Adam talks to Sarah Krupp, whose graduate work at the University of California at Berkeley took her to Tumaco, on Colombia's Pacific coast. She discusses the experience of Las Varas, an Afro-Colombian community that sought to abandon coca cultivation.
WOLA interviewed Las Varas community leaders as part of a 2011 report on Tumaco. See video here. We are now concerned about the safety of these individuals, who — as Sarah Krupp explains — are now in Bogotá after receiving threats from armed groups.
