Caught In The Crossfire

Colombian Awa women stand in Bolivar Square in Bogota on September 01, 2009, during a demonstration against the assasination of 12 Awa natives, four of them children, in an attack last August 27 in a southern coastal region of Colombia that is a springboard for cocaine shipments. The United Nations blames the left-wing Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), Latin America's oldest and largest rebel group, for most of the 63 murders of natives this year. The Awa, in turn, say they are being targeted by a campaign of extermination for their decision to remain neutral in the Colombian conflict pitting FARC guerillas against Uribe's conservative government.
