MORALES URUETA, Grace Angeline  and  HERRERA DELGHAMS, Leonardo. A perspective from violence that the population of Santa Marta (Samarios) read. Investig. desarro. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.2, pp.276-297. ISSN 0121-3261.

This quantitative research was aimed to observe the level of violence in the local news content of the District of Santa Marta, published in newspapers such as: El Informador, Hoy Diario del Magdalena, Ajá y Qué, and Al Día. The analysis characterized the cultural and structural direct violence among the spaces where it usually develops: Nature, Man and Society, according to the theory about the structures of violence in society by Johan Galtung, for the analysis of text structure the approach of Teun Van Dijk was used. Results indicate that the violent events that occurred in greater proportion were observed in environments of humans whose acts constitute direct violence, followed by society, whose acts constitute structural violence, and finally nature, whose acts constitute cultural violence.

Keywords : Violence; Cultural Violence; Structural Violence; Mass Media; Journalism.
