Abandoned Site of 2006 Landslide

A 2006 landslide ripped through Marmato’s historic centre. The area has since been abandoned. Rather than constructing mitigation projects, the government has been promoting the displacement of the entire town to the neighbouring community of El Llano.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
