Los Olvidados

Forgotten and rarely heard from are the villages and populations of Native inhabitants who are mostly ignored by us, their overlords. When is the last time you heard news about them? Other than killings and drug and alcohol abuse specials, they are los olvidados, the forgotten ones.

I think we should take a look at them, for their state is our future of wealth and power inequity...

Anyway, in the BBC
there are pictures, and a story:
Police in Colombia have driven members of an indigenous group from a strategic mountain top they were occupying.
More than 20 people were injured in the clashes in Cauca province, in Colombia's south-west.
Nasa tribesmen had taken the army post on Cerro Berlin on Tuesday and forced the soldiers stationed there to leave.
The Nasa say they are tired of being caught in the middle of confrontations between the security forces and members of the Farc rebel group.
Somos todos el tribu Nasa.
