death: Drugs, Violence, and America’s War in Colombia
