A must watch documentaire about violence fueled by poverty
5 May 2006 | by (Netherlands Antilles) – See all my reviews

Poverty happens all over the world, but senseless violence fuled by poverty you do not see or experience all over the place. I've been to Medellin Colombia on many occasions and I must say that I have never experienced any negativity nor violence while being there. But I have heard the gun battles in the hills surrounding Medellin and often wondered what that was about. After viewing this documentaire I now understand the whole story, and how difficult it is for President Uribe to stamp out violence altogether in Colombia. This is a must see documentaire to understand how poverty, insecurity, and zero opportunities for self development of Colombian youth fuels the violence in the Colombia mountain region called La Sierra.
