Letter to President Santos on Peace Community threats
Carol Chomsky Forest
The great knot of mountains known as the Colombian Massif is the birthplace of the Magdalena, Cauca, Caqueta and Patia Rivers. Containing 362 bodies of water in the mountains, this area is the source of 70% of the water for human consumption and irrigation in the region.
Multi-national mining companies with the blessing of the Colombian government threaten to destroy the pristine resources of this area.
