GARCIA SANCHEZ, Andrés. Black Communities, Territorial Peace, and Resistances Along the Atrato River. Tabula Rasa [online]. 2022, n.41, pp.47-71.  Epub Apr 26, 2022. ISSN 1794-2489.

This article analyses the shifts of social mobilization undergone by Black communities gathered in the Atrato Integral Peasant Association’s Great Community Council (Cocomacia) in the mid Atrato region. Face to the effects of terror on their bodies and collective lands, their organization forms and their ways of life, Black peasant communities became «displaced» and «victims», so they got on creative processes to produce other territorialities and shape unprecedented was of coalition with varied social agents, in order to call for respect to their ethnic rights, protection of nature, collective reparation and non-repetition of any form of violence against them.

Keywords : Atrato river; Cocomacia; spatialities of exile; resistances; post-conflict.
