The entire world know that to perforate the earth and do explosions underground, cracks are formed that cause the water to diverted from nourishing bodies of water, rivers, creeks and lagoons.

Todo el mundo sabe aquí que al perforar la tierra y hacer explosiones en el subsuelo, se forman grietas por donde se desvían las aguas que alimentan nacimientos, ríos, quebradas y lagunas

Honoring International Women's Day and Denouncing Sexual Violence against Women and Mother Earth,
Press release from the National Indigenous Organization of Colombia (ONIC).
Excerpts: “Women in our villages preserve our language and our culture. We are wise and strong, caretakers of Mother Earth and defenders of life itself. Indigenous peoples are being killed silently, and in the first half of 2011, 51 indigenous people were killed. Murdering Indian people is not the only way to end our lives and our peoples. Repeatedly, women are victims of systematic rape, forced recruitment and forced displacement. This type of violence is to intimidate, control, divide, "punish" the people and communities, and leaders and indigenous organizations, and is part of the strategy of military control over the territory. Sisters and brothers -- of all tribes and all peoples – [we hope that] that today our voices be [elevated] to a song for a dignified life. Let this be an opportunity to continue building collectively for a world without violence against women.”
