One of the most surprising things I have observed in my time with the environmental and human rights defenders of the Peace Community of San José de Apartadó is the way in which the concept of humanity develops.
We can find it in the speeches they make at community meetings, in the political choice to live nonviolent resistance in a conflict zone, in the grief of burying the comrades and companions killed.
We can find it a few weeks after the latest double murder, a few dozen metres from the site of the 2005 massacre, in a boy reading his son a fairy tale before bedtime.
