Jose Santos Cabezas says goodbye to his mother Islavia in the Tumaco airport, as he returns to Bogota. Cabezas was an Afro Colombian activist in Narino, helping families trying to implement the 1991 Constitution which guarantees them the land on which they have historically lived. Cabezas had to flee the death threats of the paramilitaries six years ago, and could only come to visit his mother briefly before returning to Bogota, to avoid being killed. - David Bacon - 2006-10-30
