This action is part of a long struggle to resist government abuses and paramilitary agressions. In the sit-in, which lasted over 24 hours, members of other communities adherents to the Other Campaign were also present. Among them, membres from the community of Molino de los Arcos.In that community, an opposing group took advantage of the fact that most of the men were absent to attack mostly women and children with sticks and rocks.
