One of the things that bothered me when doing my research was reading about people who have been displaced from their homes. It’s just such a horrible thing to do to people and I really feel for the people who have had that happen to them. Millions of Colombians have been displaced from their homes and many have problems assimilating to different lives. In a video I found, many of the people were displaced from farms that they had, had for generations. The farmers had a hard time acclimating to city-life and many couldn’t find jobs. The Colombian military and government has done more than take the homes and land of its people, they’re also economically disenfranchising them.
I’m posting the video below as well as a website that has statistics about internally displaced peoples.
