The march of turbans

Jaime Arocha
On November 17, from the village of La Toma (Suarez, Cauca), 70 women started walking towards Bogotá, wearing turbans, which make explicit their African descent.
They march to demand the Government to advance the collective title to their lands, stagnant for years, and to comply with the requirements of the LawT1045A, by which the Constitutional Court protects the ancestral lands that the ancestors of the black communities of the region created in the early seventeenth century.
