La Macarena, Peace Territory

Written by

The national outrage because of the decision of the National Authority of Environmental Licenses (ANLA) to grant the company HUPECOL a licence to exploit an oil block in the Special Management Area of La Macarena (AMEN), which forced the national government to subsequently revoke it, demonstrates the validity and the urgency of profoundly addressing the debate on the economic model that we, Colombians, want for our country.
